10 Steps to Admission Success
If you grew up anywhere but New York City, the elaborate, time-consuming, and complicated process of getting your child into nursery school, middle school, or high school can seem absurdly complex: interviews, letters of recommendation, testing – none of which was required of me until I was applying to college.

NYC, the boroughs, New Jersey, and Connecticut are full of world-class schools, each with its own unique philosophy, campus, and culture.
Finding, applying to, and getting into a best-fit school doesn’t have to be a headache of an experience, but an enriching one.
