Our Story

Team Excel started as a program under the Excel to Excellence nonprofit organization in 2014. After years of remarkable outcomes to include a 27% increase in GPA for the initial student cohort, Team Excel transitioned to an independent entity in order to focus on scaling the model to support schools, universities, and nonprofits around the world.

We have rebranded, retooled, and are ready to serve!


How does it work?

Team Excel gamifies student success metrics to turn learning and personal development into a fun and healthy competition. Through the platform, student teams earn points and compete based on metrics such as academics, attendance, community service and more. 

For maximum impact, the competition is supported by a life skills curriculum and mentoring support.
