Is a private or independent school right for your child and for your family? Many public schools do an excellent job of educating students and they do it at no additional cost. However, the benefits of an independent school education can often outweigh the costs depending on what the local public school may offer.

It’s probably not a surprise to you to hear that student angst is often on my mind. I am a college counselor after all. One thing I’ve found across cultures is that in the college application process, students experience a good amount of anxiety. Being compared to their peers, worldwide, for their achievementsputs a lot of pressure on them. Sometimes they feel like the personal improvement they have demonstrated over the years is ignored, and the happy times they may have experienced, learning, are disregarded. So they feel some anxiety, naturally. No kidding, right?
