Tampa, FL – AAA Scholarship Foundation today announced the launch of its first-generation Private School Navigator (www.privateschoolnavigator.org).
“We listened to our stakeholders who voiced a strong interest in making sure that families have the opportunity and information they need to make informed choices about the educational-settings that best fit their children’s learning needs. One way we knew we could meet their expectations was by creating a roadmap to help parents navigate the process of selecting and applying to schools,” said Kim Dyson, president and CEO of AAA Scholarship Foundation.
In order to make the Private School Navigator as effective as possible, AAA sought out subject-matter expert, Andrew Campanella, the author of the award-winning book, The School Choice Roadmap: 7 Steps to Finding the Right School for Your Child and president of National School Choice Week, to help develop the resources that will provide scholarship families with practical tools and information on evaluating schools that best meet the needs of their children. Andrew, a strong proponent of all types of school choice, is providing these efforts in his personal capacity and on a volunteer basis.
“Every child deserves an excellent education, and parents know their children best,” Campanella said. “I am grateful to partner with AAA Scholarship Foundation to provide practical, jargon-free school search information so that all families can find learning environments where their children will learn, succeed, feel welcomed, and be happy.”
Over the next few weeks and months, the Private School Navigator will grow and become even more effective with the addition of the following resources:
–an abridged and easily-digestible handbook based on Andrew’s the award-winning book, The School Choice Roadmap: 7 Steps to Finding the Right School for Your Child
–a “Quick Reference Guide” in English and Spanish that families can carry with them to school visits
–additional short and informative videos for families as they continue their school selection journey
–information about upcoming Private School Navigator information sessions and webinars
“We hope everyone is as excited as we are about this progress and we look forward to continuing to help underserved families who are seeking quality educational options for their children,” Dyson said.
