Secondary Boarding and Day School 


There is nothing quite like the educational experience found on independent school campuses. With access to facilities and faculty 24/7, students have the opportunity to flourish when matched with the right school. They have direct contact with their teachers most of the day, whether it be in the classroom, on the playing field or in the dormitory. This offers a unique and enriching environment designed to get the best out of each and every student.


At Hetzel Educational Consulting, Brian has decades of experience working in and around independent boarding and day schools.  From working in admission offices, living in dorms, coaching on playing fields, and working with advisees, he knows all of the intricacies of campus life.  With so many schools to choose from, the admission process can be a daunting one. He will walk you through each step of the process, making sure to find the right fit.


Junior Boarding


The middle school years can be transformative for many children, often nurturing their talents both in and out of the classroom. While not as well known as secondary independent schools, junior boarding schools offer a unique and diverse educational atmosphere to unlock each child’s potential, fulfilling the needs that are vital to young minds. Students will learn and grow during their middle school years, encouraged by highly supportive faculty and staff.

Learning Differences


Not everyone learns the same, especially in the context ​of a traditional school classroom. As someone who has learning differences, I am very aware of the struggles and pitfalls that can hamper a student's progress in school. The frustration, disappointment, and consequential impacts on self-esteem are very real and can often go unnoticed by teachers. However, there are many options available, both in traditional independent schools as well as independent schools strictly dedicated to language-based learning differences. I have worked in both and will use my knowledge and experience to help guide you through the process.
