ABOUT MASTERY TRANSCRIPT CONSORTIUM:

The Mastery Transcript Consortium (MTC) is a collective of independent–and soon public–schools organized around the development and dissemination of an alternative model of crediting and transcript design. Over the next decade, the MTC hopes to change the way students prepare for college and career. A dues-based organization with more than 170-member schools, the MTC was awarded a $2 million matching grant by the Edward E. Ford Foundation in April 2017.

While the Mastery Transcript product itself is still in the design stage, the Consortium has quickly filled with leading schools intent on shaping a more humane, effective, and meaningful tool for inspiring learning to mastery in students and then communicating it cleanly to colleges and universities.
