About Educational Partners International
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 North Carolina, South Carolina, Virginia, and Florida.
EPI is owned and operated by career educators with a combined experience of more than 30 years in international teacher recruitment, placement, and support. We understand the importance of teacher quality and its impact on student performance, especially in these times of high accountability.
EPI strengthens K-12 education by discovering and empowering the world's best international teachers to facilitate authentic cultural exchange. The results include teachers and students that become lifelong learners, embrace 21st century skills, and serve as change agents in an interconnected world of global understanding.
EPI teachers inspire the best from students, schools, and communities. That's because we only recruit the best of the best. All our processes--from initial contact to ongoing support after teachers arrive in the US to our work with schools and districts--are evaluated and refined continuously to maintain the highest level of excellence.
Authentic Cultural Exchange
When students and teachers learn to value their life differences as deeply as life similarities, interacting, living, and thriving with those who are different from us becomes the norm. 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.
EPI works to develop a transformative experience for students, teachers, and communities, enabling time spent in the EPI program to be especially influential in their lives. As a company, we shape what's next - from the surrounding community to the rest of the world. EPI empowers a new community of thinkers, creators, and global citizens - preparing 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 young people's lives and their future, so it's critical that we are open and honest with our teachers, schools, districts and other stakeholders each day. Every individual is treated with integrity, thoughtful care and compassion throughout the EPI process.
