1776-based CommonLit, a nonprofit that provides Common Core-aligned educational texts for students, has been accepted into the 2016 class of AT&T’s Aspire Accelerator.

CommonLit joins five other edtech startups in the current cohort, which officially kicked off on Monday in San Francisco. The nonprofit will get $100,000 in investment from AT&T, mentoring and a national network out of the program and, per the terms of the accelerator, is free to stay rooted in D.C.

CommonLit, which has the ultimate goal of improving nationwide literacy, is the second D.C.-area startup to participate in Aspire. Educational video-making tool PlayPosit (formerly eduCanon) was part of the program in 2015.
