Seacoast United has partnered with JSA Education to serve the educational planning needs of a wide range of student athletes on the Seacoast by offering comprehensive services as well as a la carte options.

Need guidance through the independent school application process?

Let JSA help you.

Our Experience

Our team has held past careers as Athletic Director of St. Paul's School, Associate Director of Admissions at Groton School, dorm heads, Humanities teacher, advisors, softball coach, basketball coach, ice hockey coach, and football coach. We've been students ourselves at Phillips Exeter and St. Mark's, playing varsity soccer and varsity ice hockey. So we personally know about the application process, student life on campus, and everything in between. We look at your student's entry to independent school from all angles, focusing on what will be the best "fit" for them.

Comprehensive Services

*At JSA, we are committed to affordability. In a country where the socioeconomic disparities are continuing to perpetuate systemic barriers for children and families in education (and elsewhere), we want to do our part to contribute to a more equitable society. What drives our work is helping people gain access to new educational opportunities and collaborating with our clients to find a financially appropriate option. 


Navigating the independent school landscape can be overwhelming, especially when it comes to financing the application fees, required tests, and enrollment tuition. JSA seeks to make your process more comprehensively manageable, which includes offering financing flexibility to any clients who are interested in alternative pricing. We care about people, not transactions. 


For those families who are looking for ways to show support in extending our services broadly, there is a donation option available at various stages throughout the contract timeline. Choosing to invest in another family is a fantastic way to show your support for those who battle, daily, against structural and systematic barriers to education.
