US BOARDING SCHOOLS_In_Demand_Dr_Paul_Lowe_Admissions

The COVID-19 pandemic has changed the dynamics of private school vs. boarding school education. Boarding schools, because to their immense resources and facilities are attracting U.S. as well as international families even in the midst of the pandemic! As a result of the exodus from the Manhattan private (day) school universe, students transferring from public schools (many public schools were ill-prepared for virtual classes), and the mere increased interest in the college counseling departments of these schools (for example: Phillips Exeter Academy, boarding school admissions is now even more competitive. We are seeing an increased and dramatic interest in boarding schools.

Many international as well as U.S. parents who call us are under the perception or misconception that it’s easier to gain admissions to top boarding schools – It’s not!

Based on our research, knowledge and professional working-relationships; and Niche’s “2021 Best Boarding Schools In America Ranking”, we have provided a list below to help these families who are seeking the boarding school alternative.

Manhattanites Seeking Private Schools in Westchester and Fairfield Counties

Manhattanites Seeking Private Schools in Westchester and Fairfield Counties Dr Paul Lowe Admissions Expert Independent Educational Consultant

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:

Top private schools in Westchester County:

  1. Hackley School
  2. Rye Country Day School
  3. The Masters School
  4. The Harvey School
  5. Rippowam Cisqua School

Top private schools in Lower Fairfield County:

  1. Brunswick School
  2. Greenwich Academy
  3. Greenwich Country Day
  4. Greens Farms Academy
  5. King School
  6. Sacred Heart Academy
  7. New Canaan Country Day
  8. Whitby School

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.

Private School Admissions: My Child Was Not Accepted

Private_School_Admissions_My_Child_Was_Not_Accepted_Rejected_Dr_Paul_Lowe_Admissions_Expert_Independent_Educational_Consultant

You were certain that your son would be accepted.  He had excellent grades.  He played on a great sports team. His SSAT scores were off the charts. You made sure that his school principal knew him. The Math and English teacher recommendations were amazing (you even had a parent of a student at your target school write a recommendation). You thought that your top-choice school board member’s recommendation would help. You thought that you wrote excellent parent statements and thought that his student statements were great.  The campus visit and the admissions interview, in your opinion, were also great.

However, when you gazed at your cell phone you discovered, to your surprise, that the school(s) didn’t accept your child.  WHAT HAPPENED? Where did you go wrong? What do you do now?

As a private school admissions advisor, I am now receiving calls and emails from anxious and nervous parents who thought they did everything right.

If your child was REJECTED (or WAIT-LISTED, which means that “we love your child, but we don’t have spot available today, tomorrow or perhaps NEVER”), what can you do at this stage in the process?  SOMETHING WASN’T RIGHT!

From my observation, there are six crucial potential missteps during the private school application process: (1) Parents assume that it’s all about connections.  (2) Parents and students don’t prepare enough for the interviews.  (3) Parents start too late in the admissions planning process.  (4) Parents assume that their skill sets and/or titles give them an admissions edge.  (5) Parents and students listen to incorrect advice from chat rooms, online communities and friends.  (6) Parents make the mistake of retaining an inexperienced educational consultant who is not versed in the admissions policies, diplomacy and politics of top boarding school admissions or does not even continually visit schools and know directors of admissions.

What’s my recommendation: You should now hire an expert who understands the off-waitlist process as well as the reapplication process.  It’s important to know, especially for top and elite day and boarding schools, that admissions officers review all the data, appreciate transparency and are experts in their fields.

Many parents also believe that private school admissions officers/committees focus primarily on tangible factors that are measurable and quantifiable.  The reality is that admissions officers’ emotions, feelings and value judgement play a significant role in admissions decisions.

When I work with my clients, I ensure that they are protected from the uncertainties and the unexpected in admissions. I physically visit schools and actively interact with school admissions personnel, senior administrators and therefore help my clients avoid the irrevocable mistakes that cause rejections or being placed on the “permanent” waitlist.

Advantages of Working with a Private School Expert

Applying to top private day and boarding schools is anxiety-ridden and filled with minefields.  I often hear of the mistakes parent (and their children) make during the process when they call me regarding what to do after their child has been waitlisted or rejected from their top-choice schools.

When I ask them if they had hired an admissions advisor who specialize in top day and boarding schools the answer is always no. The next question they ask is about price.  Here is the conundrum: By not hiring a qualified private school expert they have essentially saved tuition payments to their intended top school.

Here is a list of advantages of hiring a private school expert:

  • Private school experts have personal and current specialized knowledge of what boarding and day schools are all about and how to find one that would be a good fit for you and your family.
  • Private school experts know that the devil is in the details; they continually visit schools to gain first-hand experience and insight of each school’s unique perspective and workings.
  • Private school experts know what questions to ask you to assess how your application should be framed to demonstrate your child’s uniqueness, as well as how to manage themselves during their school visits.
  • Private school experts assist families with school applications and review.
  • Private school experts provide mock interview prep sessions for parent and student interviews.
  • Private school experts have the unique opportunity to learn from and interact one-on-one with the heads of schools, directors of admissions and senior admissions personnel.
  • Private school experts understand the diplomacy and advocacy needed for their clients.

Why Choose a Top Boarding School Admissions Consultant

Expert_Admissions_Advice_Dr_Paul_Lowe_Boarding_School_Advisor
    Acceptance to a top boarding school for your child is one of the most important and educational investment decisions you will ever make.  You might try to research thoroughly on your own, obtain help from friends or obtain guidance from an independent educational consultant who may not specialize in top boarding school admissions and placement.
Fees_value_investment_Dr_Paul_Lowe_Admissions_Advisor_Expert_Independent_Educational_Consultant
    We recommend that you hire a full-time professional who has had years of experience in top and elite boarding school search, admissions and placement.  Most consultants of this caliber offer full-service comprehensive packages that span over several months to a year.
    Since top boarding schools are not all the same, consultants will also advise consideration of a range of schools that are nurturing, offer cutting-edge academic experiences, learning support and experiences to prepare each student for successful futures.  Top consultants discuss the pros and cons of the more rigorous schools or might help a family decide whether to repeat a year.

    International families may NEED MORE HELP in navigating the top boarding school admissions process and placement because they or their locally-based educational agents are not aware of the continually changing admissions policies and missions of top boarding schools.

Globe_w_international_students_Dr_Paul Lowe_Admissions_Expert_Independent_Educational_Consultant

    Top boarding school admissions consultants know the inside scoop on boarding schools, and they get this through their campus visits, meetings with admissions officers, and by seeing the successes of the students they place at schools.

Is the investment in the advice of a top boarding school admissions consultant worth it?

We think so…it’s your child’s educational future!

Lawrenceville is one of the Ten Schools and 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.
