“As owners of Cranium Academy, we were involved in every aspect of our business. Our staff was like family, our students became our little buddies, and their parents became our friends. Selling to Endeavor Schools was not an easy decision, nor one we made hastily.
Ricardo, the CEO, and Danielle, the COO, were very patient with us as we considered releasing our dream into their hands. Ultimately, Danielle assured us that Endeavor seeks out schools which are impacting their communities and have no desire to change a culture that is thriving. Endeavor Schools recognized that the individuality of each school and of each student is paramount to their continued success.
Our team was our most valued resource, so being able to shift them into Endeavor’s benefits package eased our concerns. Knowing they had security in their future and in their health was paramount. Just as Danielle had assured us, the transition was beneficial to our employees.
Endeavor assisted us in notifying the families by being present to respond to any concerns they had. In the months since the closing of the sale, my team has confirmed that Endeavor made good on all promises. An abundance of educational resources has been made available to them, opportunities for professional growth are plentiful, support for special projects like accreditation is endless, and the opportunity to connect with their peers at other schools is inspirational. The integrity of the business model remains the same.
RESPECT is the core of Endeavor Schools’ values and we can attest that the foundation of integrity and transparency that Ricardo, Danielle and their team build with sellers is on point. Having embraced the idea of a different future for ourselves, we can attest that we would not have done anything differently.”
