Our Member Schools are Transforming the High School Experience
PURPOSE: The Mastery Transcript Consortium® (MTC) is a growing network of public and private schools who are introducing a digital high school transcript that opens up opportunity for each and every student — from all backgrounds, locations, and types of schools — to have their unique strengths, abilities, interests, and histories fostered, understood, and celebrated.
Who Joins MTC
Schools that are embracing real-world, collaborative, project-based learning that prioritizes 21st Century skills, SEL, and meta-cognitive skills. These Mastery Learning schools understand that traditional transcripts do not, and cannot, capture everything that their students are learning in, and out, of school.
Well resourced high schools — both public and private — with learners who perform extremely well on traditional academic indices, but are demonstrating worrying signs of stress, anxiety, and burnout. Leaders of these schools are seeing in real time how traditional measures of performance are fraying the well-being of the teens in their care, and are actively exploring alternative approaches that are more humane, without asking learners or their families to compromise on their college and career aspirations.
School leaders whose learners are traditionally underrepresented in higher education. These leaders recognize that their students have talents and capabilities that are overlooked by traditional academic measures--they are eager to empower their learners with tools that allow them to tell their authentic stories, and to join a national discussion about re-thinking the college admissions process through a lens of equity.
Educational Thought Leaders
School leaders who want to stay at the forefront of the latest research on competency-based education, standards-based grading, and to join an active Community of Practice around the same, so that they can guide their staff and faculty to best-in-class resources for professional development in mastery teaching.
What We Do
What MTC is doing with the Mastery Transcript is a key part of the evolution of education in the 21st century. There are a lot of conversations out there about how we educate students, but this is a key one related to how we design and assess education and how we measure what students have learned and how they’ve absorbed and are able to translate their experiences.
