Mission Statement

Our priority is school safety and accountability; our goal is to be the standard for integrated school safety and operations systems.

Our History

ScholarChip was founded by Maged Atiya, PhD (physics) in 2000 to provide school districts with fast and powerful computing in order to centralize security and operations into a single low maintenance system.

When his children were young, Dr. Atiya served on the Board of Education in Port Jefferson, NY, where he realized that schools didn’t have access to the very high levels of computing power that were available to science and industry. He established ScholarChip to meet this need.

Since its inception, ScholarChip has focused on providing its growing list of clients with the most advanced web-centric solutions backed by unrivaled client support. As a result, we have experienced rapid growth while maintaining our commitment to excellent service.

Prior to founding ScholarChip, Dr. Atiya was a Senior Physicist at Brookhaven National Laboratory on Long Island and an Assistant Professor of Physics at Columbia University.

Locations

ScholarChip’s offices are in New York City, Portland, Oregon, Owings Mills, Maryland, and Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. A 10,000 sq. ft. development facility is located on Long Island. Our robust reseller network serves the entire United States.
