Welcome to the Educational Research Center of America

The Educational Research Center of America (ERCA) Board of Trustees is pleased to announce our new Mission Statement:

The Educational Research Center of America (ERCA), a not-for-profit research organization, motivates students to explore career pathways relevant to their interests, education, and passions.  

We partner with youth development organizations, institutions of higher education, teachers, counselors, parents, students, and prospective employers to inspire and empower a highly skilled future workforce.

Our research stimulates career opportunity for all students, whether they opt for a community college, four year college or university, or other form of education and continuing development. We strive to reach female and male students, from all geographies and economic backgrounds.



Each year, ERCA compiles a report summarizing the non-personally identifiable information obtained from the survey and makes it available to students and educators. Click on this link for the current ERCA Annual Report.
