Boarding School Tours: An Important Way Educational Consultants Stay Connected

We write a fair amount and answer a lot of e-mail about educational consulting- what is it and is it worth it?

Our answer begins with, “well it’s more complicated than that, but, if you have a situation that warrants professional consultation, then by all means consider a consultant.” Professional evaluation can prove invaluable.

One thing that we highlight when talking about consultants are the ways that they stay connected to boarding schools.

Today we found a great example to show one of the ways that consultants stay current- school tours. Independent Educational Consultants Association and schools offer tours every year. Consultants visit campuses, meet students and faculty, and, most importantly, get a feel for a school’s daily life.

These are the tours that boarding school consultants will be taking this spring around their professional conference.
