Preparing all students for life after high school is not easy. We're here to help.
Inflexion is a nonprofit consulting group that helps educators better prepare students for life.
We give districts and schools a new way to look at themselves — with all their complexity and culture — to find ways to create a learning community with the best systems and supports to ensure all students graduate ready for college, career, and life.
the inflexion approach

We use The Inflexion Approach as an organizational framework designed to support schoolwide implementation efforts and to build learning communities that work for all students. The Inflexion Approach builds on the work of Peter Senge and Michael Fullan and was developed by Inflexion’s Executive Director, Matt Coleman, who used the framework as a high school administrator to drive decisions resulting in equitable outcomes for students.

The Inflexion Approach highlights four elements critical for making quality decisions to create learning environments that prepare students for life after high school. Our work at Inflexion supports educational leaders as they focus on these four elements. We believe that a clear, shared organizational identity informs the structures needed to support learning and empowers readiness for all students.

inflexion approach: identity, structure, learning, readiness for all

Learning communities that effectively prepare all students for life after high school have a clear sense of who they are. Shared vision, values, and beliefs are the foundation of all they do and inform the decisions they make toward readiness. Learn more

To implement a shared vision, schools need organized structures to support the learning environment. Schools that invest  time and energy in leadership, processes, and systems ensure that checks and balances are in place to meet the needs of all students. Learn more

Schools that empower all students to become lifelong learners design their programs and instruction around a clear definition of student readiness. They support all students in their unique paths toward gaining these skills both in and out of school. Learn more

At Inflexion, we employ a holistic framework for student readiness based on Dr. David Conley’s Four Keys to College and Career Readiness – Think, Know, Act, and Go. We believe this framework highlights the real skills students need to thrive in the 21st century. Learn more
