Unapologetically Black Education
Unapologetically Black Education

We don’t just teach reading and math.

At Reconstruction, we teach Black Glory, Black Love, Black Genius, Black Kindness, and Black Excellence. Traditional education struggles to discuss Black contributions in an accurate, identity-affirming way. We tell the real story.

Reconstruction empowers everyone to shine.

Built For You, By People Like You
Everything at Reconstruction — the instructors, curriculum, and classes — is designed for you, by people like you, who put you at the center of every decision.
Identity Development
Education is more than a list of facts — it helps shape beliefs and identity. We cannot leave such important decisions to indifferent schools.
Instructors
Who Get It
Our instructors understand the Black experience, how race permeates every aspect of American society, and how the magic of the Black community has influenced the world for centuries.
Things You Should Know
We read more Richard Wright than Charles Dickens and go deep into topics like discrete mathematics, entrepreneurship, and economics. We are not about what you have to know, we are about what you should know.
Live, Small
Groups
Reconstruction groups are never more than six learners with one instructor. All live, from the comfort of your home.
A Crew You
Can Count On
We are a team that will move mountains to make sure students succeed!
