The communication platform for school districts and universities

Keeping students, faculty, staff, and families on the same page has never been more critical. Axios HQ helps you bridge the gap.


Digital communications in education need to evolve

Campus and district communicators handle a lot — including a high volume of essential updates that need to get out. 

But when you're reaching students stepping between classes, educators focused on lesson plans, leaders who may be on or off campus, and families who desperately try to stay plugged in, the way you engage each needs to be as unique as they are. 

Education's communication challenges

Students and educators have changed a lot in the last few years. Most campus communications have not evolved along with them. Data from McKinsey shows...

Education 1-3
33 %
of teachers quit because of uninspiring leadership
Education 2-1
17 %
are quitting because they lack necessary resources
Education 3
16 %
are quitting because of a lack of community

Axios HQ keeps students and staff connected

Schools and universities teach the next generation of leaders and disruptors — but many still rely on legacy communication tools and strategies because "they’ve always worked” in the past.

In reality, they're outdated, difficult to use, and leave staff, students, and donors under-informed. We believe the way you teach and communicate needs to be just as modern as what you teach and communicate.

Axios HQ gives you the tools you need for more modern, open, and engaging communication.
