Navigating the Bay Area school landscape doesn't have to be overwhelming.

Between figuring out which of the many Bay Area schools to apply to, writing compelling admissions essays, preparing for interviews, and handling all of the possible scenarios that can arise during decision week, the admissions process can be a HIGHLY stressful and confusing time for families, especially if you don't know the ins and outs of what schools are looking for.

How to master the application and enrollment process, and tailor your applications to exactly what schools are looking for.

❓ Frequently Asked Questions

When does the course start and finish?

You can get started as soon as you enroll! There is no start date. The course is designed to follow the annual admissions cycle, but you can go at your own pace, and complete the lessons at anytime.

Will this help for high school or college admissions?

No. This course is designed for families of children entering Pre-K through 8th grade. The high school and college admissions processes differ greatly, and this course does not offer any instruction for families looking for high school or college admissions guidance.

I don't live in the Bay Area yet, but I plan to relocate. Will this course help me find a good fit school for my child?

Absolutely! The course is perfect for any family who is planning on enrolling their children into a school in the SF Bay Area, even if they don't live here yet. There are even lessons specifically for families who plan to relocate, and for families needing to enroll in the middle of the school year.

My Honest Disclaimer:

Hi. Natalie here. I want to make sure you understand this course is designed for families of children entering Pre-K through 8th grade, and NOT high school. The high school admissions process differs from elementary and middle schools, and this course does not cater to that. If you are a parent looking to enroll your child in a high school, this course is not for you.

In addition, this course is also designed for families looking for schools in the San Francisco Bay Area. Some of the resources are specific to the Bay Area, however, many are state-wide and apply to California as a whole. If you are looking for guidance on applying to schools elsewhere in California, or especially another state, I cannot recommend this course for you.
