WHY WORK WITH GLOBAL ACADEMIC CONSULTANTS?

Global Academic Consultants (GAC) is a boutique consulting firm that assists both domestic and international students with the admissions process to education programs and institutions around the globe. We provide comprehensive services for students applying to private day schools; college preparatory, nurturing, therapeutic, and military residential schools (boarding schools); summer programs and study abroad programs; colleges and universities; and graduate and professional programs (law school, medical school, aviation school, etc.). We also assist both young students and teenagers who have challenges (learning, psychological, emotional, behavioral) with placement in academic therapeutic programs, wilderness therapy programs, and inpatient psychiatric programs. For those high school students who do not wish to pursue a traditional college education, we assist with the application process to vocational, technical, and trade schools. 

Each year, colleges and universities accept fewer student applicants than the previous year. This makes it increasingly difficult for students to gain acceptance to college. Additionally, traditional boarding schools have become extremely competitive, and in some regards are more difficult to gain admission to than colleges. Therefore, it is critical that students be as prepared as possible for the academic admissions process. This means that their applications must clearly define their successes, attributes, capabilities, and goals. It is no longer adequate to merely complete applications and write effective essays; the student must submit applications that effectively brand and package the student to gain the attention of admissions representatives who review thousands of applications on behalf of students who are just as accomplished as your child.

Sending your student to a school that requires an application process can be overwhelming for many parents. Choosing the best school for your child’s future, and understanding admissions criteria and deadlines, can be time-consuming, confusing, and exhausting. Missing a simple deadline, or failing to submit the correct application information, can postpone your student’s admission by a full academic year.

Global Academic Consultants recognizes your student’s individuality and capabilities. We do not use cookie-cutter consulting methods, but instead develop an individualized plan for each student. Unlike most of our competitors, we do not have specific recruitment agreements with any institutions, nor do we receive financial compensation of any kind from the schools we recommend to our students. Therefore, we are focused on presenting students with academic options that are truly the best fit for the student.
