How We Help

Expert advice, guidance, and support through the NYC schools admissions process.

A Legacy of Success: Almost all full service families are admitted to their first choice school


For the past twenty years, Smart City Kids advisors have successfully guided parents and children though the admissions process for entrance into NYC Independent and Public Schools. We support families at all stages of their children's educational journey, from nursery school through college and also including special education.


Smart City Kids works with Independent Schools throughout NYC. We provide customized services to meet the demands of a range of programs, from newly established schools to long-standing institutions. We work on transitions in leadership, staffing needs, admissions and exmissions, marketing, communications, and messaging.


We provide workshops to comprehensively explain the admissions and financial aid processes. We customize these workshops to address the needs of each community and can offer workshops geared towards nursery school, Kindergarten, and Middle and High School. We also support corporations when they are recruiting new talent by helping to find schools for the relocating families.

I’m so happy I chose to work with Smart City Kids. From the initial consultation all the way through the conclusion, the service I received was impeccable and the end result really brought my vision to life.

From the moment you meet Roxana it’s clear she knows what she is doing. She was able to demystify the admissions process and strategize realistic targets in a way that left us feeling confident and ultimately delivered the results we had hoped for. Together with her team, we were supported from start to finish.
