With the primary goal of finding the right independent boarding or day school where the student can thrive, McMillan Education is committed to the process of getting to know the family and student as well as possible, then partnering with them to explore a range of compatible educational settings.
Our extensive experience in independent boarding and day schools has resulted in our long-standing relationships with admission directors and admission teams within New England, nationally, and worldwide. Admission officials know and respect McMillan's deep understanding of children and adolescents and our equally deep knowledge of the schools themselves that ultimately comprise a candidate’s list because they provide the best potential educational fit for that unique student.
Because our established reputation supports a climate of trust with school and admission officers, we are able to ensure that students’ strengths, interests, potential, and needs are represented in the school application process in the best possible light and with the integrity and honesty school admission officials can expect of McMillan Education.
For nearly six decades, McMillan has helped students and families experience the unique advantages of a boarding school education. In addition to the exceptional academic programs, small class size, and favorable student-faculty ratio that characterize independent schools generally, boarding schools provide distinct opportunities for student growth that many families deliberately choose.
For some families, the independent day school educational journey begins as early as pre-kindergarten, generally when the child is age four in the Fall. From there, families seek our assistance at the natural points of next-school planning for middle or high school, or upon realizing that their child’s current school, whether independent or public, is not the right educational match.
