About Prodigy Education
We started life in 2011 as an undergraduate project. Today, our educational games are loved by millions of students, parents and teachers across the world — and we're just getting started. Find out how Prodigy’s approach to fun, digital game-based learning means kids no longer have to choose between homework and playtime.
Our mission is to help every student in the world love learning
Prodigy harnesses the power of game-based learning
“Before Prodigy, we wondered why math practice couldn’t be as fun and engaging as a video game. We discovered that it could be by putting Motivation First!
Our innovative approach to game-based learning propelled Prodigy Math to become one of the most popular tools in North American classrooms. Millions of students use Prodigy to practice curriculum-aligned math skills — all while playing a game they love. We’ve also built tools for educators and parents to support their students' learning journeys and motivate them.
We believe access to education is a human right and online learning should be a fun and safe experience. Because when you love what you do, you do it better.”
Alex Peters & Rohan Mahimker, Co-Founders & Co-CEOs
See how we're accomplishing our mission
Prodigy Math is one of North America's most popular classroom tools. This is what educators have to say:
"What’s interesting is how much it's been used outside of school, not just inside the confines of the classroom... It's the students who want to do it. It's a motivating factor that the students love it."
Math Specialist - Floyd County, GA
"Often our students aren’t as confident in math. I’m happy that through the use of Prodigy and the support of teachers, confidence is increasing."
Principal - Clayton, GA
"Prodigy translates to a love of math. We’re using it because it’s adaptive, and students are working at their level in their zone of proximal development."
Supervisor of Mathematics - Clifton, NJ
