A private school education can provide an invaluable foundation for a child, but only if it's an educational environment that it is truly suited to their individual and academic needs. That school will also be a second home for your family for the next 6-12 years, and it should feel like one.

IN A CITY WITH 60 INDEPENDENT SCHOOLS TO CHOOSE FROM, WHICH ONE IS RIGHT FOR YOU?
Let's find your school.
Are you going about it the right way?
Every year in Los Angeles, thousands of families undertake a draining and competitive Admissions process, in hopes of placement at a wonderful school.
With a methodical approach, I help you navigate each step to ensure you are:
1) selecting the best fit educational environment, and
2) delivering a strong and impactful application that genuinely reflects the unique qualities of your family.
What makes a school a good fit?
There are a lot of factors I look at closely to help narrow down which educational environments will be well-suited to your child, and which communities will fit your family as a whole. We'll talk about your family values, educational goals, parenting style, and even your own educational backgrounds to better understand what's most important to you in your child's education.
We'll have a thorough and honest conversation about your child and who they are as a person and student. I also highly recommend doing an in-person assessment of your child at your home and/or in their classroom. This can be a critical component in determining proper school fit, while also shedding light on how they may be perceived by Admissions committees during the assessment portion of the application. Ultimately, what makes a school a good fit is highly personal to each family, but I've found it can make a world of difference to take inventory of specific factors at the onset of your school search.

Which package is right for you?
My ultimate goal is helping you find placement at the best fit school for your child and family. I've seen firsthand how beneficial it can be to have consistent guidance throughout the many (often delicate) stages of the Admissions process. This becomes even more crucial if you are planning to apply to 3+ schools. Other families may just be dipping their toes into this process for the first time and would like a thorough introduction to the private school world in a compact 90-minute session. To determine which package best suits your unique family needs, I welcome you to reach out and schedule a complimentary initial consultation.
