School Search and Advisory Service

Our Premier School Search and Placement Program is designed to support you throughout the entire search process from beginning to end.  Until your child has been placed in school, an experienced School Choice education consultant will work with you to accomplish the following tasks:

  • Intake and Assessment: Through interviews with the parents and children, a review of applicable academic and test records, and completion of the School Choice Student/Family Profile, the consultant will better understand your children’s and your family’s values, priorities, and preferences, as well as your children’s strengths, needs, and learning style.
  • School Target Analysis: We combine your children’s profile with School Choice’s comprehensive data base of schools and, with the crucial addition of your consultant’s own familiarity with area schools, create a School Target Analysis. This report is developed specifically for your children, based on the profile information already gathered, identifying criteria such as size, location, and style of school. It provides summary information regarding the schools on which we believe you should be focusing, including public schools if you wish to include them in your search.
  • Preparation for School Visits: We provide help and advice in preparing you for school visits, pointing out things to look for and useful questions to ask; we will help interpret the information you receive and assist you in evaluating your experience during the tour in order to identify factors of importance to you as well as mistakes to avoid that can prove costly in the admissions process.
  • Application Review: No one can write the school applications but you. However, we will edit and offer commentary on the first application you complete for each of your children. This review will offer suggestions regarding tone, clarity, and structure, and will help you to ensure that your first application is as good as it can be. This review will also serve as a guide for any subsequent applications you choose to complete.
  • Interview Preparation: In preparation for your all-important interview, your School Choice consultant will work with your family as a coach to create the best possible image of you and your family, consistent with who you are. We will debrief with you after the visits you have scheduled to determine what, if any, follow-up is appropriate.
  • Decision-Making: At the end of the process, you may have several options from which to choose. Your School Choice consultant will help you evaluate what you have learned during this journey, and weigh your options so that you can make the most appropriate decision.

What is your role in the process?

School Choice helps families identify the most appropriate schools for their children, and assists them in navigating the admissions process in a way that offers the best chance for success.  But no service can take the place of parents in the admissions process.  Your family’s responsibilities include things like completing the questionnaires, applications, and other forms promptly and completely, gathering up the necessary documents, transcripts, and certificates, writing the applications, and making the school search process a priority in your schedule.
