Educational Consulting

Friedrichs Education can find that right student-school “fit,” at the elementary-to-graduate school levels. Call us today to help us find the right fit, or the right gifted or special-needs plan, for your student!

We can:

  • Assess interests, preferences, and academic skills.
  • Find lists of schools that are “good matches,” across all essential factors, for your child.
  • “Dig up” hard-to-find information about schools being considered most carefully.
  • Prepare research questions with which students and parents can investigate listed schools, on-site or on-line.
  • Help families assess site-visit outcomes and overall school quality.
  • Guide students to complete applications, including forms and essays.

We have an excellent track record, over 30 years, in helping students toward good matches, for all kinds of schools, at all age levels! References available upon request.
