Will Outside The Classroom keep its name?
Yes. Outside The Classroom will retain its name, but moving forward, we will also be known as “An EverFi Company.”

No. Our offices will remain here in Needham, MA, and our Founder, Brandon Busteed, will be heading up the Higher Education division of EverFi.
