 PLACEMENT SERVICES

Placement Services

For our students entering middle school and high school, we follow the steps below to help place you in your ideal independent school setting. 

With that said, this process is highly personalized.

We customize the path for each individual student, every step of the way. 

A more detailed explanation of our services will be outlined in our future formal proposal to you, but here is a general overview.

We offer a complimentary consultation or two to see if our services are right for you.

 

We set up a meeting with John face-to-face via Zoom.

John has a knack for understanding students well during the first introduction.

A PLAN TOGETHER

Once you've signed a contract with us, we get to work on your school list.  Here is where our experienced knowledge comes into play. After a couple of meetings with your student, we will have an idea of which schools will be a good "fit" for them. But we don't want to make the list for you. We will make it together, considering your child's strengths in academics, athletics, the arts, and/or extracurricular activities. From the beginning, the process is student-driven.

WE GIVE YOU THE TOOLS TO SHINE

Our focus is to help your child submit a stellar application, nail the interview, and equip them for a successful transition to their new school. These things often don't come naturally to kids, but we help them develop these skills.

Keeping your student's voice above all else, we will guide them through everything from essay revisions to mock interviews. Not morphing them into robotic memorizers, but rather helping them stand out as their best, unique self.

THROUGH THE WHOLE PROCESS

THROUGH THE WHOLE PROCESS

Depending on what package you select, we do everything from scheduling your interviews to picking you up at the airport to accompanying you on your tours. We are here for you throughout the entire process.

 

We implore our students to complete the actual applications themselves to take ownership of the process however, we know that all of the SAO and Gateway application questions can become overwhelming. So we log in to your accounts to make sure everything is in order and accounted for before submitting.

WE CHAMPION YOU

WE CHAMPION YOU

After your student submits the application, we go to work.

We have built respected relationships at these schools that allow us to call up the admissions office or the department chair or the coach and sing your child's praises.

We put in a good word for your applicant and they stand out from the rest.

WE HELP YOU MAKE A DECISION

WE HELP YOU MAKE A DECISION

Often times our students receive acceptance letters from multiple schools, causing them to second-guess their "top choice."

 

This is a big decision, we get it.

We are here to advise you, if needed. And when your child signs their commitment letter, we are (almost) as proud + excited as you.
