Illuminate Education partners with K-12 educators to equip them with data to serve the whole child and reach new levels of student performance. Our solution brings together holistic data and collaborative tools and puts them in the hands of educators. Moment-by-moment, our users can visualize each student's progress, determine the right instructional or intervention strategy, and take the next best action. Headquartered in Irvine, CA., Illuminate supports over 12 million students and 2000 districts across all 50 states.

Founded at the University of Virginia’s Curry School of Education, CaseNEX, now known as IO Education, supports educators through an online, case-based approach. Multimedia cases, or “slices of life,” form a realistic connection between professional learning and the complex school environment.
