About Plato Learning

Getting kids to love reading can take Herculean effort. We’ve been laboring (happily) since 2010.



WE ARE ON A QUEST…

…to reinvigorate reading education. Our programs blend literacy, imaginative play and design thinking to increase reading interest and skill. Creation stories along with tales of conquest and cultural tradition provide the context for our after-school and summer camp engagements where we journey through story to help children understand themselves, our history and our world.





THEY CALLED.
WE ANSWERED.

Our story began with, well, a story. Challenged by fans of The Percy Jackson and the Olympians book series, we set out to create a real-world version of the fictional training ground for modern-day heroes of Greek Mythology; Camp Half-Blood. Armed with no small amount of courage we set out to create a space for the stories kids love to live rich, full lives beyond the pages of the books. Eight years and three programs later we have served nearly 3,000 children with our unique brand of reading enrichment.





EXPANDING THE BOUNDARIES

Expanding the boundaries of the creative class is an important part of our mission and must include kids from the widest variety of families and circumstances. Our latest project, The Daedalus Initiative gifts students in Title 1 schools with science kits and other materials to further their knowledge and interest in STEM.
