Online classes with teachers who get it

Our classes are held remotely via our online platform, with real instructors leading groups of six students at a time.

Traditional education struggles to discuss Black contributions to American and world history in an accurate, identity-affirming way. We’re here to help all students see themselves differently -- in school and in life.

It's more than an education.
It's a movement.

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!

"Our parent leaders at PAVE have been asking for curriculum and academic tutoring that is centered in telling the truth about our history and celebrating Black excellence. So, thank you!"
