ICF provides education consulting for primary to secondary, postsecondary, and adult education programs and institutions.

ICF supports the improvement of youth and adult education through research, evaluation, technical assistance, and training. Our expertise spans elementary, secondary, postsecondary, and adult education and focuses on critical issues such as education reform and improvement; career pathways; college and career readiness; and student, education institution, and intervention program outcomes.

As a trusted partner to our clients — government at all levels and the wider array of organizations within the education sector ICF recognizes that their stakeholders—students, parents, educators, researchers, and policymakers — are our clients, too. ICF's approach is to improve the skills and knowledge of clients while building their capacity to meet future challenges.

ICF is a producer of research that meets rigorous methodological standards and has an extensive history of large scale evaluation of education initiatives, including randomized control trials, quasi-experimental studies, and mixed methods. Examining complex research questions, ICF researchers look for evidence-based answers that translate quickly into improved practice.

Combining proficiency in research and evaluation with expertise in technical assistance enables ICF to guide clients from research through to practical applications.
