We work with families in helping them to find several “good match” schools.

    We then help students to put their best foot forward in the competitive admissions process. A special consulting program is offered for “long distance” families outside of the NY/NJ area. Also, we have experience working with 11th grade and PG placements, and with families who start the process in the spring or summer, after many deadlines. Our rates are reasonable.

    My day-to-day role in the firm is as an educational consultant and the Director of Independent Day and Boarding School Advisory Services. My experience as an educator aids in my examination and evaluation of their curricula, teaching methods, and extracurricular programs. By physically touring and visiting day and secondary schools, meeting their administrators and key faculty, I get to know the unique personality and attributes of each school. Knowing both the schools and my clients enables me to match students with the right schools for them. It is fulfilling to assist families in finding the “best fit’ schools for their children. I frequently work with families that are moving to the US from abroad. This experience led to my receiving the International Sub-Specialty designation from IECA. During my last ten years of educational consulting, I have placed close to 500 students into private day and boarding schools throughout the country.
