FACTS Family Custom App is a school-branded app that allows you to regularly communicate with your families and send push notifications, while providing them with crucial academic information. It creates one place with direct access to homework, announcements, grades, and everything else your school offers – keeping families engaged.
FACTS Learning Management System (LMS) makes it easy to manage curriculum, deploy individual learning programs (ILPs), and implement other current teaching methodologies via an intuitive, friendly interface. Our LMS measures student progress and prepares students for scholastic advancement.
FACTS is improving the quality of education for students by building up teacher skillsets. We use the GlobalED platform to issue globally verified credentials that allow educators to have more workforce mobility and a secure, authentic place to keep track of their achievements. Schools can also use the portal to keep track of school-wide teacher professional development and certifications.
Website design and ease-of-use is crucial to recruiting and retention of students. Our easy-to-use website content management system (CMS) lets you promote your vision and values, as well as share information with current and prospective families — all with strong branding for your institution.

FACTS has been a fundamental contributor to the way that we interact with our data. We have been able to access information easily and accurately that has ensured that we are working with optimised efficiency on a daily basis. FACTS has allowed us to revolutionise how we use data to inform learning and empower both our students and wider community through interactive engagement. I love the intuitive approach of FACTS and the way it allows individuals to streamline their approach and utilise the functionality in a variety of powerful ways.
FACTS’ commitment to provide schools an ever-expanding set of API (application provider interface) data points has set our school up to use and seek value-added services which round out our ecosystem of products and services. The best enterprise solutions like FACTS understand infrastructure is all about interoperability.
Our recent experiences have opened our eyes to new possibilities when it comes to learning delivery and school management. Students have been far more engaged taking control of their learning - giving them autonomy and the ability to chart their own path based on their interests has been incredibly successful. We’ll continue to work with the FACTS team to identify opportunities to incorporate more technology and digital tools into the classroom. At the same time, we’re exploring integrations that will support us to drive even greater efficiency in school management.
