As parents begin the search to find the best school for their children, they will encounter varied institutions designed to meet different needs. The process of researching and understanding their school options can seem daunting — and that’s before they even have begun the school application process.

Kathy Mitchell O'Neal has helped families navigate school admission and financial aid processes for 20 years. She will sit down with education consultant Anoo Padte, of Art of Education, to demystify and de-stress middle and high school admissions and answer your questions.

  • Do’s and Don’ts for parents and students
  • What to look for when visiting a school
  • What you need to know about essays and entrance exams
  • How parents and students can remain collected and connected during the process
