EDUCATIONAL & CONCIERGE SERVICES
Global Academic Consultants has a tremendously high success rate of placing students at their top-choice schools.
Admissions AssistanceAround the globe, there are many high-quality and elite boarding schools, colleges and universities, and graduate and professional programs from which to choose. Not every school, however, is the best fit for your student. Our trained consultants take the time to get to know your student’s personality, interests, and future goals. We help to identify the institutions that will provide the best learning and social environment for your student. Once the institutions are selected, our consultants work with your family to explain the application process, admissions requirements, pertinent deadlines, and other details relevant to the specific institutions. We guide your student through the admissions process, including essay writing, standardized test registration, resume development, mock interviews, social media evaluation, and more.
