    Great Lakes Educational Consulting provides educational support and guidance for families throughout the United States and abroad.

    Great Lakes Educational Consulting helps families select the most appropriate boarding school, summer camp or special needs school or program, including wilderness programs, therapeutic boarding schools, residential treatment centers, and gap year programs.

    We take great pride in providing parents and students with informed educational options, proactive support and a clear, thoughtful direction – based on a personal understanding of the student’s individual needs and aspirations. While you, as parents, may be our client, our focus is your son or daughter – and a smooth, successful outcome.

    An ever-growing number of options, intense competition and skyrocketing costs are now part of the educational equation, together with today’s compressed schedules. While the implications of an educational decision have always been enormous, the process has never been more challenging to manage. Our role is to help you navigate through the clutter, to a confident decision about your son’s or daughter’s educational direction.

    Our consulting team has built strong relationships with hundreds of educational professionals, schools, camps and programs – so that our recommendations are always based on tested, first-hand experience. We have no bias other than to help you make the best educational decision – and we receive no compensation from any schools or programs.
