5 Genesis Education Themes For Schools + Universities (In StudioPress’ Genesis Pro)

Genesis education themes

These WordPress education theme are all built in the Genesis Framework.

All themes are mobile responsive + HTML5 and you’ll find setup instructions, pricing, and other helpful resources in each theme description. I recommend using StudioPress’ tutorials and Genesis Plugins, since most demos showcase many plugins you can find on StudioPress.

There’s only a couple Genesis education themes out there – but you can always swap content on another theme and replace it with yours – that’s the whole point of a template. If you buy Education Pro from StudioPress then the Genesis Framework is included with your purchase ($99.95). For all other education themes, you’ll need to purchase Genesis separately for $59.95. Here are theme installation instructions once you’ve picked a theme.

  1. Hey Tom. Thank you so much for this! 4 out of 5 are our themes!

    A note on that, we (9seeds) are now the owners of all formerly Web Savvy Marketing themes. While there are redirects from WSM to 9seeds, it’d be great if you could update the references and links to point at 9seeds.com. We are supporting and maintaining all existing themes, as well as soon to be releasing new themes as well!

    Relevant to the themes mentioned here, we’re also working on adding LifterLMS support to most these. We’ll still be supporting LearnDash, but LifterLMS is a great freemium option for people just starting out and trying to keep initial cost down.
