College Admissions Consulting

We at Garrett Educational Consulting work closely with both the student and parents throughout the college application process to determine the type of schools that will provide the best environment in which the student will thrive academically, socially, and mentally. There are countless schools to consider and pathways to take. As such, we aim to pair each student with a set of  schools that are as unique as their interests and needs. 
We encourage students to be realistic in their expectations, while simultaneously asking them to challenge themselves and seek out

goals they are willing to work for. With this in mind, we aim to dispel some of the potential stress associated with the college process by providing a clear set of instructions as well as internal deadlines. Our tailored process helps students to do all the work and more to the highest degree while still avoiding becoming overwhelmed and bogged down in the complicated aspects of college applications.

We help students:

  • Assess and refine their academic and extracurricular choices

  • Capitalize on their strengths, special talents and interests

  • Explore academic interests and related career directions, including learning strengths

  • Plan for standardized testing and organize an optimal testing schedule

  • Prepare for productive interviews and campus visits

  • Complete effective applications, with an emphasis upon personal essays

  • Develop appropriate school, college or graduate school lists based upon individual records, interests and needs​   

  • Explore domestic and foreign study programs

  • ​Suggestions for Summer enrichment activities


We help parents by:

  • Organizing the admissions process

  • Motivating the student to assume appropriate responsibility during the process

  • Serving as an accessible, impartial resource throughout the process

  • Providing accurate, up-to-date and objective information

  • Mediating within the family, as necessary
