A Valued Higher Education Partner

Ardeo Education Solutions is a public benefit company that partners with higher education institutions to provide Loan Repayment Assistance Programs (LRAPs) that are smart for students and smart for colleges.

Ardeo is a Latin verb meaning “to be on fire” or “of passion.” We are passionate about the life changing impact of higher education – and are committed to lighting a path for students that helps eliminate barriers that often restrict them from pursuing their passions on campus and after graduation.

“Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire.”


A powerful promise

Ardeo’s Loan Repayment Assistance Programs (LRAPs) are a compelling safety net for prospective students and their families. LRAPs provide a powerful promise: if income after graduation is modest, the program will help repay federal student loans, parent PLUS loans and private alternative loans.
