School Yourself Acquired by Amplify

School Yourself, a leading provider of online math lessons and author of two courses on edX.org (Introduction to Algebra and Introduction to Geometry) and an XBlock, has been acquired this month by Amplify for an undisclosed amount.

School Yourself CEO Zach Wissner-Gross and his team at the company will join Amplify and continue building learning solutions in hard sciences, game design and adaptive learning.

The current School Yourself content, which includes more than 250 interactive math lessons, will remain freely available at schoolyourself.org and via edX.org.

Founded in 2012, School Yourself got five grants since it was created, according to Crunchbase: $5K on April 2012, $10K on June 2012, $25K on November 2012, an undisclosed amount on September 2014 and $250K on February 2015.

“Our mission has always been to improve education through innovation,” said School Yourself CEO Zach Wissner-Gross. “By joining with Amplify, we’ll be able to continue that mission, while continuing to support active users of schoolyourself.org.”
