We are advocates first. As such, our evaluators believe that our work creates a graduation pathway for international students leading to high school completion and post-secondary college and career opportunities.
Our unique, but necessary experience as teachers, school counselors, or administrators equips our evaluators to provide individualized international transcript evaluations, resources, and training opportunities that are real-world focused, yet practical. Our foreign transcript evaluation framework operates within the parameters of federal and state laws and local board policies, which has allowed the school districts we serve to avoid costly legal expenses.
As leaders in this field, we are often invited presenters at international, national, and state-level conventions each year. Our experiences have lead us to evaluate thousands of international documents across six continents and from over 126 countries.
International Transcript Evaluations
I. Document-by-Document Evaluation:
Purpose: Determine if a student completed high
school outside the United States.
Purpose: Determine the last grade completed.
Most often used to determine if a foreign
transcript represents the equivalent of middle
school or high school in the United States.
II. Course-by-Course Evaluation:

foreign school document (e.g., transcript or exam).
