Nothing is more important to you than your child’s education. Since 1991, Bennett has been helping families all over the world find the best-fit school for their children, whatever and wherever it may be. Our consultants are seasoned education experts who know all about kids and schools, and they always begin their work with a family by understanding who the child is—who they are and what they need. We help you plan for the long-term, in addition to your immediate needs, and we help with everything from recommending schools to reviewing applications.
PRE-K THROUGH SECONDARY SCHOOL
Whether you are looking for your child’s first school or next school, we provide child-centric support to identify an environment that will be the best fit for this next chapter. We can support you in your exploration of public, private, parochial, day and boarding schools all over the world.
There are over 600 boarding schools in the United States alone and, like all schools, they have individual missions and cultures, in addition to different curricula and program offerings.
Bennett consultants visit boarding schools regularly and meet with their admissions teams; they know the differences between schools and their programs and cultures, and they understand how important it is to achieve the right fit, particularly for a student who will be living away from home.
We can help put your mind at rest that your child has found the right home away from home.
SPECIAL EDUCATION NEEDS
If your child has a special need, you likely feel all the more dedicated to finding the right school environment that will provide the care and support needed. We always say that, while it’s important to get the best-fit school for every child, it’s all the more critical for those students who have a SEN diagnosis, including those labeled gifted or talented.
The Bennett consultant team includes experts with Special Education degrees who provide highly personalized education counseling on behalf of SEN students. They are qualified to review testing materials, evaluations and diagnoses in order discuss a student’s particular needs with school personnel and to make fully informed professional recommendations to a family.
COLLEGE & UNIVERSITY
There are hundreds of colleges and universities around the world, and it can be a daunting task for students to know where to apply, how good their chances are of admission at each institution, and how best to navigate the application process.
Bennett’s expert college & university consultants support students who feel they would benefit from support beyond what their current school can provide or for those who have taken time off from studies and need help getting back on track; it’s also ideal for students who may be applying to college or university in a foreign country and need help understanding the options and navigating an unfamiliar process.

A gap year, or gap semester, offers a compelling option for graduating high school students to embrace a passion, explore an interest, or enhance a talent. Long part of the educational tradition in many countries around the world, the gap year experience is increasingly popular among American students. Students who have taken a gap year often perform better academically in college and report greater job satisfaction than their peers.
Bennett Gap Year experts offer students an understanding of gap year programs and an assessment of which of the myriad options would best meet their specific needs, goals, and interests. Whether your focus is a cross-cultural or domestic experience, whether you are interested in volunteering or earning a wage, whether you prefer a structured program or the freedom to create your own schedule, our consultants will guide the conversation and identify the optimal program for you.
"Our consultant’s empathy to understand our state-of-mind as parents of two kids with diverse educational requirements was remarkable - she almost stepped into our shoes as parents for our children... she struck an instant rapport with my wife and me in the first session itself, which made our discussions very effective. She went over-and-above... demonstrating a focused customer-centric approach. Our consultant was flexible to accommodate time-zone differences and my busy travel schedule... my wife and I were extremely pleased with our consultant’s methodical and empathetic approach in providing us this consultation - thank you very much!!"
