We're on a mission to help international students thrive.
Xenia Education Inc. is on a mission to help international students thrive. Our flagship platform, Guide, is an international student engagement platform for higher education institutions.
Xenia Education Inc. supports higher educational institution’s international student retention efforts by the empowerment of international students, allowing them to thrive by making orientation and onboarding more immersive, engaging, and cost-effective. Giving staff members the ability to engage and monitor the student experience, starting before arrival. Supporting staff members & providing them the opportunity to engage and monitor students’ experience, even before arrival.
Our products use a suite of training simulation and analytics tools for students and their respective educational institutions. We use an array of web, e-learning, and instructional design technologies to develop our products. Students have access to simulated worlds that acclimatize them to post-secondary educational institutions in North America long before they arrive for their first semester. The results and data gathered from the simulations are then used to engage and monitor the student experience and match the student’s needs to the services provided by their institutions. The end result is a school-ready student and a student-ready institution.
“Helping international students thrive”
International students share ordinary student concerns that are often compounded by their social, cultural, and academic transition. They are often not given the necessary tools or support to navigate these situations. We are driven by a passion for education technology and the learner experience of international students and believe that all students deserve the same standard of education. Xenia Education Inc. is on a mission to prepare international students for the North American Education System before their arrival and to continue to support them throughout their studies.
