We work with national and international families to confidently navigate American college, private school, and enrichment program admissions. We establish intimate relationships with each of our families and conduct ongoing extensive research to ensure the highest quality guidance. We show students how to realize their own stories and put them into writing. Lyceum consultants bring to the table the wisdom that they’ve gained through long careers as teachers, administrators, admissions officers, and parents in the country’s best schools.

Lyceum provides a thorough family consultation, including a formal student motivation and personality assessment and a complete review of application materials. After the initial assessment, we provide “24/7” access to consultants via phone, text, and email. Our insider wisdom regarding the application and admissions process–including school list preparation, correspondance support, letter of recommendation optimization, academic coaching, student and parent interview preparatio and essay support, including coaching, workshopping, and editing. Once school decisions are made we offer school selection, revisit, and waitlist support.
