Our Process

Understand your needs as a family and what schools are looking for:

  • Your values in education
  • Who your child is as a person and a learner
  • The overall application process

An informal evaluation of the child by the consultant.

  • Younger kids will be led through activities.
  • Grades 5+ will be assessed via an interview and a diagnostic exam designed to evaluate their skills and curriculum retention.

A meeting between parents and their consultant to discuss the assessment/diagnostic results and to brainstorm a school list. 

Our writing specialist, Lisa Schalk, will work with families to craft a long, standard essay that can be adapted per school specific questions.

Consultants will meet with each family and guide them through standard interview questions as well as how to approach them with their desired school values in mind.

An evaluation of every meeting you’ve had thus far, both with SCK consultants and with schools. We assess how your ranking and preferences may have shifted throughout the process, and work together to create a strategy in anticipation of notifications.
