The Stride Method
We combine mind and body to strengthen our students’ executive function skills.
SEE THE SCIENCE
BEHIND THE METHOD
Stride Learning uses research-backed methods to help students with all types of learning challenges.
Kids aren’t born with executive function skills – they’re born with the potential to learn them.
Exercise releases endorphins while improving oxygen and blood flow to the brain, which improves mood and information retention.
Students respond more positively to mentors they can relate to — in age, background, and interests.
Students achieve small, manageable tasks more easily than when confronted by one large, arduous project.
What we do
Our approach to mentoring, movement, and accountability sets Stride apart and allows us to encourage the individual learning style of each student.
Designed and built with students in mind, our Colorado learning center blends individual classrooms, a homework center, and a full-scale movement zone — all under one roof.
Whether you’re getting focused while tossing a football, or practicing Spanish verb conjugations during a ping-pong match, our gym is the place to get a student’s mind moving. Just keep an eye out for rogue Spikeball hits.
Our private classrooms provide dedicated quiet spaces for mentors and students to work together on assignments, planning, or studying.
Staffed with subject experts to help students with math, science, and language arts, the homework center can be booked and used as spot to study for upcoming tests or complete assignments.
Need a place to hang out before sessions or while waiting for your student? Stride has a few common areas where parents, mentors, and students can convene.
