What We Do
Parents realize that selecting the right school for their child is one of the most important decisions they will ever make. We believe the key to successful school placement is understanding the specific needs of students and knowing the essence and the culture of each school. Whether a student needs competitive academics, athletics or arts programs or a school with therapeutic or special needs, we determine and deliver a holistic approach to the process. Identifying the right school match is our ultimate goal in this somewhat daunting process. Daily, we help students and their families navigate through the new educational world, and as their unbiased advocate, discover and attain the best academic, extracurricular, and social match.

How We Can Help
With your personal Arlen consultant, you will have access to over 700 Premier Primary and Secondary Boarding Schools. Knowing every one of these Schools, their offerings, and how they benefit your child is our area of expertise. We help you sift through the abundance of information Schools provide and take you beyond the Schools’ brochures and websites to a deeper understanding of the institution and curricula. This exclusive access gives you the greatest chance at studying in the U.S., U.K., Canada or Switzerland and succeeding in a new place as our students have proven throughout our history. We believe that students’ educational needs and aspirations, within reason, should always come first, and the direction we collectively take should focus on what will help make those needs and aspirations a reality.
