WHY CHOOSE US
Your child's high school counselor likely has a high student case load, making it difficult to provide the time, attention and guidance for tailored advice for each student. That's why families turn to independent educational consultants. Since 2015, South Bay Educational Consultants has been helping students successfully navigate their high school journey and reaching their highest potential. Our clients benefit from the personal relationship that they build with their primary consultant, while knowing that they have our team's depth and breadth of experiences and perspectives as well.
From freshman through senior year, the student’s choice of high school classes and extracurricular activities, along with grades and testing, can all have a significant impact on the selection of colleges and, ultimately, where the student actually goes for four years. We understand the stress, anxiety and confusion that surround the high school to college process and have the expertise to guide your student along the college path to success.
Our team of independent educational consultants subscribe to and are governed by the highest ethical standards in the college admissions process. We attend conferences, visit colleges, and stay abreast of changes in the college admissions industry. We do not write essays or make guarantees of acceptance to a particular school. Not only is that dishonest, it is unethical. With our guidance, the student is in the driver's seat, and we step into the role of the "project manager"...so you don't have to be the "bad guy!"
