Our History

A natural extension of our parent site, AdmissionsQuest.com, AQ Educational Consulting reflects our continuing growth and dedication to families exploring independent education options for their children.

AdmissionsQuest.com began serving boarding schools and families as an admission resource in 1999. Throughout our history we have continually worked to provide families and students with the right tools to find and apply to independent schools. Through our school profiles, boarding school blog & podcast series, numerous prep school articles pertinent to the admission process, and financial aid resources, our mission has been to connect families and schools. Our monthly site visitors utilize AdmissionsQuest.com in their search for the best private school fit.

AQ Educational Consulting extends our commitment. We know from experience that in order to provide the best options for families and students, we must, first, get to know them. AQ’s experienced educational consultants will thoroughly learn about our students, families, and schools before making any recommendations. Our goal is to help each family find the school that best fits each individual student.

Our experience, knowledge, expertise and understanding makes AQ Educational Consulting the right choice for a family looking for the best possible school fit.
