LEARN MORE ABOUT OUR HISTORY. IT JUST MIGHT INSPIRE YOU TO HELP US BUILD A BETTER FUTURE.

  • Founded by Wanda Durant (aka the Real MVP or Mama Durant) who saw a need for a future ready early education model and that automation had raised the premium on higher-order cognitive skills in advanced and emerging economies. Mama Durant realized that the role of family and especially fathers was missing in early education and that it was critical to design a model that enables full engagement. The framework is designed to foster:

    • Advanced cognitive skills such as complex problem-solving, 
    • Sociobehavioral skills such as teamwork. Jobs that rely on interpersonal interaction will not be readily replaced by machines. However, to succeed at these jobs, sociobehavioral skills—acquired in one’s early years and shaped throughout one’s lifetime—must be strong. Human capital is important because there is now a higher premium on adaptability.
    • Skill combinations that are predictive of adaptability such as reasoning and self-efficacy. 

    The Wanda Durant Real MVP Charity Foundation in partnership with Global Moonshots in Education and InventXR Education Foundation created the Saturday Achiever’s Academy which opened its doors on October 5th, 2019 in Fort Washington, Maryland.

     

  • Mission

    To create an integrated system of supports and partnerships towards a personalized, seamless, and holistic experience for each child and family. Saturday Achiever’s Academy shall guide, support, and inspire a learning community that will break the cycle of poverty and violence for the highest-need children by providing them with an educational foundation focused on their specific needs and protected from influences and forces that detract from that focus.This integrated system works together towards a common set of outcomes for children across academic, health, and socio-emotional domains with a focus on STEM. In order to make the curriculum accessible in any school, the Wanda Durant Real MVP Charity Foundation has a strategic partner in Silicon Valley who has developed our Learning Management System iStudyXR which is being used for curriculum, instruction design, assessment and communication. The iStudyXR solution amplifies our mission to help students in K-2 accomplish the common core state standard requirements.
