The Best Value School Award

Honoring good colleges, universities and career schools, many of which are overlooked by traditional ranking systems.

There are thousands of higher education institutions in the U.S. that are highly regarded, especially by their students. These schools offer quality educations, at an affordable cost. Yet many of their names never appear on U.S. News & World Report, Bloomberg BusinessWeek, USA Today, Princeton Review and other metrics-based ranking systems.
That’s about to change.

Not a ranking system

The prestigious Best Value School Award goes to the quality colleges, universities and career schools, many of which are overlooked by traditional ranking systems. Ours is not a ranking. Rather, it’s an honor bestowed to schools that deserve to stand out. It’s a way to distinguish your school from hundreds—even thousands—of others vying for potential students, including first-time college students, adults returning to school and students who aren’t happy where they are.`

Prestige: You can’t buy this honor; your school has to earn it.

The Best Value School Award isn’t based on metrics. It’s a more personalized, in-depth look at what makes an institution great and unique. The process starts simply with a nomination. We take it from there. Our experienced team of academicians and entrepreneurs has run small- to medium-sized higher education institutions. We understand how challenging it is to garner attention in a crowd of brand-name, large, ranked institutions.

Differentiate your school

Going through the process doesn’t cost you a thing. In fact, being presented with a Best Value School Award and receiving the coveted Best Value School Crystal Trophy to proudly display is free. If yours is among the schools to receive this honor, you can elect to license the logo and a representation of your Trophy for use in marketing materials, much like the universities do when they’re ranked on traditional lists.

Unleash quality student prospects

Going through the Best Value School Award process as a nominee puts your school on the map for prospective students. It not only gives you a distinguishable marketing edge, but also opens the door to new and qualified student prospects.
It’s time you stood out in the crowd of colleges, universities and career schools. Remember, it starts with a simple no-cost nomination. You can self-nominate or someone else can nominate your school. Start the prestigious process to becoming a Best Value School Award winner today!
