Find your place.

Is your child applying to an independent day school or boarding school in the U.S.? Either at the junior level or secondary level?


Are you overwhelmed by the process?


Don't know where to start?


There are so many options these days and it can be difficult to understand which school will be the best setting for your child.

Once you do figure that out, how do you ensure that you are effectively navigating the admission process or presenting your best self as a candidate?

As parents and former independent school professionals, we understand the emotional side of sending your baby off to a new place. No matter if it's close to home, or far away, it's hard. Just like you, we want your child to be happy and thriving wherever they land.

At JSA, we specialize in finding the right "fit" for our students highlighting their strengths in academics, athletics, the arts, and/or extracurricular activities. Through individual meetings, mentoring and assessments, team JSA is skilled at digging deep to help you and your child charter an authentic path to the family decision of choosing a school. And we always keep your child's best interest at heart.


JSA Education prepares, promotes, places and supports engaged, promising individuals in their quest for life-long learning and personal development, empowering each to carve out meaningful careers and affect positive change in society.


JSA Education believes that education is a life-long process which enables seekers to be empowered and equipped for a good life in the 21st century. We acknowledge and recognize the uniqueness of individuals with the understanding that maximizing the potential of those talents and gifts becomes the key to success for all.


With decades of experience, professional connections, and personal relationships in the private school sector, we know these schools inside and out. The JSA team has a combined total of over 50 years either working as independent school professionals or experiencing student life themselves. We are extremely connected to the network, allowing us to offer insight to the people, culture, and administration of the private school landscape.
