Over the years I have fielded calls from parents who have talked to me about the process of getting their son/daughter into elite private schools here in Atlanta. I'm always pleased to learn more about the process that they had undergone and share in their experiences whether it's the first time they are applying to a JATP school, or the last time they are trying to get into their first choice.
The worrisome aspect of this is that there is a great deal of misinformation that occurs when it pertains to the JATP. As I've observed, there are certain skills that all children need to have when they enter school. There are problems with how this process slightly favors some groups over others. It's not a competition to see which child has which score; as a matter of fact, it's so much more than that.
As we've worked with clients with different needs ranging from private school in Atlanta, college outside of Georgia, graduate school, and board certifications, it is important now more than ever to give people a fair and competitive advantage. Information and proper planning of what is expected of you is the recipe for success in my opinion.
