We connect hard-working families with expert Navigators who provide personalized support along the path from preschool to college.

Personal, Professional Guidance

Our Navigators combine expert knowledge of schools with a deep understanding of our communities. Most are accomplished former teachers, school leaders, or counselors, and all have passed a background check, received privacy training and adhere to a strict code of confidentiality. 

They’re like pediatricians for your educational health, and they’re always ready to answer questions, troubleshoot problems, and get things done. In a recent survey, 95 percent of EdNavigator members said that their Navigator is "the person I trust most for information and advice about education issues." 

Help that Finds You

Your Navigator will meet with you at your workplace—or wherever is most convenient for you—to develop a customized educational plan. They’ll help: 

  • Set clear learning goals
  • Choose the right school and explore financial options
  • Communicate with teachers and administrators
  • Analyze grades and progress
  • Answer your questions via phone, text, or email whenever you need advice

A little help
can make a big
difference.

A private tutoring company said it would take thousands of dollars of sessions to get their son back on track in reading. Our Navigators had a different idea.

Our Approach

1

Sign up

You can register to become an EdNavigator member through your employer, a participating community organization, or our website. Members can receive help with their child’s education or with their own learning goals.
2

Review records

After registering, you’ll be connected to your Navigator. If you’re a parent, we’ll start by carefully reviewing your child’s academic records. If you’re an adult learner, we’ll talk about where you are and where you want to go.
3

Make a plan

Your Navigator will help you set clear short- and long-term goals, from getting your child into college to helping you get a degree while balancing work and life. Then together, we’ll create a concrete plan for achieving those goals.
4

Take action

Your Navigator will offer direct, hands-on assistance to help you turn your plans into reality—which may include going with you to school meetings, coaching a child on effective study habits, or connecting you to available community resources.
