About Us

Founded in 2003 in response to the acute shortage of leadership and management talent in the education sector, Education Pioneers attracts, prepares, and connects top leaders and managers to accelerate excellence in education. Education Pioneers' strengths include a strong leadership team, an innovative culture, a powerful recruitment model, and a track record of success in scaling with quality.

Education Pioneers has grown into a thriving national organization operating in 20 cities with a network of over 2,000 leaders and partnerships with more than 180 education organizations. Education Pioneers has significantly expanded the talent supply in education by connecting our Alumni to high-impact careers in education and supporting them to succeed. More than 70% of our employed Alumni work full-time in education.


Education Pioneers aims to transform education into the best led and managed sector in the U.S. so that all children receive a high-quality education. To fuel this vision, we plan to recruit 10,000 leaders and managers by 2023. Moreover, we will connect leaders in our network with high-impact leadership roles in key organizations across the education sector.
