But another advantage lies in what comes after high school — with many top boarding and day schools such as Phillips Academy Andover and Exeter, Deerfield Academy, Choate Rosemary Hall, Groton and more being feeder schools to the Ivy League and other top universities.

Our experienced boarding and day school counselors help students narrow down their best fit schools in a comprehensive list that aligns with the student's longer term goals (including college admissions). They also support families in communicating with schools to plan campus visits, attend admissions events and schedule interviews.
