Our mission is to create happy, capable, confident, life-long learners and the school selection process is where this journey truly begins. Our school placement team’s vast understanding of how children learn ensures that you are equipped with the necessary knowledge to make the best educational decision for your child, so that they may thrive in their school setting.

With seemingly endless school options, a major financial investment, and your child’s educational career on the line, it is essential that our team of educational experts help you make the best school choice for your child and your family. Our knowledge and training goes far beyond that of a traditional school placement consultant; our team has decades of experience in the classroom, working with educational psychologists, administering Learning Checkups™, and teaming up with learning specialists and admissions officers to ensure that each individual learner’s needs are met. On top of this, our team operates a learning center that serves students from all over the Atlanta area on a daily basis. Our in-depth experience in education, coupled with our unique understanding of school placement empowers you, as parents, to make the right educational decision for your child from the start. 

Our school placement package process:

1) To assess your child’s unique learning profile, through our Learning Checkup™, in order to fully understand their specific cognitive and educational needs;

2) To gain knowledge from all perspectives, including you, as parents, current teachers, and any others that you believe could help to paint a picture of your child’s needs and your family’s core values.

3) To combine all of this information together in order to make the most personalized school recommendations possible;

4) To help you navigate the admissions process, from school selections and visits to submitting applications and reviewing decisions.

We recognize the enormity of the responsibility you grant us as educational consultants for your child and appreciate the opportunity to serve your family. 

Warmly, Katie Cyphers, Elizabeth Silverstein, and the Academics Plus team
