By harnessing the power of Brainfuse’s innovative tutoring solutions, the district aims to nurture a generation of well-rounded and successful individuals.

About Brainfuse: In 1999, Brainfuse developed a scalable, research-based solution that enabled school districts to offer online tutoring to all students at an affordable fixed cost. Tutoring, once a luxury to a privileged few, was now a realistic option for districts.

From countless programs in rural areas to state/citywide programs (including New Mexico, New York, Los Angeles County, Chicago, San Francisco, and Houston) no other online provider has tutored more students, across as many diverse populations. And with a 97% student satisfaction rate, and industry-leading staffing and quality control features, no other provider is more trusted than Brainfuse.
