Areas of Focus

Each student brings to the school or college planning process his or her own unique passions, strengths, and needs. McMillan Education consultants understand that these qualities play a critical role in finding the educational environment where the student is most likely to grow toward his or her fullest potential. Because being an artist, musician, or athlete, or having a distinctive learning style that creates its own challenges or opportunities, is most often an integral aspect of the student’s identity, we bring these qualities to the center of our process of exploring the best school or college match for that student.
