It is crucial for your family to determine what type of secondary school is best for your son or daughter. Public or private? Large or small? Day or boarding? Urban or rural? Co-ed or single gender? Remember, secondary schools vary in many ways—academic rigor, size, structure, program, location. Our Secondary School Counselor will help you navigate all of these variables to determine what kind of school may be best for your child and your family.
For every student, secondary schools should fall into a category—reach schools, those deemed reasonable, and those that fall in between. It is important to cast a wide net when first looking at possible schools, targeting and visiting at least two from each of those categories before narrowing your list. Our Secondary School Counselor will provide the objectivity you will need to put together a list that meets your family’s needs and standards.
Getting ready to move on to secondary school is an exciting time for your son or daughter, filled with anticipation, enthusiasm, and optimism. It can also cause some frustration, pressure, anxiety, and stress. The ups and downs that come with this process can be tough, so it is important to talk through the questions, frustrations, and anxieties. Our Secondary School Counselor can help lead your family to the most positive outcome possible.
