IECA Member Educational Consultants have educational backgrounds, specialized training, do campus visits, and have a ton of professional experience that qualifies them to help equip students on how to choose colleges or universities that meet their individual needs and goals. Families seek the services of independent educational consultants (IECs) for a number of reasons:

  • Desire for personal attention and assistance in the school or college search and application process.

  • Assistance with a student who has unique learning issues or talents.

  • Overwhelmed by the multitude of educational options.

  • Concern about investing wisely in the high cost of education and recognition that matching a student with the right institution is a most significant life decision.

Families working with an IECA consultant can expect a professional atmosphere where discussions focus on the student's strengths and weaknesses, interests and talents, and needs and educational objectives. The IEC will recommend options and help families weigh alternatives of cost, location, curriculum, activities, and institutional atmosphere. The goal is to find a great fit where the student can thrive.
