Program Description

Achieve3000 offers digital, supplemental literacy programs for grades 2-12 and includes differentiated content to build student fluency, vocabulary, comprehension, and writing across content areas. The student instructional routine is designed to build key literacy capacities and college and career level critical thinking skills. Achieve3000 has three different program options for students, depending on their grade level. Students in grades PreK-2 use Smarty Ants. In grades 2–5, students use KidBiz3000. Students in grades 6–8, use TeenBiz3000, and those in grades 9–12 use Empower3000.

Program Outcomes

A study involving suburban and urban districts across the U.S. compared students who used Achieve3000 and those who did not. The study found significant positive effects for the combined sample of sixth graders (effect size =+0.22) and ninth graders (effect size = +0.44) for a weighted average of +0.29 on Total Reading Scores. This qualifies Achieve3000 for the ESSA “Strong” category.

Professional Development/Training

Achieve3000 works with each customer to develop a  plan that identifies the targeted students and outlines professional development and implementation services.


Achieve3000 requires student individual use of a laptop, workstation, Chromebook, or mobile device (such as a tablet) for each lesson. You do not have to install the Achieve3000 program itself on the device. However, we do offer apps for Windows, Macs, Chromebooks, iPads, and Android mobile devices for students to use Achieve3000 away from school.
