Use the Power of Data to Improve Student Retention

The Lighthouse early alert system analyzes a variety of data points to determine students who may be at risk. The model is specific to your institution and allows you to help students before it’s too late.



Analysts know that the most time-consuming part of the process is getting your data into one place. Our experience with higher educational data and our expertise in software engineering allows us to efficiently aggregate the data. We'll adapt to your technology (query, API, FTP, etc.) instead of making you conform to a vendor's requirements.

This allows faculty members or student support staff to react quickly and efficiently, improving a student's chance of success in their program.
