Our Story

When Colin, Evan, and Jack first met, they formed an instant friendship. However, because Colin is Deaf and uses American Sign Language, the trio had to communicate through written messages. Frustrated with the impersonal and inefficient nature of written communication as well as the difficulty of learning ASL online, the friends teamed up to found SignSchool as a user-friendly online platform for learning ASL. Using a modular curriculum of video lessons and interactive exercises, SignSchool aims to promote ASL learning in the hearing community to improve everyday communication accessibility between the Deaf and hearing.
