   E.  We are NOT an International Student Recruitment Agency or Agent, a company (agency) or individual (agent) contracted and paid by private schools to advise and recruit students to those institutions. Usually, the agency/agent is paid by its partner private school only if and after a referred student enrolls and begins taking classes. This payment is often a  percentage of a student’s tuition fees, or a flat rate, and is called a commission.

   F.  We are professionals hired and paid only by parents for personalized advice on the private school admission process; we are NOT paid by or contracted by any private school.  Therefore, after retaining us, our clients have a CHOICE as to which elite private school they wish attend.  For more information, please visit:  International Private School Admissions Services
