Bringing the best of British, American, and Swiss education to private and corporate clients around the world.


The Carfax Education Group is an international group of education businesses and institutions, each focused on bringing the best of British, American, and Swiss education to private and corporate clients around the world. The group consists of three divisions: private-client businesses, institutional-client businesses, and schools. One of its strengths is in combining the educational experience and international perspectives of students, parents, institutions, and investors – a complete understanding of education that few organizations have.


Businesses belonging to the private-client division provide advice, preparation, and support to families and individuals who seek to access the best education opportunities in the UK, Switzerland, and the USA. These businesses utilize the considerable resources of the Carfax Group to ensure optimal educational outcomes for every pupil and client. The institutional clients’ division works with education investors, national and local governments, international and non-governmental organizations, and academic institutions. The schools’ division comprises the three schools that Carfax owns or operates: Carfax College in Oxford, Maysville Academy in Kentucky, and Phileas Fox Nursery School in London.


The Group, founded in the United Kingdom, has established a strong international presence with a growing network of offices in London, Oxford, Monaco, Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Moscow, St. Petersburg, Baku and Seoul.
