Boarding schools can offer wonderful opportunities that go beyond what a student might find in a local public school. But unless a parent has detailed and current knowledge of private schools, the search for a new school can be difficult. School websites and brochures look alike, and usually don’t tell the whole story. As educational consultants, we help families navigate the private school options and admissions process. We work with students who are high-achievers looking for a greater challenge, as well as students with diagnosed learning differences, students with particular sports or extracurricular interests, and very often with students who simply would do better in a structured, nurturing environment. Finding a school where your child will be successful and happy is the ultimate goal of boarding school consulting. 

We offer a mini package, which introduces students to schools which would be a good fit for them, and gives them an overview of the admissions process and tips for going through it successfully on your own. We also offer a full comprehensive package which often spans a year or more, in which we do interview prep, essay review, contact with schools, etc. We are happy to work with late applicants, 11th-12th or PG year, repeating grade students, or any other situation.
