Sam_Washington_Dr_Paul_Lowe_at_Lawrenceville_School

Lawrenceville School in Lawrenceville, New Jersey is rated by Niche as:  #1 Best College Prep High School in New Jersey, #2 Best Boarding high School in New Jersey, #2 Best Private School in New Jersey.

Visiting Lawrenceville, allows my team and I to understand the vibrant school environment and talk with admissions personnel.

Lawrenceville is one of the Ten Schools. What makes it unique among other elite New England schools is that it is only one hour from Manhattan.  Its enrollment is 817 students, but appears as a smaller school because of its unique house system.

Lawrenceville is one of the most prestigious, elite and highly selective boarding schools in the world.  Its acceptance rate is 19%. Lawrenceville’s college matriculation rate to Ivy League and highly selective colleges and universities is high.

Year after year, our clients get accepted to Lawrenceville, many are local New Jersey residents, students from around the US and international students.

Boarding School Applications Increase in the 2022-2023 Admissions Season

Boarding_School_Application_Season_2022_Dr_Paul_Lowe_Admissions

Many boarding schools are reporting an increase in the number of applications.  Our firm is also experiencing an increase in inquiries regarding our boarding school admissions advisory services.  Top U.S. boarding schools including: Andover, Exeter, Lawrenceville, Choate, St. Paul’s, Hill, Taft, Loomis, Hotchkiss, Hackley, Deerfield, Thatcher, Middlesex and Groton have seen increases!

Top US Boarding Schools Dr Paul Lowe Admissions Advisor Educational Consultant

Boarding schools have seen a flurry of new interest from families who view private schools as being better equipped to provide robust instruction, given their financial resources, space and nimbleness in adapting.  As a result of this interest, the competition for coveted spots have increased. The reason is: PRESTIGE!

Earlier this year, many students who applied to top boarding schools, including Exeter, Andover, St. Paul’s and Choate were place on waitlists and were eventually notified that they could not gain entrance for the current year. In a letter to families, one boarding school stated in April, 2022: “At this time, it is clear that we will be unable to admit students from our waiting list in the near future as we anticipate being overenrolled….followed by another note in August 2022: “…we remain fully enrolled and as such, will be unable to offer admission to any students from our waiting list. I am sorry not to have better news for you and on behalf of all of my colleagues here in the admission office”.

It’s important for parents to hire an expert who understands how to successfully navigate the boarding school admissions process! After all, parents prefer their children to be accepted rather than rejected or placed on a waitlist.

Over the last month or so, our New Jersey affiliate: New Jersey Admissions Advisors, has been receiving many calls from parents who reside in New Jersey who are choosing to have their children transfer from public schools and apply to private high schools in New Jersey.

In New Jersey, the competition to gain admissions to top private high schools is heating up this year – 2022   As more and more parents discover the major challenges in suburban high schools:  (a) large class sizes, (b) not much flexibility when it comes to curriculum (c) they are under more bureaucratic red tape when it comes to regulations and rules, (d) larger school counselor-student ratio;  they are willing to forgo public school education (and pay tuition), which increases the application pool and competition to gain admissions into coveted slots.

Boarding School Admissions Season 2022-2023

Top US Boarding Schools Dr Paul Lowe Admissions Advisor Educational Consultant

It is hard to believe that the 2022-2023 boarding school admissions season is here! Just 5 months ago our clients were receiving their acceptance notifications to schools like Exeter, Andover, Choate, Deerfield, Lawrenceville, Taft, Deerfield, Loomis, Hotchkiss and similar top schools. Blog: Elite Boarding Schools Matter.

We are receiving email inquiries and phone calls from parents who are inquiring about retaining the services of an educational consultant for direct admissions to the ninth grade or for reapplication (because their child was rejected or waitlisted during the last admissions cycle.  Many parents who called us were quite surprised when their child was either outright rejected or placed on (perpetual) waitlists last season.

It’s important to note that this admissions cycle (2022-2023) will be hypercompetitive (domestic applications are expected to be up by 30 percent). Why? Because more parents became aware of the benefits and multiple advantages of a boarding school education for their children. A published article in the New York Times, “The Boarding-School Boom” confirmed what we have been advising our clients who have been accepted to top boarding schools… there is now hyper-competition in boarding school admissions.  Additionally, because of the high rejection (and waitlists) last year, more students are reapplying for ninth grade as well as 10th grade spots.

Many parents who believed that their child would be elevated from the waitlist had to have their children attend a public school for the 9th grade and reapply for the 9th or 10th grade.

Successful boarding school admissions requires expertise and experience to understand how to manage risks, navigate pitfalls, design the right admissions strategies, and most importantly understand the admissions policies and professionals who are making admissions decisions – in other words an admissions expert.

Parents need a trusted resource to help them navigate the fast-paced and highly-selective admissions process!
