Find Your Stride.
We develop students’ executive function skills through mentorship and movement.
Middle and high school students are individually paired with a mentor who helps them develop executive function skills to succeed in school and beyond.
- Pair with a mentor to guide executive function skill development and drive accountability.
- Develop the tactics to help break down schoolwork each week into manageable tasks.
- Receive academic support and find focus in the homework center.
We work with students from a variety of institutions to improve executive function skills in a challenging academic environment.
- Establish routines to break down assignments into achievable tasks each week.
- Stay accountable with weekly check-ins by text, call, or email from a mentor.
- Achieve balance in both life and academics to reduce stress and anxiety.
We created Stride to help students hone the tools needed to discipline their gifts. It’s the process, not the product, that inspires us each and every day. We are students, mentors, family, and friends. We are Stride.

“Stride Learning’s students have responded overwhelmingly well to their lessons about how the brain works and how to improve their executive function skills. They continue to provide their students with the tools they need to feel empowered and ready to navigate school and adolescence. This is what we want education to achieve.”

“Stride Learning started mentoring my daughter Annie when she was in high school. They have been a counselor/friend/spiritual cheerleader and trusted advisor to her ever since. I feel so lucky that Annie was able to have the help of such kind, smart, positive people who she respects to help her navigate the minefield of high school. Annie is now a senior in college, studying criminal justice. Whenever she’s home, she makes a point of catching up with her mentor. We ALL feel lucky to have them in our lives and we know they will ALWAYS be there for Annie.”

“Stride Learning has changed my children’s academic lives. They worked with both my daughter and son and during the time they were with Stride Learning, they learned how to manage their time, get their homework and studies in on time, and were way more organized overall in school. Stride mentors connect with every kid and teach them how to help themselves and become independent, self-advocating students. I would recommend them to anyone without hesitation, they truly care about each and every person they interact with. Their passion for working with kids is what makes them so special.”
– Stephanie H., parent

– Jennifer W., parent
“Stride Learning’s mentors believe in kids and want to see them succeed. They utilize movement and different visual formats to help make learning fun. They keep things light and they are quick to turn around a bad attitude with a sense of humor. They help your kid with homework struggles and anything else your student needs. With Stride Learning, you will be able to watch your student succeed in school this year.”
