Do you have a future-ready, deeper learning vision for every student? Battelle for Kids helps innovative leaders take the first step to create their community’s Portrait of a Graduate. Locally developed and globally positioned, the Portrait of a Graduate serves as a North Star for system transformation.
The first step in transforming your school system is establishing a shared vision of future-ready, deeper learning for every student – your Portrait of a Graduate.
Locally developed and globally positioned, a school system’s Portrait of a Graduate is developed with the community to identify the skills, dispositions, and competencies students need for success in this rapidly changing, complex world.View Our Portrait Gallery
Our process starts with FuturesCoLab – a community engagement tool specifically designed to facilitate collaborative, unifying conversations about your vision, the Portrait of a Graduate.

We help you identify your shared aspirations as you engage with your community to consider these important questions:
What are the hopes, dreams, and aspirations that our community has for its students?
What are the skills and mindsets our children need for success in this rapidly changing, complex world?
What are the implications for the design of the learning experiences – and equitable access to those experiences – we provide in our school systems?
Our Portrait of a Graduate design process engages the education system and the broader community – educators, students, elected officials, partners, community members, families, and more – to help you build a unifying, collective vision for your students. Bringing together these diverse perspectives is essential for enduring educational transformation.
Our team of experienced facilitators leverages interactive engagement tools to capture diverse perspectives and support system leaders as they engage alongside community members in meaningful discussions. We have supported hundreds of school districts across the country in designing their locally developed Portrait of a Graduate in both virtual and in-person engagements.
