Education: The Road to Success!

Every day schools shoulder immense responsibility. It comes with the business. Whether pre-K or college, they are full of students interacting with each other, faculty, and volunteers. Risks range from mundane slip-and-falls to chemistry lab accidents to athletic team oversight to student transportation. Additionally, the facilities themselves represent enormous capital investments in need of protection.

Know your risks, but do not be paralyzed by them. Our school insurance program is tailored to your needs, not the other way around. You know how to teach and educate. We can help create a plan to reduce risk and cover exposure. Let us be your trusted insurance agent.
