What we do?

We create a living record of every learner's journey. Headrush supports schools who are breaking the bounds of traditional education with smart planning, execution, assessment and reporting of deeper learning. We superpower teachers as mentors and enable students to be the heroes of their own story. 

Why we do it?

Headrush was founded with the realization that barriers can be significantly lowered by the smart application of the right software. Founded in 2017, Headrush began without a name, building, team nor investors. Instead, Headrush was born as a convergence of stories, as initial founders Shane and Mike, along with code-ninja Jeff, joined forces with one aim in mind-- to help innovative schools adopt a more learner-centric approach. Dedicated to creating educational software that makes a difference in school’s today, the Headrush mission is and will always be to foster self empowered learners who are future ready.
