Q&A Roundtables

Get more perspective on your school choices

Hear alumni and current parents field questions and share their insights into a school—including its culture, strengths, and weaknesses.



Have a school in mind? In 40 to 60 MINUTES we’ll give you perspective that took our panelists YEARS to develop.

Our panelists will reveal:

  • Why they originally chose the school, and how their perspective on the school has evolved over time
  • What they appreciate most about the school—and what they wish were different about it
  • The implicit values of the school—values you might not see touted in the glossy brochures
  • What you, as a prospective family, might find surprising about the school
  • Advice for a family/child just entering the school

  3. Hear from current parents: Q&A Roundtables Step 3

    • Attend 60-minute virtual roundtables for each school you're interested in or considering, where alumni and current students and parents will field questions and share their perspective on the school—including its culture, strengths, and weaknesses.

      We've designed our questions, for your sake, to generate insights that will guide your school search.

      Questions to be answered by alumni and current parents  
      • Alumni:

        • What did you appreciate most about the school?
        • What would you change about the school if you could?
        • What most differentiates the school from others, in your mind?
        • If the school were to become a person, what would its personality be like — in only three words?
        • What is the "typical student" like?
        • What would families find most surprising about the school?
        • What advice would you give students just entering the school?

        Current parents:

        • What do you think the school's strong points are, and where is it weakest?
        • Why did you choose the school originally? Are you happy with the choice? In what ways is the school what you expected — and in what ways is it not?
        • How would you describe the values of the school — and the values of other families?

  4. Speak directly with school admissions teams, one-on-one Step 4

    • Start a one-on-one conversation with school admissions officers. Having evaluated schools from afar, it's time to delve into details, and bring them onto your "team."

      For each potential school, book a 20-minute discovery meeting, hosted by video conference, where admissions officers will walk you through a short, structured process of getting to know you and your child, answer your questions (which may be more private or idiosyncratic in nature), and advise you on your school search.

      The meeting will begin a conversation about the suitability of the school for your child. It carries no expectations or commitment.

      Admissions officers will walk you through a structured process of getting to know you and your child.

      How schools will conduct the meeting  
        • They'll ask if you have any specific goals for the meeting, or if you're happy to follow their plan
        • They'll ask you about your child's history and current circumstances, about your reasons for seeking out a school,
        • They'll outline their initial thoughts on the possible fit for your child
        • They'll invite questions
        • They'll discuss next steps if you want to continue the conversation


      During such meetings, schools typically try to discern what environment is truly best for a child, and advise families accordingly. If you sense a school is simply pitching you, it's a red flag.

      Types of questions to ask during the meeting  
        • Ask schools about the kind of students they serve uniquely well, and how and why your child, specifically, may or may not fit that mold
        • Raise any current problems or issues your child is currently experiencing, and ask how their school may or may not address them, (be open and honest with admission officers, as they can only help you if they know your situation)
        • Ask schools about financial aid (schools are expecting you to ask, and asking will NOT affect your chance of admission)
        • Ask schools about their admissions process, and the next steps

  5. RSVP for important Open House events and tours Step 5

    • You've narrowed your sights to a few schools, and have rationally evaluated each one.

      Now it's time to personally or virtually SEE the school and get a visceral sense of life at the school through an in-person or virtual open house or tour event. We recommend you do so for all schools you're seriously considering.

      Bring your child along for the ride and aim to tune into and follow your gut reactions.
