Mastery Learning Center of Excellence

Our goal for any school that partners with us, is to help it become Mastery Learning Center of Excellence. We give that designation to schools that successfully implement the Mastery Learning Program with fidelity, and execute at a high level against desired metrics for performance, process, outcomes, and impact, as outlined in our Logic Model.


Defining Mastery Learning Excellence

For the Age of Learning Foundation, a Mastery Learning Center of Excellence is a school or other form of educational institution that exemplifies the highest standards of personalized mastery learning. 

Such a school is characterized by its exceptional commitment, seamless integration of technology, comprehensive stakeholder capacity, and continuous innovation. It is a center that showcases compelling synergy between visionary leadership, robust digital infrastructure, and empowered educators. 

In our vision of a Mastery Learning Center of Excellence:

  • School Leaders champion the purpose, culture, goals, and practices of mastery learning. They continually advocate for its progress towards transformative impact on student growth, gains, and achievement. School leaders exhibit proactive engagement in Mastery Learning Program development and implementation, providing unwavering support to teachers, technologists, students, and families alike.
  • Technologists assume a pivotal role by empowering and sustaining a seamless digital ecosystem. One that enables learners to stay in their Zone of Proximal Development both at school and at home. 
  • Teachers are true pedagogical artisans in a Mastery Learning Center of Excellence. They expertly craft lessons that blend digital and non-digital resources to create dynamic and engaging learning experiences. They successfully transform themselves into mastery learning tutors, as they inspire learners to discover their Mastery Learner Identity. The professional development of such teachers is a constant journey. One marked by continuous improvement and the cultivation of teaching strategies that blend the best of tutoring, technology, and family time.

Qualities of a Center of Excellence

A Mastery Learning Center of Excellence is a champion for holistic educational growth, where learners experience personalized pathways to mastery. The center nurtures academic success by helping children discover their Mastery Learning Identity and by fostering curiosity, confidence, capability, and creativity in every learner. 

The center ensures that all four of these mastery competencies are equally valued in the way formative and summative assessments are applied as teachers and leaders guide each student’s unique learning journey. 

The school helps teachers create productive learning ecosystems for children. Collaborative learning environments that fluidly integrate family engagement and forge meaningful partnerships between school and home that propel learning and reinforce mastery.

Mastery Learning Center of Excellence also operate highly effectively. 

  • Adaptability and innovation are woven into their DNA.

  • Budget allocations are strategically leveraged to maximize mastery outcomes.

  • Technology is embedded routinely in daily activities. 

  • Ongoing adjustments are informed by data-driven insights.

At its greatest strength, a Mastery Learning Center of Excellence is the embodiment of personalized mastery learning. The school consistently exceeds expectations and provides inspiration for other schools aspiring to do the same.
