What to Expect When You Work with an Independent Educational Consultant Association (IECA) Member Consultant

IECA member consultants are trained professionals with extensive knowledge of educational options. Their expertise, combined with a supportive, intentional approach to understanding your family, will help you identify a school that is academically, culturally, socially and financially appropriate.

There is a lot to consider when choosing the right school. An IECA member consultant will meet with your family to learn as much as possible about your student’s unique skills, interests, likes, dislikes, strengths and needs, and develop a personalized educational plan.

The independent educational consultant will then build a list of schools that could be a fit for your student. This list is based on a deep knowledge of schools, and informed by consultants’ ongoing travel to campuses, meeting with staff and current students, touring dorms, observing classes and extracurricular activities, and learning about each school’s specific identity and core values. Independent educational consultants know what questions to ask and what to see during their visits, so they can bring the right information back to you.

By taking the time to listen to your specific wants and concerns, IECA member consultants guide families through the complex process of investigating all available educational options, and find the best fit for your student, saving you energy, time and valuable resources.
