A 501c3 Proudly Helping Youth and Teens Succeed Since 1978
The Learnatory, a STEAM and educational consulting organization, has been a key catalyst in promoting STEAM and skill acquisition by elementary and high school students since 1978 allowing us to help close digital knowledge gaps and inspire new ways of learning, innovation, and different ways of thinking. We are proud of the progress The Learnatory has made and the influence we have had in the field of STEAM education, and we believe students throughout the country have benefited from our services.
After analysis of the impact of COVID and careful consideration, we have decided to operate The Learnatory until June 30, 2022, after which our services will no longer be available. It has been an amazing life experience to work with tens of thousands of students, parents, teachers, and schools during this journey. We are eternally grateful.
You may get in touch with us at email@example.com if you have any questions.
For simplicity and clarity, our programs are based upon the set of five competencies identified by the Collaborative for Academic, Social, and Emotional Learning (CASEL) that all young people and adults need to learn to be successful in school and life. This framework has been widely accepted across the country.
Cognitive and character skills work together as dynamic complements; they are inseparable. Skills beget skills. More motivated children learn more. Those who are more informed usually make wiser decisions. We aim to make students aware of their potential and help them tap into their inner strengths.
We know that self-control, openness, the ability to engage with others, to plan, and to persist are the attributes that get people in the door and on the job, and lead to productive lives.
We offer initiatives to encourage and support the development of learning environments that are emotionally and physically healthy. This includes peer-to-peer interactions and collaborations to grow teamwork and relationship-building skills.
We help students learn to practice ethical decision-making skills and demonstrate responsible behaviors in personal, school, and community contexts. Our trained coaches are positive, enthusiastic, supportive communicators who offer trusting, focused, goal-oriented counseling.
We give students something to look forward to by helping them find the desire, tools, and grit to turn their dreams into realities.
Interactive classes and workshops empower young people to experience how perseverance, passion, and pluck can take them from ordinary to extraordinary to become the best they can be.

Newly applied to the field of education, we use the science of neuroplasticity as the underlying foundation of our coaching to build new, positive habits. Through neuroplasticity, we are able to help students make stronger mental connections between where they are today and a successful future long-term.
Grades 3 - 12
Students are taught and trained by experienced professionals who bring insight and candor to the classes they teach offering a realistic perspective of the skills sought and the opportunities available in a range of fields. Our teachers are specialists who bring bona fide expert knowledge about what it takes to do a particular job in their field of STEAM.
Our coaches aim to connect with students by sharing their dreams and aspirations. They help students make progress in their lives to attain greater fulfillment. They support students' social and emotional well-being by helping them improve their relationships, academic performance, and day-to-day lives. They deliver thoughtful, realistic coaching based on the student's Success Action Plan and goals.
Defining clear, concise goals is very important. This workshop helps students prioritize and focus on the important things in their lives.

This practical, evidence-based, yet aspirational training teaches students that by following specific steps, they can actually make their dreams come true.

Training in mindfulness helps students strengthen the mind, body, and spirit connection. It incorporates music, movement, games, and relaxation techniques used by famous athletes.
Students learn to use a problem-solving model and key problem-solving skills in this mind-challenging workshop! They learn to adapt their personal decision-making style to every situation, use various decision-making tools and techniques, and learn how to avoid problem-solving traps.
This fun, feel-good training is filled with activities that boost self-confidence and provide tools and strategies that teach students how to believe in themselves and face challenges in life confidently using self-control and self-management.
This training program teaches critical learning and study skills. But, the real value is in the dozens of uncommon but proven techniques for learning anything fast. By the end, students will have the skills to become a "superlearner".

I am so pleased with The Learnatory and its summer camp! I like that it offers a wide spectrum of kids, too. I am so happy with the environment. It's priceless! Thank you for the program. Angels were shining on me the day I found this camp.
The Learnatory is pretty cool. If I get up to go to something at 7 am on a Saturday morning, it must be pretty cool! I’m learning to do things kids my age can’t do like make video games and animations. I am going to start making Apps for the iPhone soon! I think this is a really good program – and it is fun. No stress.

I am glad that I discovered The Learnatory STEAM Program. I believe that my child has an edge and an advantage that has shifted, if not broadened, his educational path. As a parent, The Learnatory has made me a believer!

As has been our tradition for decades, each student completing the program will receive an official Learnatory transcript with a Skills Checklist highlighting what they have learned in the course.
The transcript reflects their current level of understanding and ability to apply the skills learned.
Since 1978, The Learnatory has taught students college-level skills in a language they understand and a level they can apply in the real world.
Receiving a Certificate of Achievement means the student has learned the skills taught to a level that satisfies our requirements for proficiency.

I just wanted to take the time to say, thank you, for everything. Working as an intern at The Learnatory (aka GenTech) was my first ever job, and I had no idea, back then, how valuable it would be to me. It was because of the experience I got back then, and because of your referral, that I was able to get the internship I worked at during the summer before I graduated - and now, I'm employed at the same company full-time.
I've heard the horror stories of college graduates working at KFC, and I am incredibly blessed to have received the opportunities that I was given, which allowed me to rise above that fate. I was able to land my dream job literally on the day I graduated, and today, I'm happily employed.
I wouldn't be here if it weren't for you.
Thank you so much,
