What we do

The way we work.

We guide our students on a path of self-discovery to uncover their true strengths, interests and passions. And with that knowledge, we embark on a meaningful college or boarding school search, exploring beyond the ratings and rankings, to find a select group of schools that will cultivate who a student really is and what they want to become. When the right school is chosen for the right reasons, it not only fosters a lifelong love of learning, it also provides the foundation for a successful and fulfilling life beyond the years of formal education.

How we do it

The way we work.

We work closely with students and parents to target colleges or preparatory schools that best match a student’s individual skills, needs and passions. Avery Educational Resources offers exceptional personalized guidance and comprehensive services, including Best Fit Decisions® and the FIT Methodology.

Best Fit Decisions®
Avery Educational Resources, LLC offers a unique analysis, discovery and preparation program that streamlines the college and boarding school search and application process for best results.
