For more than 15 years, the Educational Research Center of America (ERCA), a not-for-profit organization, has supported high school students and their families in exploring career options and post-secondary education. ERCA has facilitated students’ connections with higher-educational institutions through the annual student survey and has awarded hundreds of scholarships, totaling over a quarter of a million dollars, to students who have made positive contributions to their communities.

Each year, ERCA has presented its Student Survey Report, detailing academic and career trends intended for parents, teachers, and counselors.
