Bennett works directly with many families who engage us privately to support them through a school search for their children; they may be interested in preschools, private day schools, boarding schools, colleges and universities, or schools with particular program offerings such as special needs support.
PRE-K THROUGH SECONDARY SCHOOL
This service is for families who need personalized, child-centric school placement counseling for their children. Bennett consultants work directly with families to find the most appropriate education environment and “best-fit” school for each child they serve, anywhere in 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.
SPECIAL EDUCATION NEEDS
Special Education Needs (SEN) students are students with learning or physical challenges, as well as those who may be gifted and talented. The Bennett consultant network includes professionals with Special Education degrees and experience who provide personalized education counseling to SEN students and their families. They are qualified to review testing materials, evaluations and diagnosis information to make informed recommendations about appropriate placement for the students they serve. Furthermore, Bennett consultants serve as advocates for each student’s unique needs..
COLLEGE & UNIVERSITY
This service is for students seeking college or university admission. It is helpful to secondary school students who feel they would benefit from support beyond what their current school can provide; it is also helpful to students who have taken time off from studies and need help getting back on track; and it is ideal for accompanying partners of international assignees who wish to pursue university study while on assignment.
Bennett provides comprehensive personalized support through the entire university selection and application process. Counseling typically begins a full year or more in advance of the desired admission date, though unexpected relocations do not always permit this.
