Everyone understands the importance of offering children purposeful learning opportunities. At Upschool.co, we take things a step further. Inside our platform are the tools to bring each child’s unique passions to life in the most meaningful and impactful ways.

School Success Stories

By a bustling expressway in the middle of India stands a school that swelters in the hot sun. The students, who are presently undertaking Upschool’s online course, Be the Change”,  were inspired to take possession of an unused, barren plot of land and are in the process of transforming it into a flourishing forest to provide shade, improved air and soil quality, and to house local wildlife.

We visited their school with our film crew to learn more about it.

100% Free Education.

We believe every child on the planet should have access to a quality education, and wherever possible, education should be free. Our mission is to bring both of these realities to life.

Entrepreneurship With Purpose.

Within our platform are opportunities for students to learn real entrepreneurship skills that have real impact. We provide the support for students to take their product or idea to market so that they can generate real income for their school community and other causes they care about. We think that’s pretty unreal!
