One of the greatest challenges for families is ensuring the best education for their children at every stage. With the transitions to middle school and high school, families find themselves at a crossroad – which can be a unique opportunity for different, better options for their child. Where do families begin when they are considering a change of school for their children?

The Cornell Club of New York is ready with experts to help! Our speakers will share proven strategies for parents to support their children in school choices and applications, as well as key tips and guides to those considering applying out – whether to public or private schools.

Attendees are invited to register for any or all of the presentations.
