We recently posed this question to six boarding school admission counselors:
“What admission tips would you offer to a family considering a private school?”
Each offers a slightly different take in advising families. Some common themes ring loud and clear.
- Assessing fit- can you see yourself at the school?
- Ask lots of questions.
- Speak with people affiliated with the school to get a deeper sense of the community & offerings- do your research.
- Relax & have fun!
