Middle School Placement NYC

Outplacement Program

We offer a comprehensive one-on-one guidance program to parents and students. The following services are offered through our outplacement program:

  • Comprehensive private and public school guidance – with a holistic view of each child’s academic profile, the placement director guides parents through the school application process

  • Application review and management – the placement director helps parents navigate and complete school applications

  • ISEE Test Preparation – we equip our students with knowledge-based test taking strategies. Students build confidence in their ability to conquer the ISEE not through rote knowledge but through a deep understanding of the material

  • Official ISEE Testing at Corlears School – Corlears School is a closed test site for the ISEE. Our 10s students are able to take the exam with their peers in a familiar place with familiar faces alleviating some of the anxiety associated with test taking day

  • Interview Preparation – parents and students learn the process of interviewing at schools through various fun and interactive exercises

  • Advocacy for students at choice schools – the placement director advocates the school preferences of families with admission directors at ongoing schools

Graduating students and parents receive a great deal of guidance and support throughout the entire process and we are proud of the caliber of schools our students attend but more importantly by how great a match their ongoing schools are for them and their families. 

What do parents have to say about Outplacement?

Having to write and talk about our family interests, strengths and weaknesses with my son has made me understand him better and become closer to him. Before the outplacement process I thought I knew what type of school he wanted and needed...however, throughout this process I discovered that what I believed was not necessarily accurate.

Corlears was a passionate advocate for my daughter with schools. The outplacement director had such confidence in her capacity as a learner, and I know she communicated this to schools… someone at Dalton heard her loud and clear.
— Alum Parent
[Our son] has grown so much through this experience, and now, while he still feels sad about leaving, he is no longer afraid of the future. He feels informed and excited. We feel certain that the experience he has had throughout his nine years at Corlears has been the right mix of warm nurturing and creative learning that will serve him well into the next stage of his education
