College Advising And Admissions Coaching
Brattle Street will give you the tools and guidance you need to navigate the application process with confidence. We work closely with students at every stage, from highlighting their unique talents, to selecting the best schools to fit their individual needs and ambitions, to prepping them for interviews and helping them craft standout personal essays using their own authentic voice. Students who begin working with us early in their academic careers gain self-knowledge by exploring new interests and existing passions through unique community service, extracurriculars, and research opportunities. Our focus is on holistic and highly individualized development, and we commit to helping students realize their best selves so they may pursue their greatest goals and achieve their highest aspirations.
It’s not uncommon for a student’s needs to change throughout the course of their education or for them to discover that a particular school just isn’t the best fit. At Brattle Street, we have ample experience with the specific challenges and opportunities involved in the transferring process. We can help you with both the broader aspects, such as understanding and identifying the qualities you’re seeking in a new school, and the particulars, such as constructing a strong and compelling application. With Brattle Street’s guidance, transferring can be both easy and exciting.
The decision about which day or boarding school to attend can be one of the most important in a student’s academic life. With Brattle Street’s comprehensive and current knowledge of the environments and communities particular schools cultivate, as well as the qualities they’re seeking in prospective students, we can guide you through the process of finding the school that will best nurture, challenge, and prepare you for your future. We work closely with students and their families on everything from establishing long and short-term goals, to selecting the right school, to preparing a first-rate application. Our clients attend some of the finest schools across the globe, and we take great pride not only in our high acceptance rate but in the success our students have throughout their academic careers.

We’re proud to have facilitated so many unique experiences and to have helped students from around the world find the best ways to channel their passions and interests.
Graduate School Admissions
Our students are accepted into the world’s preeminent business, law, and medical schools. With the number of applicants to graduate school steadily on the rise, it’s more important than ever to build an application that best reflects your own unique skills and talents as well as your experience, commitment, and drive. Knowledge of the school itself and the individual program is essential in constructing a successful application. We challenge our students to self-reflect in order to articulate future goals. Our coaches work to organize, construct, and perfect an application with students that goes beyond the information found on resumés and in test scores and really illuminates what each individual has to offer.
Tests don’t have to be a source of anxiety. With the right preparation, you can walk into any exam feeling calm, capable, and confident. At Brattle Street, we work with students to prepare for all major standardized tests, including the SAT and SAT Subject Tests, ACT, SSAT, and ISEE. We also coach students participating in the International Baccalaureate (IB), General Certificate of Secondary Education (GCSE) and International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE) programs. For those applying to graduate programs, we offer preparation for the GMAT, GRE, LSAT, and MCAT.
Academic Support And Mentoring
Whether there’s a particular course you find challenging, an end-of-term assignment that feels overwhelming, or basic improvements you’d like to make in your study skills or grades, Brattle Street’s tutors and mentors will help you rise to any occasion. We believe in the value of the process on the path to an excellence result. Our mentors work closely with students to identify their specific needs and further develop their natural strengths and abilities, coaching them on academic skills and extracurricular achievement, and helping them cultivate their own unique passions and potential. Our tutors provide focused, one-on-one sessions customized to suit individual learning styles, personalities, and temperments. We strive to facilitate curiosity, creativity, courage, and confidence, and to foster within our students a sense of purpose, a thirst for knowledge, and an enthusiasm for pursuing new and unusual opportunities. Our students are tomorrow’s leaders, and we are committed to helping them establish the skills and habits they’ll need to succeed.
