What We Do:

Whether you are relocating, looking for an alternative to your current school or your child is just entering school for the first time, it can be overwhelming to know just where to start.  The Triangle area has fantastic schools from private to public but narrowing down the options best for your child can be daunting. 


Fisk Educational Consulting:

  • Simplifies the school search process 

  • Advises on schools that fit your child's ability, potential, and your parenting goals

  • Provide school choices so you can make an informed decision before taking action 


How We Do It:

Building Knowledge: We build our knowledge of schools by traveling year-round visiting schools and programs, specifically public and private schools in the Triangle and boarding and therapeutic programs throughout the United States.  We meet and revisit with admissions officers, counselors, teachers, and other professionals working with children and teens. While many schools seem to offer similar academics and extracurriculars we uncover their unique differentiation. 

Understanding the Child: We understand each child is unique as is each family situation so we take the time to understand your family goals and desired outcomes.  Our consultation services are based upon your family needs.
