About Great Minds

A group of education leaders founded Great Minds in 2007 to define and encourage content-rich, comprehensive education for all schoolchildren. In pursuit of that mission, Great Minds brings together teachers and scholars to create exemplary instructional materials that bring joyful rigor to learning, spark and reward curiosity, and impart knowledge of history, science, art, and more, delighting students and teachers alike. The Great Minds motto is, Every child is capable of greatness. Great Minds curricula help teachers help students achieve their greatness.

Our Mission

At Great Minds, we believe great education is the foundation of a great democracy. We believe that every child is capable of greatness. And it is our mission to help teachers help children achieve it.

Achieving our Mission

The Great Minds curricula aim to inspire joy in both teaching and learning. We give teachers the tools to take their students beyond rote memorization to give them a deeper and more complete understanding of the subject matter - setting kids up for success in higher education, careers and life.
