Inspired’s Teachers and Students to Gain Access to Crimson’s Global World Leading College Counselling Services and Technology Platform
November 11, 2019: Edtech startup and global leader in supporting students to gain admission into the world’s best universities such as Harvard, Stanford and Oxford,Crimson Education, today announced a far-reaching partnership with Inspired Schools.
The partnership includes a collaboration with Inspired’s 64 schools across 5 continents, including the King’s College Schools in the UK, Spain, Germany and Latvia, the Reddam House group of schools in South Africa and Australia and the ACG Education schools in New Zealand and Asia.
Further, the agreement unites two world leading education groups dedicated to providing their students—including 45,000 students in 64 globally located Inspired schools—with the very best instructors and learning tools the evolving edtech marketplace has to offer.
The combined power of Crimson’s proven track record in supporting students in gaining admission to the Ivy League, Oxford and Cambridge at four times the global admission rate, and Inspired’s reputation as a leader in private school excellence, was described by Crimson CEO Jamie Beaton as a unique and landscape shifting opportunity.
“Inspired and Crimson share an aligned vision in supporting students to reach the world's best universities,” said Mr Beaton, 24.
“Crimson has had substantial private interest from students from the Inspired group so far, and this partnership is a natural extension of that.”
As part of the partnership, Crimson will provide next generation counselling for all of Inspired’s globally located students while Inspired parents will have access to Crimson’s services at a discounted partnership level.
The integration will include:
- Inspired parents having access to Crimson’s world leading university admissions support services at subsidized rates.
- Inspired school counsellors having full visibility into the student’s university application progress, so that they might track that student’s roadmap and compliment their efforts at school.
- The supercharging of a student’s results both in the classroom and on the university admissions stage with Crimson’s tutors and mentors complimenting their chosen subjects at school.
- The integration of Crimson’s proprietary technology with Inspired school systems, enabling counsellors to message a student’s Crimson tutors directly and work in seamless collaboration to optimise student success.
“We are excited to join forces with Inspired school counsellors who, through the Crimson App, will have full visibility over their students and their application roadmap, standardised test scores, target school lists, extracurriculars and more,” said Mr Beaton.
“As such, the partnership represents a world first opportunity to maximise Inspired students’ potential on the competitive university admissions stage.”
Inspired CEO, Nadim Nsouli, sees the opportunity for Inspired schools to forge new ground by combining the power of an Inspired education with Crimson’s university admissions expertise.
“Inspired schools pride themselves on setting a new standard in private education with a dedication to excellence permeating every aspect of the experience, and Crimson’s highly innovative, technologically advanced, individualised and holistic approach to academic excellence will only add to the Inspired school difference.
“As a group of schools dedicated to setting up each and every one of our students for a lifetime of success, we look forward to enhancing our academic and extracurricular environment with Crimson’s global network of expert admissions tutors and mentors.”
Since its 2013 founding in Auckland, New Zealand, Crimson has maintained and built upon its mission to level the world top university admissions playing field. In six years alone, the company has helped its students secure 193 offers to the Ivy League, 59 to Oxford or Cambridge, 400+ to the UK Top 25, and US $65M in financial aid and scholarships.
Crimson employs over 2400 tutors and consultants who are currently based at, or are graduates from top-ranked universities including: Harvard, Oxford, MIT, Yale, Cambridge, Princeton and Stanford. The company also boasts mentors and instructors who are former Ivy League, Oxbridge and World Top 20 university teachers, professors and PhDs.
While Crimson works with students from many thousands of schools around the world, this unique school group partnership provides a focused student-advantage effort to enhance the already superior education services Inspired schools currently provide.
