  • "We are so grateful to have Alex’s guidance throughout this process. Our daughter started her discovery phase “late” for a variety of reasons. We did not feel rushed at all. Alex answered all our questions and got to know our daughter, how she works and Alex helped her to understand what she was looking for and which schools offer the best learning environments based on how she works best. And, because of her knowledge, Alex presented several school options our daughter had never considered. " -Joanna, Parent of a High School Student
