Description

Overview of Position

On the surface, Education Consultants work with Grade 7 to post-graduate students to help them apply for boarding schools, undergraduate programs, and graduate programs. While that’s our most basic and essential service, it’s really just the finish line.

For students who are looking for more than just guidance on the application process, we help mentor and coach them in their journey to arrive at the application process as the best version of themselves. At times, this can feel like the steady pace of running a marathon, and other times there are intense bursts of speed that feel like sprints. While destinations may be shared, it’s the path of getting there that matters to us most. We value the journey just as much as the destination, if not more.

In short, we help students craft their application strategy as an end goal. To achieve that, we nurture their growth through various ways and opportunities to not only help them stand out as an applicant but also develop their character, values, worldview, and abilities. We support our students as big brothers and sisters, and we strive to give and teach them the things we wish we had or learned when we were their age.
