Our Mission


To ensure every student is reading on or above grade level.

Built and run by education activists, American Reading Company is a trusted partner of 5,320 schools and 1,070 districts in 50 states. Our team helps strengthen district and school capacity at every level by placing literacy and agency at the heart of school transformation, through:

  • Thematic Inquiry Core Curriculum
  • K-12 Reading Instruction & Assessment
  • Teacher & Leader Learning
  • Expertly Curated Classroom Libraries

As a result, all students read, write, discuss, think, investigate, and solve problems at ever-increasing levels of proficiency. Their academic performance is accelerated and their life prospects are fundamentally improved.

Core Value:

Our strength is in our diversity.

American Reading Company is a diverse, mission-driven, woman-owned business based in King of Prussia, Pennsylvania. We practice the same continuous improvement model that we teach schools. ARC delivers what it promises, on time, and beyond our clients' expectations.

We are a triple bottom line company: People, Planet, Profit.

With a staff of more than 200, our minimum wage for full timers is $15 an hour and 10% of company profits are distributed out to the team. There is an on-site staff nursery, which is a Spanish-speaking only environment to promote bilingualism. And as of June 2016 our offices are fully solar powered.

Our office dress code: Wear your VITAL ENERGY to work every day.

"Learning is vital energy seeking opportunity for effective exercise." John Dewey, Democracy and Education
