3. Thrively


Founded: 2012

Also honored in:

“Thrively is a personalized learning platform that uncovers students’ strengths and interests, helping them discover their purpose, build skills, and create personal impact!

Kids are far more likely to embrace an activity when they excel at it, and they are far more likely to excel at it when it matches their strengths and interests. We’ve worked with two leading pediatric neuropsychologists to develop an assessment for kids that helps them find out exactly what those strengths are – for instance focus, creative thinking, analytical ability, agility, and much more.

It’s like a Meyers-Briggs test for kids – but much, much cooler – at the end, your child is presented with insights into their dynamic personality. From there, we present you with a variety of relevant courses and local activities that are customized to complement their strengths and foster their interests.”
