One of the ways we support schools as they develop a strong, shared identity is by working with their community to create maxims. Maxims are statements that act as an organization’s core drivers so they remain focused on their purpose. These statements are used to both highlight areas of strength already within the community and as aspirational statements to reinforce the promises an organization makes to the community. Inflexion is also committed to sharing a clear identity as a staff and with our partners so we have maxims to keep us focused on how and most importantly WHY we as an organization work with educational leaders to transform the student experience and ensure that every student is ready to transition into their futures.

Our Maxims

Everyone is a Learner

Create space and remove barriers so every person can discover and use their strengths.

Diverse Voices are Needed

Listen to, trust, and amplify those excluded from decision-making so an equitable future is possible.

Collective Strengths Transform our World

Nurture and support communities so our combined efforts can be transformative

We’re “pragmatic idealists.” We help the groundswell of educators, students, communities, and partners who are dissatisfied with the status quo and motivated to find what really works. We share ideas and best practices from our own experience as educators and administrators, and from other schools and districts in our network. And we strive higher, aiming to infuse idealism and optimism back into education, and reminding ourselves and each other of education’s true power: to open doors; to ignite curiosity; to be catalysts for lifelong learning. To redefine readiness and equip and empower every student to pursue their passion, interests, and aspirations.

Take a few minutes to meet our Board of Directors and the Inflexion Leadership Team. If becoming part of a team dedicated to creating learning communities with the right systems and supports so that all students are graduating truly ready for college, career, and life appeals to you, discover how you can join the Inflexion team.

Inflexion is committed to ensuring EVERY student receives what they need to succeed, recognizing that the playing field remains inherently unequal. An equitable education system respects students as individuals, plays to students’ strengths, values students’ unique cultures and perspectives, and allows for the individual ownership of learning along a path driven by students’ interests and aspirations.

Inflexion is a nonprofit consulting group that strives to help educators better equip students for success. Inflexion, formerly called the Educational Policy Improvement Center (EPIC), was founded in 2002 as a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization and is a nationally recognized leader in the field of College and Career Readiness.
