In 1998, several graduate students in the behavior analysis program at the University of Nevada, Reno founded Fit Learning in a broom closet. Originally, Center for Advanced Learning, its founders were committed to applying behavioral and learning science for the transformation of mainstream, academic difficulties. As a self-capitalized graduate program, the behavior analysis department at the University of Nevada supported its students in pursuing entrepreneurial endeavors that would allow them to develop their clinical skills and provide much needed services to children in the community.
By 2003, the success of that very small program (we aren’t kidding when we say it began in a broom closet!) led to its privatization as a large, bustling learning lab in Reno, Nevada. Since that time, the use of precise progress monitoring systems in combination with the principles of learning science have led to profoundly important discoveries being made about how to rapidly accelerate and transform the learning abilities of any type of learner.
In 2010, Center for Advanced Learning was rebranded as Fit Learning and has grown to include learning laboratories in Locust Valley, New York; Upper East Side, Manhattan; Medford, Oregon; Phoenix, Arizona, and Perth, Western Australia – with up and coming labs opening in Naperville, Illinois, San Jose, California; and Atlanta, Georgia. The growth and success of our organization has occurred as a result of word of mouth alone. Our commitment to our core values of impeccability, integrity, science, accountability, love, and fun shine through at every location and from every team member. We are all joined together inside our noble cause of transforming every child who walks through our doors – regardless of age, disability, challenge, or label – such that they acquire the kinds of cognitive and academic skills that will enable them to go forward and make a difference in their own lives. Every team member at every location works tirelessly in service of this noble cause and stands inside of creating limitless possibilities for every learner. We are honored to have the privilege of impacting the lives of children and families in such profound ways and will continue to work tirelessly to improve and evolve our methods such that even more transformative gains can be made with every learner.
