Our Story

After years of watching new college graduates trudge into the workforce with smothered ambitions, we couldn’t help but think: there must be a better way to match students with the right higher education opportunities and future career paths that will lead to more satisfying outcomes.

Every person is unique and each thrives in different circumstances. Our mission at School Authority is to help future students find the perfect college to attend, based on each individual’s personal preferences, lifestyle, strengths and career aspirations.

We do this by providing detailed profiles on every single higher education institution in America. Currently we have custom profiles on 6,000+ institutions wherein we discuss the strengths of the school and how they compare to national and state averages. We also aggressively research and employ data science to identify schools that are often lesser-known, but perfect fits for students exact preferences. In addition, we quantitatively rank colleges in 500+ different categories and fields of study to truly help students select the best options available to them.
