We guide families searching for schools, colleges, and graduate programs where the unique child, adolescent, or young adult can thrive.
We assess each student’s strengths, interests, needs, and potential to facilitate the best school, college, or graduate program fit.
We are committed to helping students discover their potential through education.

In our 21st century culture, the run-up to college is one of the most stressful rites of passage that students will undertake. At Howland, Spence & McMillan, our consultants develop a personal relationship (or build upon one already established at an earlier phase of the student’s educational planning) with the college-bound student.
Our goal is to promote self-advocacy skills and a growing self-knowledge in the aspiring college student. The combination of developing skills and insight into self will play a critical role in guiding a successful and meaningful search for the college that will prove to be the right fit for that student’s passions, interests, strengths, and needs.
The student’s growing self-knowledge provides the foundation for our practical guidance through the complex and highly nuanced process of college planning, application, and placement.
