Who We Are

Our mission is to provide nimble programming for schools, relational pedagogy for students, and responsive professional learning for faculty.

Our Vision

To spark curiosity in learning, to enhance sustainability in schools, to build strength in connection, with courage to educate progressively through innovative, human-centered, equitable solutions.

We Support Independent Schools

We support and grow a network of independent schools and faculty who share the belief that coming together creates a stronger learning community. Through Constellation Learning Institute, schools and teachers explore new models of education, utilize shared excellence in teaching and professional learning, and collectively resource to expand passion-based course offerings for their students.

we Offer Personalized learning

We have over ten years experience in designing and teaching online and blended learning. We launched our work to provide personalized learning through relational and responsive online courses, as a way to complement campus curriculum. We offer a breadth of courses taught by faculty in our network, each of whom design and teach classes with an emphasis on connecting.

We Expand perspectives

Students and their curiosities have always been our foundation. While still feeling a deep identity within their campus culture, students benefit in CLI courses from expanding their boundaries through diversified topics and a wider range of community perspectives. We empower students to succeed in digital school and work environments, in order to be innovators themselves, now and in the future. 

We Adapt to your needs

As schools face an increasing range of challenges—— from pandemic, to catastrophic weather events, to sustainability challenges—— we have expanded to prepare schools for practical resilience and the ability to pivot in response to unprecedented circumstances. We work closely with each individual CLI partner school to develop programming specifically for their distinct needs. We develop courses on request; we build differentiated learning paths, and we offer a range of flexible scheduling options.

Our Statement of Commitment to Humanity

We believe education should be inclusive of and accessible by everyone, thereby guiding our commitment to creating diverse educational experiences where all feel supported, respected and safe. We strive to create a culture that empowers every student to find their place in the world and inspires each student to work towards developing an equitable and just society. 

We engage in continuous work and learning to understand and celebrate differences. We value creating a foundation of welcoming interactions through open, honest and regardful discourse, both for our students in our courses and for our faculty in our professional growth.

To do this well, we value building a team of educators that are representative of the community of learners we serve. We work to foster and embrace the sharing of diverse perspectives and experience. When growing our professional team and network of teaching faculty, Constellation Learning Institute is committed to hiring passionate student-focused educators from a wide variety of backgrounds. All qualified educators who apply receive consideration for employment without regard to race, ethnicity, ancestry, disability, religion, gender, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, national origin, genetics, age, veteran status or any other federal, state or local protected class.

It is important to us that our on-going work and commitment is representative of the shared ideals in our collective of partner schools to support a diverse, equitable and inclusive community.
