Founded in 1986, Renaissance Learning is the creator of Renaissance solutions—the nation's leading programs for pre-K to 12 school- and districtwide improvement. Renaissance solutions enhance virtually any curriculum with a combination of research-based software, professional development, technical services, and project management & implementation consulting.
Renaissance Learning is widely known as the creator of Accelerated Reader, the world's most popular reading management software. In addition to reading, Renaissance Learning has innovative solutions to help you maximize math, writing, standards mastery, and language acquisition, and dramatically accelerate learning for all students.
Renaissance Learning also has introduced Renaissance Place, the breakthrough technology that centralizes all of your Renaissance software, student data, and student test scores into a single, convenient, web-based management system. The results are easy access—anytime and from any place, advanced statistical analysis, and consolidated school- and districtwide reporting. Renaissance Learning acquired AlphaSmart, Inc. in June 2005.
