Edu-Tech Academic Solutions

Edu-Tech is a unique concept in educational technology support and management. We focus solely on independent schools and consider ourselves an educational services company focused on technology solutions, not a technology sales, support, or consulting company. Many technology service organizations provide support with a “break-fix” mentality. They rush in, make repairs and move on to the next customer. Through years of experience, we have found that this is not the best solution for effective support in an educational environment. As a result, we have built our organization around an entirely new model. It is a design that provides our customers with trained technicians and seasoned educators that have the technical ability, teaching experience, and communication skills to work closely with teachers, staff and students in an independent school environment. Our strategy has and always will remain consistent with our company philosophy, “Empowering Independent Schools.”
