At Prep School Sports Connection we help you understand how to leverage your talent, regardless of level, so that you get the best athletic, academic, and life preparation experience possible.
We’ve been through this process before, so we know what the prep schools are looking for, what you should be looking for, and how to match the two. We know the best way to combine sports and prep school.
Done right, this process takes some time and effort. There are many personal decisions and choices to be made along the way, and there’s no room for faulty thinking. We listen closely to you, guide your thought process, and keep you on track.
At the end of the process you will have a complete and objective understanding of all your options and different scenarios.
At PSSC, we provide all the services listed below, but we really provide the information, answers, understanding, guidance, and support you need to reach your goal.
