Educational Partners International, LLC (EPI) is an Exchange Visitor Program. We are authorized to sponsor teachers for placements (K-12) in public, private, and charter schools in the US.

EPI strengthens K-12 education by discovering and empowering the world’s best international teachers to share authentic cultural understanding in the US classroom. The exchange of ideas across cultures enables teachers and students to become lifelong learners and contributors in an interconnected world.

Our Values

Authentic Cultural Exchange
When students and teachers learn to value their life differences as deeply as life similarities, interacting, living, and thriving with those different from us becomes the norm, and peace reigns. That’s why, from teacher selection and placement to school district collaboration to EPI’s impact on the world, we consistently strive to achieve the highest standards of authentic cultural exchange to create a global world of understanding.

EPI recruits and selects only the best of the best teachers to inspire students, schools, and communities to reach for excellence. All our processes, from initial contact to post-arrival support to working with our schools and districts, are evaluated and refined continuously to maintain the highest level of excellence.

EPI works to develop a transformative experience for students, teachers, and communities, enabling time spent in the EPI program to be incredibly influential in their lives. EPI empowers a new community of thinkers, creators, and global citizens, which prepares teachers and students to make a tangible, positive difference wherever they go. 

EPI respects and nurtures our employees, teachers, schools, and districts. We reward and encourage employees and focus on work-life balance. We support teachers through professional development, coaching, and research-based resources. We support schools and districts by consistently providing qualified teachers focused on authentic cultural exchange. 

We impact people’s lives and futures, so we must be open and honest with our teachers, schools, districts, and other stakeholders daily. Everyone is treated with integrity, thoughtful care, and compassion throughout the EPI process.

The EPI team deals with matters concerning teachers swiftly, effectively and with noteworthy professionalism. I have always been impressed by the level of proficiency each member of the EPI team gives to teachers from the initial contact through to placement. I am very impressed with the service received from EPI and I would have no hesitation in recommending the organization, Educational Partners International.
