Focusing on the Right Match

Independent day and boarding schools can be very diverse environments offering a wide variety of academic, athletic, and extracurricular opportunities. With myriad options, we are dedicated to helping families find those schools where their child will thrive in their own way.

Because schools continuously update their programs, invest in new resources, and improve their facilities, our consultants spend a great deal of time on campuses and talking with admission directors to keep current with changes at individual schools as well as with broader trends in independent education. Working closely with students and their families to guide them through the application process, our personalized approach combined with our strong working knowledge of schools enables us to help families to make the best possible choices for their children’s education.
