Spectrum Education Inc.

Spectrum Education is a small virtual learning community with the mission of empowering exceptional students to reach their full potential through a rigorous and engaging virtual learning community. They create online learning communities where instruction is differentiated based on the students particular needs and the family is part of the education team.

The non-profit organization was formed by two dynamic mothers and a dedicated special education teacher, Barb Southwick.  The formation of the non-profit was in response to the closing of a successful virtual classroom for students with exceptional abilities in the public schools. Nothing comparable was found to accommodate students with unique learning needs. Thus, the small group of dedicated women formed this organization to help families better educate their children.
