Array Global Educational Services Inc. is a United States registered nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization. The directors of Array Global have over 100 years of experience in education and over 50 years of those working with all types of institutions throughout the world. Further, the directors have worked with various accreditation bodies, consulted with schools throughout the world and have provided professional development.
We are excited to share with you and your teachers, students, and parents our collective experience and knowledge. We strongly believe that our mission statement defines who we are and what we do:
“Partnering with institutions in their improvement efforts to ensure students are prepared for a global society.”
Our focus and goal is to help all institutions improve and we believe that when institutions improve, communities improve, and when communities improve our world improves. We are focused on ensuring all students have a quality education so they can in turn improve the world.
We work with institutions and institutional leaders as partners. We believe that we all desire the same thing--the best schools possible. We want to partner with all institutions and institutional leaders as colleagues.
We work with many categories of schools--K-12, primary, middle, high, international, national, distance-based, and non-degree granting post-secondary vocational/career programs that want to improve their institutions. We work with and accredit institutions in several countries including the United States.
We strongly believe that real school improvement is best demonstrated by whether or not the students are learning and growing, in both academic and character development.
We believe that we should expand the definition of "students" to go beyond the ones who sit in our classrooms and include ourselves, as we all must be constantly learning. We are all students--we learn from each other. It is only when we realize that learning never stops for any of us that we can truly inspire the students in classrooms to treasure the value of learning.
Our world has recently been made tragically aware that we really do need to understand each other and work together to make a better world. Opening our eyes and the eyes of our students about the world in which we live--with its tragedies, successes, and various cultural norms, will help us all become more open and accepting of everyone.
