6th Grade

"We reached out to The Admissions Plan at the end of February when the regular application season already ended. It seemed that it would be impossible to get into an ideal school for the coming school year. However, Julie and Sharon made the impossible possible. With

their professional guidance through every application step and close connection with schools, the application process turned out to be very clear and smooth. What impressed us most is

that they managed to get to know our family’s needs immediately and helped us narrow down to the school that suited us, saving us lots of time and energy. And Julie’s amiability gained our daughter’s trust from the very first meeting, she was able to open up and benefited a lot through several mock interviews. We truly appreciate what they have done for us."

They were invaluable with helping us find available openings, and were an excellent guide throughout the application process, keeping us very organized. We highly recommend The Admissions Plan, whether it’s to learn more about the NYC private schools to find the right fit for your child or to help support you through the entire admissions season!"

"Relocating from Australia, my husband and I were very happy with the support and service that Julie provided our family. She gave clear and valuable guidance on the complicated admissions process. She was responsive and professional in reviewing our materials,  provided us timetables and  reminders, and was thorough in her assessment of our needs and the cultural fit of our family with the various schools. We were excited to ultimately receive a large number of acceptances for both of our children and are looking forward to starting the school year! I would happily recommend The Admission Plan to prospective parents!"

We really appreciated the fact that she made the whole process easy and we also appreciated her kindness as well as her professionalism. We were so lucky to have found Sharon and gotten her help.

"Thanks for all of your help throughout the process!  We clearly had no idea what we were doing when we first spoke to you in the fall (and we were already late in the process) so it was super helpful getting your insight and helping us navigate everything!"

8th Grade

"Sharon and Julie are very professional. They treated our son's application as if it were their own child's application. More than anything else, they care. Our son was applying for 8th grade which is not an easy entry point, and it was especially difficult as he was switching from public to private school. With their help, our son applied to 3 schools, was admitted to 2, and was waitlisted at the third. No rejections!  We are glad that we found Sharon and Julie, and we strongly recommend them to you."

"Sharon is extremely conscientious, very responsive, and hard-working. She knows the New York private school admissions world the way Lebron James knows basketball. She will advocate thoughtfully for your children helping them to find the school where they will thrive. I recommend her without reservation.

2nd Grade

"We wanted to make the switch from public to private but had very little understanding of everything that goes into a private school application. Hiring

an educational consultant was the best decision we made. You were highly organized, know the NYC private schools, and were very responsive to all

of our questions, no matter how many

we asked! You were a true partner, and our daughter couldn't be happier at her new school. We recommend The Admissions Plan without hesitation!"

"The process of finding a suitable school

in NYC can be incredibly overwhelming, particularly for families relocating from overseas. Sharon and Julie gave us outstanding support in every step of the way, exceeding our most optimistic expectations. Their suitable advice, guidance, support and encouragement were critical in helping us secure superb options in such a competitive admissions process. They truly care and made the whole experience enjoyable."

Relocating from Madrid

Preschool

"We were desperately in need of guidance and help, and we got really lucky that we found The Admissions Plan. Sharon and Julie were so kind to take us on even though it was late in the application season. What really amazed us was their professionalism and quick responsiveness. They always picked up calls from us, and not a single email from us was not replied to within the same day. Since they are in close contact with admissions departments from almost all NYC private schools, all the information, guidance, and answers we got from them was super helpful, and they were really patient explaining things in detail and making the whole application process so much easier for us. They also sent us reminder emails to make sure that we were on schedule with our applications, and gave us all the advice and support we needed. We truly appreciate all they have done for us, and we would absolutely recommend The Admissions Plan if you need a private school consultant. They are the BEST."

"I am a parent of a 4 year old applying for kindergarten. I was very overwhelmed and the process of getting into independent schools is super stressful. I found The Admissions Plan on Google and I called Sharon. She gave me her time, empathy and valuable advice on the next step without asking me for a fee upfront.

I cannot thank her enough and I'm grateful that I contacted someone who cares. In this day and age where business is business, I think Sharon is a gem. I have no doubt that Sharon will give far more than what you pay for just based on our conversation alone. I am very grateful and you will be too.”
