About Edhesive
Edhesive brings STEM to schools in a way that is effective, affordable and easy to adopt. We provide online curriculum from recognized experts, student supports, teacher tools and resources, and professional development.

Our unique approach is driven by our belief that online learning has the power to reach all learners regardless of their location or resources, yet can only succeed if students feel a personal connection to it. Teachers at local schools who may or may not have expertise in the subject area meet with students regularly to guide, challenge and inspire them through the course curriculum. In doing so, students are enriched and motivated to do the work of learning in ways that technology alone cannot do.

Edhesive's mission to dramatically increase access to the highest-quality STEM and computer science courses has reached more than 1,000 schools in 48 states nationwide. For the past four years. students who completed our courses have outperformed students on the AP Computer Science exams.
