Ivy League Parents Choosing Admission Preparation Programs in Atlanta

I'm happy to say that this year has been a great year for Admissions Preparations in Atlanta.
We've had a number of Ivy League Parents who have called us asking us for information about our Admission Preparation program as well as our exclusive line of services and products.

As a company, we have been very proud and honored to help parents navigate through this process and ease the anxiety of each and every stage of the process. From the moment that we pick up the phone to speak to the parent to the time that they begin receiving letters in April, it's been a great run for all of these parents for the 2014-2015 Admissions Season!

Know About George Washington

During an Admission Preparation session, I asked a fifth grade student if he knew who the First President of the United States was. He told me it was Abraham Lincoln.

For many of you who may not be an avid historian like Howard Zinn, the correct answer is George Washington. Here are some fun facts about George Washington:

George Washington was born on February 22, 1732 in an area called Westmoreland, Virginia. His father was a tobacco farmer who tried to make a living in iron mining. He spent a great part of his childhood on Ferry Farm near Fredricksburg. In 1751, he travelled to Barbados where he became very ill and contracted Smallpox. As a result, part of his face was scarred but the illness did help his body gain an immunity against the disease.

For many years George had spent time serving in many military outfits and his primary goal was to gain commission in the British Army. This was a dream that was unsuccessful but he was able to gain a great deal of military, political, and leadership skills during this time.He was part of the Seven Years War, the Braddock Disaster, and later on led the American Revolution in the Victory of Boston, Defeat at New York, and Defeat at Yorktown.

What George Washington is most famous for was a story that occurred during his childhood. It has been said that he had chopped down his father's favorite cherry tree. When asked about the event, he ultimately admitted to the deed when he was questioned. His famous response was: "I can't tell a lie, Pa."

Would you like to know what private schools are looking for in a prospective family?

It seems that every parent thinks that they know what every private school is looking for in a potential new family. The best answer that I've been given is, "Someone who can write a check."

In areas that are inundated with a high percentage of people with dispensable income (Los Angeles, Denver, Las Vegas) this may be the case because every family is equally weighted in the value that they provide to the community. In other areas such as New York City, Atlanta, Chicago, the process goes a little deeper than a few taps on the keyboard and "SEND".
