What do private admissions consultants do?

Private admissions consultants provide personalized guidance and support to Bay Area families seeking entry to private schools and colleges. We help in navigating the complex and competitive admissions process that parents often find stressful and confusing. The consulting process typically begins with assessing a student’s academic background, extracurricular activities, and personal interests to determine the best-fit schools that align with the family’s goals and values. Throughout the process, admissions consultants help students highlight their strengths and unique qualities

At Cardinal Education, our admissions consultants offer tailored advice and design admissions strategies that add value to a student’s portfolio making sure they stand out from the rest. Our services include tutoring for academic improvement, extracurricular activity planning, standardized test preparation, guidance in writing admissions essays, personal statements and parent statements, interview preparation, and securing strong recommendation letters. Additionally, we also prepare students for the Character Skills Snapshot and Proctored Writing Sample, which is an application requirement for most of the private schools in the Peninsula.  

Our expert consultants bring a wealth of knowledge and experience to help families navigate the admissions process and increase their chances of securing acceptance into the best private schools in the Bay Area.
