At Private School Admissions Advisors (PSAA), we provide private school admissions counseling and placement to assist students and their families prepare for admission to U.S. independent day and boarding schools.


I.  Who are we? 

We are a team of educational advisors from Pinnacle Educational Center Admissions Advisors Group with over 15 years experience in the educational advisory business.  We understand the value of education and the competitive nature of the independent school admissions process. 

Our cutting-edge and insider knowledge and experience in educational and admissions advising afford us the ability to successfully help our clients navigate the process and have results.

For international families:  We are assist your child successfully gain admissions to elite U.S. day and boarding private schools!

We are NOT an International Student Recruitment Agency or Agent, a company (agency) or individual (agent) contracted and paid by private schools to advise and recruit students to those institutions. Usually, the agency/agent is paid by its partner private school only if and after a referred student enrolls and begins taking classes. This payment is often a  percentage of a student’s tuition fees, or a flat rate, and is called a commission.

We are professionals hired and paid only by parents for personalized advice on the private school admission process; we are NOT paid by or contracted by any private school.  Therefore, after retaining us, our clients have a CHOICE as to which elite private school they wish attend.  For more information, please visit:  International Private School Admissions Services
