The Mount Vernon Organization

Our global structure enables us to provide best-in-class research and design coupled with the ability to test and learn theories and pedagogical methodologies in real-time, in both a classroom and virtual setting. Each of the three components of our organization fuels, sustains, and supports the next.

Mount Vernon Ventures fuels the Mount Vernon School and the Mount Vernon Global Campus by providing consistent access to the latest research and learning methodologies enabling both the Atlanta-based and global campus the strategic run way for growth and innovation.

As a nationally recognized innovative independent Preschool through Grade 12 school in the Atlanta-metro area, The Mount Vernon School’s 260+ faculty, and professional staff along with over 1240 students and 800+ families provides an environment where educational theories can be put into practice, where they can be iterated and best practices can be derived and shared. Many of our consultants are current faculty and administrators at The Mount Vernon School where they continue to hone their CBE, IBL, PBL and Design Thinking teaching skills.

Providing the ultimate in a flexible experience, Mount Vernon’s Global Campus, MVOnline, gives insights into what an asynchronous experience is like when the traditional boundaries of space and place are removed.


During the past decade, we have had the opportunity to serve as a Transformation R&D partner to hundreds of schools and organizations throughout the United States and across the globe.
