Traditional Educational Planning

McMillan’s educational counselors bring decades of experience working inside the country’s top independent schools and colleges to our highly personalized educational planning process. As seasoned educators ourselves, we know that the educational match is critical to propelling a student to success. So we partner with your family to assess your child’s strengths, interests, needs and potential to facilitate the best educational or program fit. And we stay current with educational and admission trends, visiting hundreds of campuses and programs across the country, while dozens of admissions officers visit us in Boston every year. Our long-standing relationships with school admissions officers will become the cornerstone of our effective advocacy for you, too.

The personal and caring relationship we develop with all of our college-bound candidates informs our step-by-step guidance through the increasingly complex application process, all of which unfolds via our W.I.S.E. Method of Educational Planning delivered on our custom-designed state-of-the-art online platform. Relationships are the foundation on which we create and deliver our unique educational plan for you. Many McMillan Education students who have experienced this individualized service and expertise return for counseling through the next phase of their educational planning journey. Even those who have successfully navigated the undergraduate admissions process are relieved to discover McMillan Education’s specialized guidance through the daunting complexity and intensity of graduate-level applications. Since 1955 McMillan Education has helped hundreds of students of all ages and abilities from around the world find the right educational fit.
