We are a thriving educational ecosystem that provides access for a diverse student population and empowers them to succeed. Through innovations in personalized virtual learning systems, student services and educational pathways, we prepare our students to achieve their academic goals, excel in their careers and contribute around the world.
Altius Education will provide the most effective personalized pathway to a quality university education.
Achieving our mission and vision is a big job, an important job, and it’s a job that’s always changing as the world of education evolves and we discover more about how people learn. These are the principles that guide our work...
Everything we do—every class we teach, course we develop, call we make, partnership we form, line of code we write, or meeting we attend helps our students get the knowledge, skills, support, and opportunities they need to complete their education and reach their goals. We create every initiative to help our students succeed, and we evaluate every outcome based on our students’ success
We are committed to being transparent and honest with our students, our communities, and each other. Not only is openness essential to discovery and innovation, it also ensures that everyone has the information they need to make smart choices and sound judgments.
We are always ready to learn and eager to try something new. If we see things we don’t understand, we ask about them, and we learn. If we have a great new idea, we explore it and we drive others to do the same. We take an avid interest in what we do. All of us help foster innovation by taking initiative on new projects and endeavors, and it is this freedom of imagination that allows us to come up with new, exciting ways to evolve.
We are active participants in each other’s learning and continuously challenge each other to perform better. We want to work in an environment that’s enthusiastic, collaborative, and filled with the creative exchange of ideas. We seek good advice even when it’s not needed and give good feedback even when it is not wanted. We’re all pursuing the same purpose, so we check our egos at the door. We are proactive when we notice an opportunity for change and collaborate with each other to make that change happen.
In order to keep growing as individuals and as an organization, we continuously assess our performance and make improvements. Whether it’s grades, surveys, performance reviews, business analytics, or web trends; every piece of information we collect and analyze is used to create a sustainable organization that will have an enduring impact on the lives of students. No project is ever truly complete, no education is ever really over, and our job is never done.
When you’re attempting to do something remarkable, even your failures should be celebrated. We don’t fear failure. Being innovators means taking risks, and chances are we’re not going to get it perfect the first time. But failure isn’t a sign of weakness; it’s a sign of progress. We see failure as an opportunity to learn what doesn’t work so we’re one step closer to finding out what will. If we’re not making mistakes then we’re not trying hard enough. The only real failure would be if we were to let our uncertainties cause us to stop trying to do new and exciting things.
Fun is what happens when passionate people get together to do something they love. We work diligently, laugh openly, and celebrate our successes. We enjoy being part of a highly-motivated team and we bring the best of who we are to our mission.
