    Here, I interview one of my good friends, Skylar, about her experience as a mom going through the L.A. private school admissions process for 9th grade. Her son, Luc, attended The Willows for K-8, which is where we met. I think it's always helpful to hear different perspectives about admissions from a variety of voices.--Christina…

      This post was originally published on June 9, 2015. It was written by Beyond The Brochure's guest contributor, Alice. We are sharing it again because extracurricular activities for the secondary school admissions process are a BIG DEAL!  I consider myself occasionally sane when it comes to parenting. I don’t wildly over book my kids, or expect them…

    “When my husband and I applied to kindergarten for my daughter, the schools seemed somewhat mysterious, like hidden gems. Neither of us attended private school, and most of these schools aren’t exactly an open book. Terms like “visiting day” and “parent interview” weren’t part of our daily vocabulary. That would soon change!”- Christina Simon, co-author of…

      * Here's an updated tuition list for 2015-16   You're right. L.A. private school tuition isn't cheap. And, tuition doesn't even cover the full cost of educating a child at a private school. So, in addition to writing the big check, a parent can expect to contribute to annual giving, auctions or gala fundraisers…

We hit it off right away and it turns out we have several "small world" connections. Lisa just started working as an educational consultant, helping families find…

    Originally published August 8, 2010.  When we were looking at kindergarten for my daughter, I think we toured about 10 schools. There were two school tours that I’ll mention in this post because (1) they are extremely coveted schools with big reputations (and, we found, egos to match) and (2) my husband and I abandoned…

    When my daughter was in 1st grade, I co-chaired the auction at The Willows School. This is the school’s biggest annual fundraiser and I knew it would be a lot of work. So, I was thrilled when I found out who my co-chairs would be. They were a talented group of professionals who had skills…
