Founded in 1997, EdGate Correlation Services’
core commitment is to deliver the highest level
of service and data product to content providers.
Originally established by educators
for educators who recognized the
power of the Internet as a teaching and
learning tool, the focal point of success
was the development of the standards-driven
technology and process of alignment that

across the country accessed the standards-based
Curriculum Matrix™ to find quality lessons
for use in the classroom. With the growing success of these innovative alignment processes and sophisticated tools,
EdGate Correlation Services began working with
publishers in 2000. With its hallmark ability
to meet the demands of the current marketplace,
