Educational Advisory for Young Children – Parents Only    

This option provides a two-hour advisory session for parents who desire assistance with educational planning for their child. The scope of the single advisory session will be tailored to address the family’s individualized needs. For example, some families may be in search of an objective perspective on their child’s academic profile in order to identify the general educational options most suitable for their son or daughter. Other families may have a discrete question or issue that can be addressed in a single meeting with short-term guidance in collaboration with their child’s school and select professionals. This option includes limited follow-up conversations to review next steps for you and your child. Once the advisory service is concluded, families who desire additional support may apply payment to the Comprehensive service.

Educational Advisory   

This option provides short-term advisory support for families who desire assistance with educational planning for their child. I ask to meet with your child individually and review all relevant educational documents so that I can properly assess your son’s or daughter’s needs. My goal is to get to know your child with a focus on his or her personality, affinities, and learning style. After this informal assessment and separate parent meeting, I will discuss preliminary school recommendations, including information about schools of interest and the admissions process. This option includes limited communications to refine your child’s school list and answer questions about next steps in the admissions process. Once the school list is finalized, the advisory is concluded. Families in need of additional support may choose to move to the comprehensive day or boarding school service.

Comprehensive Day School

This comprehensive option provides families with personalized assistance with the independent day school search and decision-making process. I will tailor my approach to meet a particular family’s needs and develop an individualized action plan to guide you throughout the admissions process–initial campus visits to final decisions.

    • Meetings with parents and child.
    • A review of all relevant school documents and any educational testing.
    • Consultations with your child’s teacher(s) and select professionals with important insights about your child with your written consent.
    • Recommendations for appropriate schools or programs.
    • Ongoing communications with parents and subsequent meetings to assist with next steps in the admissions process.
    • Interview prep and mentoring for students applying to grade 6 and up
    • Ongoing communications with prospective schools.
    • Review and discussion of school decisions.

Comprehensive Boarding School

This option is for families interested in evaluating boarding school for their child. This comprehensive package includes the specific steps outlined in the comprehensive day service, as well as assistance with school visit schedules and support for student and parent essays. My role is both as advisor and facilitator for your child with an emphasis on the self-reflective process required of students who choose to apply to boarding schools. I remain a resource for you and your child once your son or daughter transitions to boarding school for the first year.
