Our Story

For nearly 100 years, the traditional school systems have become less and less educational, and more and more destructive of true growth, knowledge, and success. The school system has erased learning in exchange for rote memorization and testing of the teacher's ability to teach, not the student's ability to learn. They have replaced the love of exploration, curiosity, and individual growth with a one size fits all model for success which leaves the majority of students overwhelmed and seen as behind. That means every generation alive today, especially our kids, have been raised in an ever more failing, cyclical system with broken and outdated ideas around learning, growth, and success.  

That's why the founder of Skilled Institute and creator of the SKILLED curriculum,  Legit SaraJane did all of this.  The Skilled Institute is a revolutionary education platform dedicated to helping teens and tweens all over America to learn, grow, and share based on who they were created to be and to become. 

SKILLED aims to change the way teens learn. To make it fun again, interesting again, and MEANINGFUL again. To learn all the skills we need at every age to THRIVE in life confidently. 

The Skilled Institute uses the SKILLED curriculum as a Private Umbrella School for home-based-education students aged 11-18. We manage all the record-keeping, reporting, and high school graduation requirements so parents don't have to.


Including App based access to proprietary courses which are offered Online to cover a full range of curricula. Students meet graduation requirements by learning the most important life skills needed for teens to thrive today and well into adulthood.

You don’t have to have to be a math wiz to be great at learning. 

SKILLED curriculum was intentionally designed by and for people who struggled with traditional school models. Learning doesn't have to be hours behind a desk or screen, difficult, OR BORING anymore. We offer video lessons, & resources to learn while keeping it entertaining and focused on how each student learns best. 

Based on an unschooling method, students learn at their own pace, following the interests and needs of their day within a proprietary framework of intentionally developed courses.
