Comprehensive School Placement Service
A full-service package to receive expert guidance throughout the entire private school admissions process from planning to final decisions. After a careful review of students’ grades, standardized tests, and additional materials an initial meeting is set up to understand the family’s aspirations.
This service includes:
- Unlimited advising meetings and conversations
- Guidance with ISEE/SSAT testing
- Creating a school list and timeline
- Support with parent and student applications
- Application strategies
- Interview coaching
- Advocating on student’s behalf with Admissions Directors
(This service does not include test prep).
As families navigate the admissions process and explore private schools, we answer questions, provide guidance with planning and help strategize options.
School List and Timeline
After careful review of a student’s academic strengths, challenges, and extracurricular interests we create a personalized list of schools. We then meet with families to give an overview of the schools suggested and to answer questions. Then, a timeline is created to help manage the requirements and deadlines. This ensures each step of the process is completed in a timely manner.
We help students understand their strengths and talents while guiding them through the application and essay process. Furthermore, students are encouraged to convey their stories in a compelling way while maintaining their unique voice. Revisions will be offered until the applications are complete.
Through our one-on-one service, students develop successful test results to solidify their applications. We review the test format, teach students test-taking strategies, and target areas for improvement.
Through our knowledge of independent schools, we prepare students to have an understanding of each school community. Sample questions are provided through a mock interview process for applicants to have a realistic experience. Feedback and advice are given to both students and parents at the conclusion of the session.
