Schools & School Districts

Schools image

Every year in classrooms across the U.S., school districts witness the devastating effects of summer learning loss. This yearly phenomena manifests in the form of lost academic skills, decreased teacher motivation, and increased systemic costs due to academic interventions. 

Our new modular solutions make it easier than ever for you to deliver high-quality, measurable, and data-driven after-school and summer learning programs that  accelerate learning for year-round impact. 

Every year, scholars enrolled in our partners' programs achieve measurable improvements in academics, social-emotional learning, and self-confidence. According to a recent study, 100 percent of teachers reported that BellXcel's professional development positively influenced their approach to teaching in the new school year. Teachers said they integrated growth mindset, deployed positive behavior management tactics, and allowed students more choice and agency in their learning.


Transform students into scholars

Students enrolled in BellXcel-powered programs are known as scholars, which underscores our culture of high expectation. Scholars are at the heart of our work. While programs impact children of all walks of life, our scholars are usually underperforming students from families who struggle to make ends meet, preventing them from accessing quality learning year-round.


Empower educators

Our comprehensive Professional Development solution provides a deep dive into BellXcel systems while facilitating their use of research-based techniques in 21st century learning and whole child development. Through a collaborative approach, our PD will help you ensure that your programs are consistent and of the highest caliber.

Educator Profile: Meet Nancy Kelly

Meet Nancy Kelly

For Nancy Kelly, a school teacher for over 20 years, BellXcel's biggest impact boils down to relationships. She says BellXel enables her to nurture stronger relationships with current students, and forge new ones with her future class. Third-graders are introduced to Ms. Kelly’s expectations and teaching style, which will make their transition into fourth-grade much smoother, and less jittery.

It is what our teachers want and what our students need. We are re-imagining summer learning in the Tuscaloosa City Schools as rich and engaging learning experiences for our students.
