A Letter From Our President

Dear Parent -

Looking back now, I realize just how much of my success later in life came from the head start I received as a student at the Sidwell Friends School.  Though I was little aware of it at the time, the intellectual and ethical foundation I received at Sidwell helped to shape my future.  These early years of my education are at least partially responsible for my eventual acceptance to Ivy League universities for undergraduate and graduate work and for the success of the education business I co-founded.  
As more and more families recognize that a private school education starts a child out on a path to success later in life, competition and selectivity in the private school admissions process has come to almost mirror that of the undergraduate admissions process.  For this reason, we’ve built a team of experienced private school admissions counseling professionals to help families navigate this complex and sometimes anxiety-ridden process.
Our private school admissions counselors will get to know your child and work with your family throughout the testing and admissions process.  Our goal is to help your child at each step of the admissions process, and to ensure that his or her application is organized, polished, and on-time.
Our counselors are experts in private education and have held positions in admissions at elite boarding and private schools across the country. They understand what these schools look for in potential incoming students and work with you and your child to help craft a successful application.

Admissions Counseling for Private School Applications

Your Applications

This isn't a theoretical program. We take a hands-on and practical approach that focuses on completing key elements of the application process. The end goal is to have your child's admissions package polished and on-time.

Your Needs

Admissions Consulting isn't a one-size-fits-all kind of service. We can definitely help your child with the full process, but if you only want help with specific components of the application, we can build a custom program that addresses your key needs.

Your Success

We focus on two things. First, ensuring that your child crafts a compelling application that increases his or her odds of admission. Second, ensuring that your child gains admission to a range of schools where he or she can grow and be happy.

Expert Private School Admissions Counselors

Admissions Experts

Our counselors know the admissions process inside-out and understand what schools are looking for in prospective students.

Extensive Counseling Backgrounds

Every member of our team has extensive experience counseling students, and some have been doing so for 2-3 decades.

Thoughtful/Flexible Styles

Our consultants will guide your family through challenging decisions and help your child communicate what makes him or her unique.

You (and your family) are busy

To be effective, an admissions counseling program has to work with your family's schedule. We make life easier by bringing the support to you, and making logistics easy:

In-home convenience

To provide you access to our elite counseling team, and make logistics easier, all of our admissions counseling takes place remotely. Your child and the counselor will meet via Skype and on the phone, and will use cloud-based document sharing tools to work collaboratively to build a strong application. This approach enables us to be highly selective in our hiring processes and gives you access to any member of our team.

Flexible scheduling

Our one-to-one format and innovative approach make scheduling sessions with your consultant easy. Every program is custom designed to meet your family's scheduling needs and to ensure that all key milestones and deadlines are met on-time. You and your consultant will lay out a calendar that works for everyone, and if you need to add hours for additional support or reschedule a session, you can do so easily.

Private School Program Details

The goal of our admissions consulting is to help your child navigate the application process in a thoughtful and organized way. Our program structure is flexible and is designed to meet the diverse needs of the thousands of families with whom we work each year. For families looking for comprehensive help with all of the key stages of the process, we offer full packages designed to take your child from start to finish. And if you are looking for help with specific stages of the admissions cycle, we offer shorter packages that enable you to work with our consultants in an a la carte fashion. In either format, the areas in which we can provide your child support include:

- School Selection - Essay Strategy & Development
- Recommendations - Supplemental Material Work
- Planning Visits - Resume/CV Development
- Interview Preparation - Waitlist Guidance/Appeals
- Application Strategy - Final Application Review
