“Overcoming challenges and celebrating successes, we’ve managed to enroll over 4,000 students in online and in-person programs across educational institutions worldwide,” shared Alexander Zheltov, founder and CEO of Educate Online.

“Our mission, though simple in concept, entails navigating a complex landscape. When I established Educate Online in the US in 2018, the goal was straightforward: to deliver high-quality education to every child, regardless of location,” Zheltov explained. “Our age-specific solutions give us a competitive edge. The study-abroad requirements for a 10-year-old differ greatly from those of a 20-year-old.”

“For instance, we offer a Dual Diploma program tailored for students aged 14-19. This initiative provides online education from schools in the US, UK, and Canada. Students can integrate their local studies with the curriculum of American or Canadian schools,” he continued. “This arrangement enables them to learn simultaneously in two environments: their regular school in their hometown and a foreign school.”

Zheltov emphasized, “One of the significant advantages of this ‘extra learning’ is that students can delve into subjects not available in their local schools, allowing them to broaden their knowledge and pursue specific career-focused areas.”

The objective is straightforward: to provide students with a competitive advantage when pursuing higher education. The diplomas we award are internationally recognized and esteemed by renowned institutions such as Harvard, Yale, MIT, the London School of Economics, and the University of Toronto, among others. In many cases, students are guaranteed admission to prestigious global universities.

Securing admission to global universities is challenging, particularly for Indian students, as Indian syllabi, including CBSE, state boards, and ICSE, often lack international recognition, placing Indian applicants at a disadvantage. Our goal is to equip Indian students with an edge, enabling them to compete effectively with their foreign counterparts for admission to esteemed global institutions.

Proficiency in the English language is a significant advantage for those seeking education in the West. To facilitate this, we offer English language instruction tailored to all proficiency levels, from beginner to advanced. Our ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages) program, taught by native English-speaking instructors, enhances students’ comprehension of spoken English, pronunciation, and familiarity with common phrases and expressions.

Moreover, our Speaking Club, a weekly feature for Educate Online students, not only enhances their language skills but also develops essential soft skills such as communication, self-confidence, and overall personality improvement.
