In addition to lowering the cost of post-secondary education by more than 60%, our program addresses the most common root causes that keep socially and economically disadvantaged students from successfully completing their education.

ecoEDI’s 4 Pillars of Student Success
In each of our programs, these four pillars work together to establish a firm and consistent foundation from which students can achieve their goals.
Each ecoEDI Student Receives:
Through an innovative and agile approach, we create synergy and partnerships with a variety of affordable education institutions. Our students can complete quality college-level, credit-earning courses at little to no cost, thus reducing the cost of a college education by more than 60%.
Individualized Education Planning
Right from the start, our professionals help each student make a realistic, individual education plan and match them with their best options.
1-on-1 Mentor Relationships
By pairing each student with a mentor/coach committed to seeing them through their education experience, we help students follow through on their education plan, even in the midst of challenging circumstances.
Virtual Group Coaching
Online learning is a great way to work with a student’s schedule, but online learning does not mean you have to learn alone. ecoEDI’s virtual group coaching program allows students to support one another throughout their educations. Students also have access to live and recorded webinars with course mentors for added support.
Opportunities With Our Partners
Our strategic partners are part of the foundation of an ecoEDI education. They help us match qualifying students with scholarships, sponsorship opportunities, career-focused job shadowing, apprenticeships, industry mentors, internships, and externships. Our partners include corporate work-placement sponsors, local small-business communities, universities, trade schools, non-traditional higher education institutions, and others.
Practical Skills Classes
Through classes specifically designed for their realities, we teach students about personal finance and budgeting, time management, priority management, goal follow-through, enhanced study skills, effective self-promotion, planning for a career transition, making the best impression in a job interview, social media success in the job market, and more.
