XII.  Our Fees


Our fees reflect our acceptance rate (of 97% or higher) and the value of our admissions success.


When people call us and are simply shopping for a cheap price, we remind them of the adage: "You get what you pay for!"  Cheap prices mean less experience, less involvement with clients and higher rejection and waitlist rates.


Top U.S. day and private schools are selective and reject applicants each year.  Our fees are simply a choice whether you, as a parent, wish to have your child rejected or not.
