Are you confident your Educational Institution is getting first-class risk management protection?

In the 21st century, your educational institution faces a multitude of threats that were unimaginable just a few decades ago. While having the right insurance coverage is essential to help protect you from these risks, it’s simply not enough; you also need an experienced resource to guide you. If your existing insurance broker is not helping you evaluate your day-to-day risks, taking the proper time to develop a strategy to mitigate these risks, and stepping up to lead you through the process of protecting your school, then it’s time for you to find a partner who will. The Fred C. Church Education Practice Group is an experienced risk resource that does all these things and more. Our hands-on approach means you are engaging with a team of industry professionals who will assist you in identifying and assessing your risk so that we can properly safeguard your school, your faculty, and, most critically, your students.

Areas Of Focus

Serving the insurance needs of educational institutions across the U.S.

When we first began insuring educational institutions more than 25 years ago, Fred C. Church primarily worked with private independent schools whose students ranged from kindergarteners to 12th-graders. However, over the next several decades, as our capabilities broadened and our team grew, so did the scope of our practice. Today, in addition to independent schools, our clients include colleges, universities, public schools, and more across the nation. There are very few insurance brokers who possess the knowledge and experience our team has in developing risk management and insurance solutions for educational institutions.

We deliver customized risk management programs and services to a wide variety of educational institutions, including:

  • Independent Boarding Schools
  • Private Day Schools
  • Community Schools
  • Public Schools K-12
  • Parochial Schools
  • Charter Schools
  • Technical Schools
  • Global and Experiential Education Providers
  • Special Education Schools
  • Private Colleges & Universities
  • Public Colleges & Universities

Why partner with Fred C. Church Insurance as your risk resource?

One of the many benefits of being an independent agent is our ability to represent numerous highly rated insurance carriers, many of whom are the best in the industry. This arrangement allows us to provide educational institutions of varying size and exposure with comprehensive insurance solutions, including Asset Protection, Campus Enterprise Risk Management, Faculty/Staff Health and Safety, Auto/Fleet Safety, Privacy & Cyber Liability Coverage, International Travel, and more.

Our Three-Step Risk Management Process

Working hand-in-hand with you to regularly monitor your company’s potential losses.


We start by mapping out your potential operational and financial risks; how likely each is to happen and how frequently; and what impact they may have on your organization and finances. Then, working together, we take a proactive and strategic approach to help you determine which risks require your attention first.


Our goal is to understand how you currently deal with your identified risks and if this aligns with our knowledge of best practices for your specific industry. We also review your current insurance policies, and their limits and exclusions, to discover possible gaps or redundancies that may warrant changes to your plan.


Our team puts together a risk management program to address the risks you knew about, but that may not have been adequately covered, and those that we identified for you through this process. We then offer a variety of insurance solutions that will allow you to make decisions that align with your appetite for risk.
