Stetson & Associates, Inc. is an educational consulting firm focused on educational excellence and systems change.

We have a national reputation for providing “cutting-edge” services. Our credo is “Excellence AND Equity!” and our mission is to support administrators, teachers, and parents in their efforts to enable every student to be engaged, included, high-achieving, and prepared for adulthood.

When Stetson & Associates was founded in 1987, we embraced the belief that it is not possible for an educational institution to be deemed excellent, unless it is also equitable. Over the years, the call for both excellence and equity in education has exemplified our work by:
