WHAT IS OUR GOAL?
Our goal is to help the family find the best educational fit for their student. Whether it's college or high school. We want the kids to feel comfortable when they come in and when they take the test. Our experienced team of college counselors' is looking out for each student and doing it in a focused and fun environment.
The Benefit Of Our Services
Your School & College Connector is best known for our services and working individually with students' in small groups. That is why we are purposefully not a large company and are here locally in Miami. We've had families come back with a sibling or a student for tutoring.
Lastly, we do private SSAT and ISEE testing. These are the tests for entrance into the independent schools in the Miami area and throughout the country. We have many people who come in who are going off to school throughout the United States.
"The reason they come here is that of the service we give is child-centered and teenager centered service with a personalized and relaxed approach." - Maite Halley.
THE BEST PART
We are proud when we have kids who move on from college to successfully doing whatever it is they want to do. Whether it's going off to medical school, being a journalist or working at their father's company. They've found something that they love to do. When we see, the student succeed and become adults who are happy with themselves. That makes us very proud.
