The Ingenium Story

Ingenium has always been about personalized learning.

Glenn Noreen
Founder / Board Chair

Ingenium Schools was founded in 2006 to develop charter schools designed around quality learning tools and systems. Our model was Chugach School District in Alaska, which was one of the first school districts to win the Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award in 2001. The Baldrige Award is the highest level of national recognition for performance excellence that a U.S. organization can receive. Ingenium incorporated a number of Chugach’s systems and tools in its classrooms and operations in its quest to empower learners to take charge of their learning and their lives.

Ingenium’s vision has since expanded to restoring joy and meaning to learning.

Why we are different

Ingenium is different in our approach. Our students leave Ingenium empowered with the capacity and tools to continually improve themselves and the world around them. We work to make our classrooms a place where students are owners and decision makers about their own learning so they are truly prepared for the future.

Empowered students!
