Putting your students first just got easier.

Waves is a HIPAA and FERPA compliant student management tool that helps school counselors keep student success and wellness at the top of mind.


What makes us different?

Our technology was designed for school counselors, not for teachers.


As popular as some communication and student management apps are in education, most can be quite complex to navigate, challenging to implement, and aren't even HIPAA compliant. That's why we worked with a team of school counselors to create a simple and sleek multi-purpose platform that would meet the needs of both students and school counselors. With that in mind, below you will find a breakdown of the three key advantages of integrating our game-changing technology into your school community.

Account Security

Onboarded students and staff receive an automated welcome email that includes a unique authorization code and a one-time access code. This information, along with their student or employee ID, is required to activate their profile, removing unauthorized access to your network.

End to End Encryption

To ensure HIPPA and FERPA compliance, all data passing through the platform, whether it is through our online or our mobile application, is encrypted. This means that all user data is converted into complex code to ensure that its contents cannot be understood, intercepted, or collected.

School Protection

When a school counselor turns off their availability, their assigned students are unable to direct message them. If a student attempts to message their school counselor when unavailable, they are redirected to crisis support resources which can help reduce liability for your school when it comes to supporting students after school hours.

Subtle Shapes Transparent

Set your school apart.

To help showcase your school's commitment to student success and wellness in education, we provide you with an official website badge that recognizes you as an official school partner.
