You're an individual. Individual interests. Individual talents. Individual goals. Individual dreams.
At Estrela Consulting, we'll take your interests, goals, and dreams and turn them into your future. We know schools and soon we'll know you. We don't own a cookie cutter so your results will be unique.
Whether you're a student seeking the independence and challenge of a boarding school, or a high school student with the hope of finding your collegiate niche after graduation, we can help. You're an individual and your school search should be individualized, too.
That's where we come in.
I have extensive experience in traditional boarding school and college placement having worked professionally in both areas prior to becoming an independent consultant. I served as the Assistant Director of Admission at Hiram College (OH) before moving into a role as Director of Admission and Marketing at Andrews Osborne Academy (OH).
In my previous positions, I had the opportunity to assist students with varying academic and extracurricular interests and abilities with their school search processes. These experiences were the foundation for my interest in assisting families through a process that, though seemingly complex, can also be very exciting!
I spend several weeks each year visiting campuses across the country. Click here to read my "Dooley Noted" blog, which chronicles my many campus visits. I am an Associate Member of the Independent Educational Consultants Association and have membership in the Small Boarding School Association, the Higher Education Consultants Association and the Overseas Association for College Admission Counseling.
Every family is different. Some families are seeking the unique opportunities offered by boarding schools while others are ready to begin the search for the college of their dreams. Whichever category you fall into, Estrela Consulting is here to help.
Sure, it's easy to find schools via the internet. The difference with Estrela is that, unlike your search engine, we actually visit schools and are able to note changes on each campus.
We meet with admission staff, check out new programs, and continually check for new offerings that might be of interest to you. These professional relationships can directly or indirectly benefit your family. We're pretty sure no web search can do that for you.
