Renaissance has accomplished numerous milestones throughout our nearly 40-year history. What began as a local company in central Wisconsin, USA has now become a global leader in education, with a strong presence in the UK and Ireland. We are excited to unveil our new brand identity, which both embraces our history and mission to accelerate learning for all, while also embracing a forward-looking approach to the future.
Our fresh identity encapsulates Renaissance as it stands today, introducing our integrated solutions that prioritise a teacher-centered ecosystem and showcase how the right technology can empower educators to truly understand and see every student. The revamped brand emphasises this vision through its modern appearance, vibrant colors, and captivating imagery, all of which symbolise the transformative changes that have occurred at Renaissance in recent years.
In the past, you may have known us as “the Accelerated Reader company,” “the Star company,” or even “the myON company.” However, our new identity reflects how Renaissance has evolved into a trusted and dependable partner, offering a comprehensive suite of digital solutions to unlock personalized teaching and enhance student outcomes.
It’s not just the brand that is evolving; our tools and platform are also undergoing changes to bring our solutions together. As our solutions transition to the Renaissance Growth Platform this summer, you can anticipate seamless interoperability, an updated and refreshed user experience, all within a reliable, secure, and enhanced infrastructure. Stay tuned for information about your school’s upgrade.
At Renaissance, we firmly believe in the magic of teaching and envision a future where every student reaches their full potential. We also believe that teachers should always have the necessary resources to excel at what they do best—teach.
We invite you to explore our new US website to learn more about our transformation, and we look forward to embarking on a journey with you over the coming months as we delve deeper into how Renaissance can enable you to truly and fully understand every student.
