School Navigators

Read about how our School Navigators can assist you in finding a school in St. Louis.


A Helpful Guide

Searching for your child’s ideal school can be an intimidating process. However, you don’t have to balance all of it by yourself. Our network of specially trained and local School Navigators can answer questions, provide resources, and support you throughout the entire process. 

What Do School Navigators Do?

Navigators act as advisors, making sure that all doubt is removed from the school search process and that you are as informed as possible. 

Here are just a few things our Navigators can do for you:

  • Answer questions about schools in your area and all across St. Louis
  • Walk through information from our School Search Tool 
  • Help determine what’s important to you and your child in a school
  • Help you discover new data about possible choices
  • Prepare you for school visits and interviews
  • Provide support in the application and/or enrollment process
  • Connect you with quality resources for your child’s specific needs

Who are School Navigators?

School Navigators are staff members dedicated to providing St. Louis parents with all the guidance they need to make the best decision for their families.

Navigators are:

Why Use a Navigator?

As a prospective or current parent, balancing in-depth school research with daily life can be a headache.
