Choices, Decisions, and Actions
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 is fortunate to have fantastic schools from private to public but narrowing the options to find one best tailored for your child's need can be daunting.
Fisk Educational Consulting simplifies the process by selecting and advising on schools that fit your child's ability and potential, combined with your goals. We provide school choices so you can make an informed decision before taking action.
We travel year-round visiting schools and programs specifically in North Carolina and throughout the United States meeting 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 in order to identify the student best program for your child.
Building School Knowledge
Each family situation is unique as is their child so we take the time to understand your goals and desired outcomes. Our free initial consultation will determine how we can help your family. Our services and fees are priced accordingly.
