The Support Our Students Need
Low-income and minority students – and others from challenging backgrounds – often need ongoing training, encouragement, and intervention to address the most common root causes that prevent educational success.
ecoEDI gives our students the supplemental guidance that is often missing from their everyday lives. With our program, those with a commitment and desire to succeed no longer slip through the cracks.
To provide a strong and consistent foundation for each student’s education path, every program is guided by ecoEDI’s 4 Pillars of Student Success.
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.
Without this foundation, the structure of a student’s education path is inherently at risk.
Many students lack role models for important basic skills for educational, career and life success. Through a combination of self-paced online courses and virtual group coaching, we give each ecoEDI student a strong foundation.
Students also have access to a vast online library of information, so they can always find guidance from a trustworthy source.

Whether the right post-secondary education path is a trade school, a four-year degree or an alternative college, we help our students minimize wasted time, money or effort.
For education to be a worthwhile investment, students must be able to identify the subjects that will lead to gainful employment and a successful career, that match their skills and passions, and that will allow them to complete their education in an affordable and timely fashion.
