With the wealth of available summer opportunities, choosing an enjoyable and beneficial placement for your child can be challenging. Independent educational consultants help you find the perfect fit by combining personal attention to each student's interests, educational needs, and summer goals with firsthand experience with a wide variety of summer programs. Consultants provide vital support as you weigh such factors as location, cost, program focus, and, in some cases, admission considerations. Whether you're exploring academic or enrichment sessions, recreational or athletic camps, special-interest programs, travel programs, or programs for children with learning disabilities or special needs, a consultant will help match the student with a worthwhile and fun summer program.
Parents who also have an interest in private school placement may receive counsel from many of these same consultants, providing such educational services as private school admissions counseling, test preparation, and academic tutoring.
