Choose Better. Learn Better.

We Help People Make Smarter Choices About Where and How to Learn

People make lots of decisions about education — for themselves and for their kids — from pre-school to grad school. Most of us make recommendations — to friends, to colleagues, to employees — for programs and schools and colleges and courses. Sometimes those choices and recommendations are based on terrific research and thoughtful insights. And sometimes they're not, relying instead on limited information or outdated perceptions. Noodle is a different (and better) approach to making smarter decisions about education.

A Noodle Approach

Our job is to help people who are making tough, often high-stakes choices — by giving them the best-of-the-best tools, insights, and recommendations available. And while we take pride in the quality of our recommendations, we determinedly avoid the all-too-common pitfall of "not-invented-here" egoism. We seek out opinions and ideas other than own, share good advice, and give credit where it is due. Whether it is best-in-class technology, really smart articles, or connections to people, our approach is to do whatever is necessary to serve you and earn your trust.

About The Team

Some people think of us as education pioneers. Others call us revolutionaries. A few have even called us bomb-throwers. They are all right. We've been working on the cutting edges of education for more than 35 years: from charter schools, to test-prep, to college selection, admission, and financial aid. And admittedly, we have shaken things up more than a few times. (Yes, we're proud of it.) Our team includes teachers, deans, designers, writers, technology geeks and others who are all passionate about one thing: implementing thoughtful, positive change for better education.
