BellXcel exists to transform the academic achievements, self-confidence, and life trajectories of children living in under-resourced communities. To accomplish this mission, we partner with school districts and community-based organizations to deliver high-quality, evidence-based learning experiences, professional development, and consulting. Our vision will be realized when all children are able to achieve their fullest academic potential, regardless of socioeconomic challenges. To foster a love of learning and culture of high expectations, BellXcel recognizes students in our summer and afterschool programs as "scholars." With support from national and local philanthropy, all BellXcel programs are offered at no cost to families.
Since our founding, BellXcel learning solutions have reached nearly 200,000 scholars and empowered more than 10,000 educators to deliver 20 million hours of expanded learning time to students across the nation.
Over the past five years, BellXcel has successfully transformed from a direct-service program provider to a nimble, technology-centered nonprofit partnering with schools, school districts and youth-serving organizations in communities of all sizes. Shifting to licensing our curriculum, services and resources to local partners has allowed BellXcel to increase scholar volume by 58% while reducing expenses by 26%. We are now poised for the next phase of our evolution through the development of a SaaS+ enterprise solution which will allow communities to access BellXcel programs at a lower price point; design and deliver programs that meet each community's specific needs and goals; automate processes to increase efficiency and raise the quality of programs; and serve exponentially more children who desperately need academic intervention and social-emotional support so they can be successful in school and beyond.
BellXcel is headquartered in Massachusetts but operates as a virtual organization, with most of our ~50 team members working from home offices. Prior to 2018, the organization was known as BELL, Building Educated Leaders for Life.
