Schools We Help
COMPREHEND offers a true academic accelerator with dynamic, media-rich, eCurriculum in core and elective subjects. We base our Precision, Mastery-Based Personalized Learning on four teaching methods: Connectional, Elevational, Directional, and Positional. Teachers will have tools to meet each student where they are in the learning process.
Who we are
We are a nonprofit organization based in Lewisville, Texas. Beginning in 2015, our curriculum was developed in both paper and digital forms to serve the most challenging students in 3rd – 12th grades. We learned that our solutions work as well with advanced students as they do in credit recovery and supplemental applications. The systems and pedagogy of COMPREHEND’S highly successful precision mastery-based model informs and creates a perfect environment for personalized learning. Our tools and models ensure high-quality education experiences.
Today, for example, 24 of the top 50 alternative accountability charter schools in Texas, including ISDs, using our curriculum for core classes, we are a proven leader in student success. Ref. Texas Education Agency data https://tea.texas.gov/reports_and_data/
Students We Help
Students of all learning styles. We automate the teachers ability to accelerate the student's particular learning style. Student grades will be based on their mastery of content and skills rather than things like attendance, participation and extra credit which don’t necessarily reflect mastery. Reference: Steven J. Bourgeois, PhD Elizabeth Camarena

“I came here primarily because, I guess, the traditional system doesn't really work for me.”
“This school is quite different. Different from charter schools that I know. Like it's more academic.”
“I got all F's, so I came here to this school and I thought I could be better and I knew if the work was right in front of me, that I'll do it, and I did.”
“I’m on a program that makes it a lot easier and gives me more help for my classes so I could pass them.”
“I had always wanted to graduate early. . . . Just the way it was all on your own, at your own pace. I really liked that. Loved it.”
Our Rave Reviews
Comprehend = (Curriculum x Methodology) Teacher
We are delighted with Comprehend and highly recommend it. Having used others, we feel Comprehend has been the easiest to work with. We love the courses they offer, and the ability to add our own courses or edit the existing ones is a great benefit. It is easy to update and manage courses - the platform is very user friendly.
“The COMPREHEND curriculum has helped my teachers and students. Even our SpEd students have experienced success due to the fun, multi-media approach. Our students enjoy the online learning and that’s the biggest plus.”
