School Placement Consulting: 

One of our expert Educational Consultants will give the family recommendations for private or parochial schools that are the best fit for the transferee’s child.  Their services include evaluating school records, locating appropriate schools that either have space in the appropriate grade level or could possibly make a space available, assisting with the application process and advocating for the child with the admissions directors.  (Note:  Private school admission is highly competitive in the San Francisco/San Jose Bay Area, often with many qualified applicants for each available space.  The application process is much like that for top colleges and universities.  Therefore, we recommend applying to several schools, including at least one that is a “fallback” or “safety” school where admission is very likely.)
