ORBIT EDUCATIONAL PARTNERS, INC.


Orbit Educational Partners, Inc. was founded by Bob Pickens, former professional athlete and Olympic wrestler. Our mission is to educate families on what they need to know and do in order for their children to experience post-secondary educational opportunities as a scholar athlete or student.

Bob has extensive experience in collaboration building between civic/community groups and youth services agencies, as evidenced by his 35-year relationship with Boys Girls Clubs Of America in the areas of club expansion, program development, mentoring and community outreach during the 2010 Census. Also to Bob's capacity building experience is his role as Educational Speaker/Ambassador for the National Collegiate Athletic Recruiting Network, a company which educates scholar-athletes and their families on what they need to know and do to maximize the athlete's chances of being recruited by a College/University that will meet their needs, expectations, skills and talents.

Now, Orbit has expanded its team to include Kaplan Testing/Tutorial, world renowned for its College Preparation testing and tutorial programming, K-12 and its highly respected post-graduate testing and career search programming. Joining us also is Scholarship Academy, highly recognized for its outcome-based impact-programming process which empowers families to build a plan which will maximize a family's chance of finding scholarship opportunities that will meet their needs and tailored to reflect their expectations and capacity.

Orbit has created an educational/workshop model structured to engage the family, student and community to build a post-secondary educational outreach plan which will bundle the three educational disciplines which comprise Orbit's Workshop Model. Thus, empower the families to determine their own destiny while having a measurable support system in place to help guide each family on a journey to realize their post-secondary educational dreams.

Orbit is positioned to meet the needs of military-connected families in search of a game plan/support system which helps them to realize their post-secondary educational dreams. We have assembled a team of educational/athletic practitioners with a wealth of experience and resources to make this happen, and welcome the opportunity to assist our youth in accomplishing their post secondary educational dreams this through their interconnected relationships with the community.
