Who We Are


Bennett International Education Consultancy is the recognized leader in customized education consulting services for both private clients and corporations all over the world.  Founded in 1991, we’re a WBENC-certified company, headquartered in Philadelphia and New York, with a team of over 70 consultants worldwide.  Over the years we have served thousands of families and hundreds of corporate clients — we’re tried and true.


Working with families who come to us through corporate HR/GLOBAL MOBILITY, relocation management companies or as individual private clients, we help to identify and access the “best-fit” school, PRE-K through University, for their children. Most Bennett consultants are former teachers and school administrators who bring years of experience with schools, students and parents to their Bennett work; they also understand the differences between country education systems and know how to counsel families on both long and short-term education issues as they move between different countries or even from one school to another in their hometown.


For our corporate clients, Bennett’s specialized Education Research and Analysis team provides customized consulting on a range of education issues:  policy benchmarking, tuition studies, education site assessments, group move planning, and remote location solutions; and our Scholarship Programs team guides organizations in setting up and administering student scholarship programs—everything from helping create a mission statement to overseeing an application process to mentoring and reporting on students who receive scholarship funds.

A welcoming message from Bennett International CEO, Elizabeth Sawyer.





To provide the finest school placement and education advisory services to families and to corporations, and to do so with unparalleled expertise, professionalism and dedication.



We believe in the uniqueness of each student and are committed to supporting each family we work with as fully and professionally as possible. We believe that our background as teachers – our experience with schools, students and their parents – combined with ongoing professional training and development, prepares us to provide unparalleled support to the families and students we serve. We honor the respect and the trust that our corporate and family clients place in us, and we dedicate ourselves to providing expert guidance at all times.

Mission and Philosophy
Management Team



The Bennett team comprises more than 70 consultants located all over the world. Typically, consultants are education professionals who bring both their knowledge about education and their experience working with students and families to their Bennett consulting work. Many are multilingual, with international living and working experience, and they understand the concerns and issues faced by relocating families. As part of their Bennett work, they are constantly visiting schools and universities, and their first-hand knowledge of academic institutions complements their Bennett training in counseling families regarding student placement.
