Learning software company welcomes public to Bristol HQ
BRISTOL — SchoolHack Solutions, an education technology company founded by Addison County educators, has relocated to the former Vermont Bicycle Tours property at 614 Monkton Road in Bristol. SchoolHack offers personalized learning software to school districts across the U.S. and internationally.
SchoolHack co-founder and CEO David Lipkin said the new location is and ideal setting for taking the next step in the company’s growth while establishing an even deeper relationship with the local community.
“We’re thrilled to have a dedicated office space in the same town where many of our team members have served for decades as educators and counselors,” he said.
This Thursday, Feb. 15, SchoolHack will host an open house with food and refreshments at its new Monkton Road headquarters from noon-1 p.m. and 4-6 p.m. Contact Ed McGuire at 1-888-502-5438 for details about the open house.
When SchoolHack realized it was outgrowing the VCET co-working space in Middlebury, Gregg Marston, former president and owner of VBT, saw the opportunity to nurture a promising young company. According to Marston, “We are delighted to have the SchoolHack team occupying our space and are confident that the culture and soul of this special property will incubate success for SchoolHack just as it did for VBT.”
SchoolHack participated in the selective LearnLaunch accelerator in 2017 and serves 15,000 students and teachers at 75 schools across 10 states. The company has received recognition from educational leaders for promoting a holistic approach to education where learners gain essential skills by pursuing their unique goals and interests.
Company co-founder Josie Jordan was a long-time Mount Abraham Union High School teacher who helped launch the innovative Pathways Program.
“We’re on a mission to make education more personalized, meaningful and transformative for students,” Jordan said. “I’m so grateful to my colleagues, students and their families who inspired this shift in educational values that is taking place in Vermont and beyond. We’re honored to continue this important work from Bristol where it all began.”
