It is a true honor to be recognized by one of the top publications in education technology.”
StrongMind Digital Curriculum was originally developed for the 20,000+ students at Primavera Online High School, Arizona’s largest, and one of the most successful online high schools in the country. In addition to building a pedagogically sound, research-based curriculum, it is pushing the boundaries in mediums such as video, education games, interactive graphs and teacher-led lessons to bring key concepts to life and help students master critical skills.
Driven by the conviction that every child deserves a great education, Creamer founded Primavera in 2001 and soon after established StrongMind as the exclusive technology and curriculum partner for the school. His several accolades include an iNACOL award for outstanding individual contribution to K-12 blended and online learning and two Certificates of Congressional Recognition for leadership and innovation in online education.
