SEMINARS: Advice from experts and insiders

We’ve taken 25 years of research, unparalleled insight, and advice from education and child development experts to bring you four compact seminars on choosing and getting into the best-fit school.

12:30 - 1:30 pm

Navigating the school search

Not all schools are the same. This seminar walks through the critical things to consider when exploring options, including curriculum/programs, leadership, school culture, admissions and eligibility.

2:00 - 3:00 pm

Q&A with School Leadership

Listen as our editor asks school leadership challenging questions about their programs, values, and student goals. Walk away with an understanding of schools not even an open house tour can provide.

3:00 - 3:45 pm

Lessons Learned

Hear directly from parents and alumni about why they chose specific schools, and things they wished they'd known before enrolling.


Find the Best-Fit School

Your child is unique. Hence, the quest to find the best-fit school, a second home where their minds will be shaped, their horizons broadened, is pivotal.

But will the school meet your expectations? Can it truly cultivate your child's unique capabilities?

While online resources offer valuable insights, they can't always replicate the in-depth understanding that comes from in-person conversations.

This is why we invite you to meet and engage with school admissions—face-to-face—and to experience the ambiance, ethos, and spirit that form the school's essence. Come and see for yourself where your child will not just grow, but truly flourish and excel.

It’s really hard to know which school is the ‘best’ choice… we attended open houses, looked online…we’ve narrowed it to two choices. After the conversations we had here [at the expo], the decision is clear. We’re so happy we made the time to attend…it absolutely helped!” —Scott Lander

What to expect

When you arrive, your family will receive a welcome package (one per ticket holder), complete with a workbook, questions to ask schools, red flags to look out for, and access to online reviews and school comparison tools.

Expert speakers, school admission teams, and current parents and alumni have been carefully selected to ensure you’re armed with the information and tools to set your child up for success.
