Concepts for Adaptive Learning (CfAL) is an independent, non-profit organization, based in New Haven, Connecticut that has been serving urban communities since 2003, by providing educational technology services to residents.  CfAL exists to improve the academic achievement and learning outcomes of disadvantaged children and help working families build technology skills to help improve financial stability.  We strive to achieve this goal by eliminating the technology gap between those that have – and do not have – technology in the home…one household at a time.

Our organization is unique in that CfAL uses the resources of technology to educate students, parents,  and adults, as its foundation for improving learning outcomes.

Since 2003, some of our accomplishments include having:

  • Instructed nearly 90 teachers in the use of technology
  • Given computer training and computers to more than 4,000 parents, living in the poorest neighborhoods of Bridgeport, Hamden, Hartford, Meriden, New Haven and Waterbury
  • Delivered a summer math program for underperforming 3rd thru 5th grade students
  • On behalf of the Connecticut Commission for Educational Technology, we have delivered training and computers to more than 4,000 families living in Bridgeport, Hartford, New Haven and Waterbury

CfAL has established a reputation of helping close the “digital divide” and improving public school children’s education.

Please know that we give our educational technology services through the support and generous donations from foundations, businesses, individuals and volunteers, and fundraiser events.
