Cushing Awarded Grant from E.E. Ford Foundation

We are pleased to report that Cushing Academy has received a $50,000 matching grant from the E.E. Ford Foundation.
The purpose of the grant is to fund additional interactive iClass learning environments in a variety of disciplines, facilitating the acquisition of component materials, teacher training, and supporting the development of curriculum and program content that will be widely and freely shared with other independent schools nationwide. The iClass Table, which was developed at Cushing last fall by Dr. Grant Geske, is currently in use in chemistry classes. We look forward to expanding this technology across the disciplines and sharing this model with other institutions. To learn more about the iClass Table, please click here.
