Online Programs

Project Zero Online Courses are 13-week long, research-based courses grounded in day-to-day teaching and leadership practice. Educators form teams of 3-6 with colleagues from their organizations to participate. You will apply what you learn as you learn, receiving personalized feedback from a team coach and from fellow participants. Each course promotes active, team-based learning that supports collaboration and sharing in schools and districts.

Scholarships are available for educators working in schools that serve 35% or more students in low-income families. Most scholarships cover between 50% and 80% of the tuition. You can learn more about scholarship opportunities here.
