“Education is our passport to the future, for tomorrow belongs to the people who prepare for it today.” – Nelson Mandela

Is your family starting to think about a selective college, independent private day or boarding school, or already in the throes of the process…feeling stressed-out and overwhelmed?

With our experience and knowledge we provide families and students with critical advice, thoughtful strategies, helpful direction, and invaluable reassurance during the long and often bewildering admissions journey. We start working with families as early as 7th through 12th grade searching for the best-fit schools, creating a list of favorites to crafting an application, learning what schools are looking for academically and outside the classroom, and insight into how schools decide whom to admit. 

We will help you cover every important step, and most importantly…we will show your family how to have open and balanced conversations to keep everyone on the same page, feeling less stressed, and actually enjoying the adventure together.

It’s never too early to start planning your education journey!
