Boarding schools

The best way to get into an elite college is by attending an elite high school. Elite American private schools offer a well-rounded education along with superior opportunities to develop personal interests and talents through extracurricular activities and sports programs. Moreover, these schools have partnerships with many top American universities, giving their students special access to various research and internship positions. This gives students  a competitive advantage when applying to colleges in the United States and abroad.

However, applying to American private schools can be a confusing process, especially for those unfamiliar with the American education system. Besides test scores, most schools require personal statements, letters of recommendation, transcripts, activity lists, and more. Hermiona’s team of experts knows that the process can be daunting. We help our clients through every step — from choosing the right school for their student to crafting the perfect admissions essays, to coaching students to rock their interviews.


Our services are personalized, easy-to-use, and delivered by experts who care about each student’s success. We know that getting into boarding school is not easy, but we are here to make the process smoother for both parents and students.
