Our mission, to unlock the magic of learning and foster student success by creating the most engaging and extraordinary digital learning solutions, began in 2002. Now, for nearly two decades, StrongMindSM has blazed a trail in online education.
Damian Creamer founded StrongMind as the exclusive technology and curriculum partner for Primavera Online High School. A proud veteran of the United States Marine Corps, serving from 1991 to 1996, Damian works diligently with his growing team of nearly 500 digital learning professionals to continuously reinvent and advance curriculum, technology, and instruction to empower students and teachers throughout the country. While StrongMind has already benefited more than 225,000 students, Damian is determined to ensure we succeed in our vision to become the trusted and recognized source for innovative digital learning solutions.
We improve by being open, honest, and direct. Communication and collaboration are key at StrongMind. With weekly “Mini-Hands” and “Glass Board” meetings, employees have a moment to reflect on the week, give kudos, and provide project updates and recent accomplishments. Teams also hold demonstrations of their work, allowing them to “show and tell” and answer questions from others.
We work to achieve great outcomes every day. Everyone at StrongMind has one common goal: to help students succeed. We think with the end in mind, always moving forward and using feedback and user data to guide our work. Great results come from great communication and teamwork!
We collectively own the future of StrongMind, and we each strive to make our goals a reality. We are passionate about our work and strive to make a meaningful difference in the lives of students and teachers with innovative digital learning solutions. To help do this, we must also empower one another in reaching professional and personal goals, including staying healthy and in pursuing hobbies.
Data drives insights; insights drive decisions. We work hard to make sure we are meeting the needs of our partners – which means taking deep dives to analyze and understand data.
StrongMind is proud to work closely with our users to generate the best content possible. We listen to feedback closely to determine course and features updates and additions, and we adapt along with our students, teachers, and administrators.
We push forward when others turn away. StrongMind was born out of necessity – to solve problems not being addressed by current solutions. Our goal is to support schools with what they need, which means exploring new ideas and pushing through unique challenges. We work closely with partners to create customized and pioneering solutions – some that may not even exist today.
The best ideas come from different voices, viewpoints, and experiences. With over 200 dedicated employees, we have a wonderfully diverse representation of opinions, expertise, and experience. We encourage others to share their ideas and passions. When it comes to our incredible work, we don’t expect – or want – everyone to share the same perspective. Through honest and candid communication, despite our differences, StrongMind will continue to grow as we reinvent the learning experience and support thousands of learners.
StrongMind is creating a culture that revolves around a single purpose — reinventing the learning experience for students. Centered around six values, StrongMind employees live these values in their work each day as they collaborate to find innovative solutions to educational challenges. At StrongMind, we believe in empowering our employees to be creative and support their pursuit of interests in and out of the workplace.
Together, we’ll create the best digital learning solutions.
In order to fulfill our vision of becoming the most trusted and respected digital learning solutions company, StrongMind is dedicated to attracting and retaining the brightest minds in education and technology. We put our partners first and are committed to operating with respect, candor, and persistence.
