One of the most important yet more difficult parts of relocating with children is, of course, understanding all the school options in your new community. Many times the move is on short notice and falls within the middle of a school year. Luckily, the Seattle area is home to many high quality public schools, including many nationally recognized choice programs as well as dual-language options.  Seattle and the Eastside areas are also very accessible to a broad selection of academically challenging secular and faith-based private schools. 

As your school consultant, I will spend time getting to know your children's learning styles and interests as well as your educational preferences. I will provide an overview of the educational landscape and help you identify schools that match your children's needs and interests.

If you are interested in independent schools, I will help you navigate the admissions process, including applications, interview preparation and tutor referrals. I will contact schools to inquire about vacancies and organize appointments for your family to visit schools. 

Our work together will result in a tailored report that identifies not just one right school, but all viable options for your children.

 

Independent School Consultation Available - Fall 2017

During the Fall independent school admission season I am available to advise Seattle area families on their independent school search. In a 90-minute face-to-face meeting, we will review application essays and talk about the do's and don'ts for both parents and student applicants, discuss how to get the most out of an Open House visit, and practice for family and student interviews.  I'll share best practices for asking for impactful references from teachers and community contacts, with time also available for Q&A.  We will conclude our meeting by discussing strategies for all follow-up communication to ensure you are submitting the strongest possible application for your child.  The cost for this 90-minute consultation is $200.
