Indigo Education Company Brings Personalized Learning to U.S. Classrooms

Indigo Education Company offers a range of personalized learning initiatives that focus on individual strengths to improve achievement and help students chart fulfilling futures.

BOULDER, CO.   Indigo Education Co., an education technology company, promotes and implements personalized learning through non-academic, in-depth assessments and diverse school-based initiatives that put individual students at the center of education.

Indigo Education combines online assessments with success coaching, an online career readiness course, interactive workshops and school-based academies that teach entrepreneurship and specialized job skills, such as computer coding, programming and development.

Sheri Smith, founder and CEO of Indigo Education, says that her organization’s goal is to bring transformative change to public education, which has been built on a one-size-fits-all model. Smith advocates for a personalized learning approach that encourages innovation, individual strengths and a student’s own interests.  

“The standardized approach to education is ineffective, and students feel disillusioned about their futures,” Ms. Smith said. “Schools are eager for change but overwhelmed with daily challenges. Indigo Education offers solutions that can have meaningful impact and lead to positive results.”

Founded in 2013, Indigo Education uses the Indigo Assessments as the starting point to identify individual strengths in students as well as educators to bring personalized learning into the classroom at the high school and college level.

Indigo Education has delivered the Indigo Assessment to 75,000 U.S. students, as well as educators, in more than 100 high schools and colleges, with a comprehensive inventory of skills, motivators and behaviors based on more than 35 years of research.

Through Indigo Impact Initiative, the company’s nonprofit, Indigo works with underserved communities to establish community partnerships that improve employment opportunities for students after high school.  By offering insights not found anywhere else, Indigo enables schools to transform their culture and improve outcomes. Schools and universities that engage students through Indigo include:

  • Peak to Peak High School in Lafayette, Colo.

  • Boulder Valley School District

  • Whitehorse High School in Utah

  • Phoenix Coding Academy
