WHY USE GAC?
Each year, colleges and universities accept fewer student applicants than the previous year. This makes it increasingly difficult for students to be accepted to college, and thus critical for students to be as prepared as possible for the academic admissions process.
Sending your child to a preparatory boarding school, college/university, or professional school 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 and exhausting. Missing a simple deadline, or failing to submit the correct application information, can postpone your child’s admission by a full academic year.
Global Academic Consultants (GAC) is a boutique educational counseling firm that recognizes the student’s individuality and capabilities. We do not treat any two students the same and do not use cookie-cutter counseling methods, but instead develop an individualized plan for each student. We do not take financial incentives from educational institutions; therefore, we are focused on presenting students with academic options that are truly the best fit for the student.
