Over the past months, starting from March, we have been receiving calls from anxious Manhattan parents who are seeking private schools for their children in Westchester and Lower Fairfield Counties. Real estate companies, relocation companies, executive assistants, and nannies have been calling us for admissions advice and placement. Some wish to temporarily rent and eventually return while others are purchasing homes for permanent residencies and seeking not to return to Manhattan.
The sudden surge in demand for private schools in these areas has increased the competition for entrance to these schools. Additionally, the simultaneous en masse relocations have increased the numbers of parents seeking transfer outside of the normal admissions season which ended in April. Since schools have limited seats this has exacerbated the competition.
My team and I have visited many schools throughout Westchester and Fairfield Counties. Here are lists of the top private schools in Westchester/Lower Fairfield Counties:

Dr. Lowe’s Private School Visits: Other independent educational consultants may depend on telephonic interviews, group speed meetings in central locations, or simply read literature and review websites and repeat it to families. I physically visit schools and actively interact with school admissions personnel, senior administrators and students. My clients are, therefore, placed in the most appropriate school for their (and their parents’) happiness. My approach ensures that your child will be placed in the best and most appropriate top-choice school. By understanding, analyzing and researching a specific school’s atmosphere, vibe, rhythm, tone, color, experience, culture diversity and mission, my team and I can clearly articulate what differentiates one school from another to consumers/families.
