Helping organizations provide education services to their staff


Smart City Kids is the leading educational consulting firm that helps families identify New York City private and public school options for their children. Smart City Kids was the first and is the longest running consulting firm in New York dedicated to providing admissions advice for families seeking placement, from Nursery School through College admissions and including special needs. It is the organization that schools, non-profits, corporations, and agencies that serve children and families go to for in-depth advice and customized insights into the complicated and competitive process of admissions.

With a deep understanding of all parties negotiating school choice, we are uniquely equipped to provide corporations and agencies with a range of consulting services. Moving to New York City with children can be extremely overwhelming, so we have assisted corporations with providing educational relocation services for any new talent they were trying to recruit from around the world. We also provide corporations and agencies with workshops on how to successfully navigate the admissions and financial aid process at any point of a child’s educational career.

We can tailor any workshop or service to meet your company’s needs.

Currently, Smart City Kids operates as the sole educational advising and placement agency that New York University and Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center go to for advice and support when recruiting talented staff.
