Helping families navigate the boarding school admission and financial aid processes is our raison d’être. We want every student and family to find the school that best fitting school.

Each year, we work to stay abreast of changes in the processes; the ways that families come to the processes; and the questions you’ll be asking.

We’ve added a level of convenience by launching our first of its kind new online course: “A Parent’s Guide to Getting Your Child Accepted to their Best Private School!

It’s a 12-part course that teaches you everything you need to know to find the best school for your child!

If you’ve got questions about:

Types of Schools
Financial Aid
The School Interview
The School Tour
The Admission Essay
School Costs
& much more…

Our course is the most cost-effective way to learn the finer points of private school admission as you look to gain acceptance to the perfect private school.

We’re not alone on the understanding your student/admission process choosing a school front. Our friends at Grand River Academy recently published How to Choose a Boarding School offering their advice to potential boarding school families.

I never claim to have the market cornered/every base covered perfectly and, in HOW TO CHOOSE A BOARDING SCHOOL Grand River Academy (OH) offers additional angles on boarding school admission that can help with each family’s boarding school considerations.

GRA does a nice job covering parental motivations behind a boarding school application, single-gender education, and questions to guide your campus visit.

Use these resources to put you well on your way to planning your boarding school admission and financial aid applications.
