My mission is to provide information, increase motivation for personal growth, and promote teamwork between students and their families. This process will lead to maximizing each student’s potential for college admission. Our main goal is to help students express who they are, and who they wish to become.
With over 30 years of experience as a Reading Specialist, Middle School Director, Director of Admissions, and Educational Consultant, Barbara Leventhal is passionate about helping students find success through learning and exploration.
As Barbara knows from experience, grades and test scores do not adequately describe the unique qualities of each student. Rather, she believes that the secret to student success is helping them discover their unique aptitudes, passions, and motivations. Barbara’s approach not only encourages students to identify these strengths and inspirations, but engages them to harness this power to solve real problems.
The result? A true sense of fulfillment gained by “doing” — by creating solutions and contributing value to lives and to the community. Barbara works with each student to help them understand themselves; and this is what truly sets them apart from other applicants and defines the road ahead.
Barbara is a member of the Independent Educational Consultants Association, National Association of College Admissions Counselors, and the Small Boarding Schools Association.
