The DC metropolitan area has over 100 independent schools...let us introduce you!

Our Approach

Our goal is to help your child find a school that makes her happy about waking up in the morning. Every school is like a family, and we believe that every child has a right to feel like he belongs and is valued for the unique gifts that he possesses.

STEP 1: Get to know you and your child

When we meet with families and students, our first objective is to get to know you and your child. This will include a thorough review of your child's educational history, pertinent testing, pertinent testing, and current school situation. For younger students or students who are very resistant to changing schools, we may do a home visit or tutoring sessions to build a relationship with your child before we embark on the school placement process.

STEP 2: Understand the bigger picture

Once we get to know your child, our second objective is to help you understand how your child and his or her needs fit into the bigger picture. We will give you an overview of the types of schools and services that exist in the DC area and draw on our expertise as classroom teachers to provide insight into what types of educational settings would work best for your child. Based on your feedback and further discussion, we will then craft a list of area schools that we feel would be a good fit for your child and your family.

STEP 3: Serve as advocates for you and your child

As the process of school selection and evaluation moves forward, our third objective is to serve as advocates for you and your child as you visit schools and complete the application process. We will help you navigate the often overwhelming world of private school admissions and facilitate communication between you and the school staff.

Choosing a school can be a daunting task, especially if your child learns differently or has not met with success in traditional educational settings. If your child is anxious about school or has lost confidence in their abilities, let us help renew your hope. The DC metropolitan area has over 100 independent schools that offer success and happiness to all kinds of children and all kinds of learners. We know and love these special schools; let us introduce you!
