Our Mission

We seek students that are diligent, eager and hungry for knowledge, those that care and want to learn. We provide scholarships for students to be able to access the best programs and educators from the US and around the world. Many students cannot maximize their high potential due to their economic background or demographic location. Thus, we strive to detect potential and provide support for its realization. When we see internal motivation, we react and want to empower.

Charter School Initiative: is partnering with The Compass School from Universal Education to open several non-profit charter schools in different states in the US. The Compass School is a virtual school with a very unique program that provides 100% live online courses to students, see below for additional information on the organization.

About The Compass School:

The Compass School is the K12 division of Universal Education. Universal Education is an institution committed to improving access to high-quality education for students, teachers, and professionals around the world. All of our courses are taught in a synchronous remote format.

We utilize leading education pedagogy and technology from the United States and abroad to provide premium courses and academic support services to students and institutions. Through the integration of accredited courses and institutional relations, Universal Education is able to work with students over long periods to highlight their true capacity and bring forward well-rounded, bright, enthusiastic learners.

Education exists in many forms, and at The Compass School, we are shaping its future. We offer families virtual learning opportunities at a first-class educational institution that is an alternative to the traditional school building, school day, and school setting. We believe that The Compass School can offer more benefits to students: more options in course offerings, more freedom in daily schedule and living, more personalized attention to individual needs, and more flexibility for parents and students to find their own academic path to success.

Our courses are managed through our proprietary learning management system, UE+, which has a variety of features necessary for delivering remote synchronous classes including messaging, managing class files, grading and much more! The live class component is taught through Zoom which is integrated directly into our LMS.
