We’re a nonprofit organization that helps busy families and students achieve their educational dreams.

Who are we?

We’re teachers. We’re principals. We’re counselors and coaches. We’re policy experts and data analysts and community leaders. Most of all, we’re moms and dads who know how hard it can be to figure out schools and keep kids on track, no matter who you are or where you live.

Our Mission

Our mission is to empower every family in the United States with access to affordable, high-quality, on-demand support along the path to a great education, from before preschool to college and beyond.

Our Operating Principles

You always come first

We always put the needs of families and students first. We represent no one’s interests but yours. Ever.

We put you in charge

We provide guidance and honest advice, but you set the course. We never act without your permission or make choices for you. Our job is to help you get what you want.

We treat you like family

We share your sense of urgency. We respond quickly, take your concerns seriously, and always treat you with dignity and respect. Your problems are our problems.

We find a way

We don’t let systems, processes, paperwork or unwritten rules get in the way of doing right by a family or student. We find a way to make it happen.

We protect your privacy

We maintain best-in-class privacy controls to protect you. We never share information about you or your children without your consent.

We level the playing field

We champion the right of all families to an excellent education, especially those who have faced disadvantages in the past.

Your guide to a great education

We founded EdNavigator because we believe that education is the path to a better life. But navigating schools and education systems isn’t easy. The stakes are high, and there are so many questions, deadlines, and decisions along the way. That’s why we’re here—so you don’t have to do it all alone.
