Parent Praise

Become a member

“"I really like that the Parents League is opening up private schools to families that may not be "plugged in" to the private school network. In a world where so much of what you need to know is passed along by word of mouth, you make that knowledge available to anyone who is a member. The Parents League is making admissions more inclusive!"”


Saumya Manohar

Making Admissions Inclusive

“My husband and I are not originally from NYC, so this whole process was foreign to us at the outset. I believe we wound up at a fantastic school because we followed much of your advice from the initial workshop. The school admissions process can be quite long & involved, but we are so happy it paid off in the end." ”
