Bronx

Riverdale

All three Riverdale private schools attract large numbers of bright, intellectually motivated students (school populations 1000 or more). All are similar to colleges: large, beautiful campuses with excellent sports and arts facilities, many clubs and teams, diverse course offerings including many honors classes, and talented faculty. All attract a largely liberal student population from NYC and nearby Westchester suburbs.  Every year, Abacus Guide educational consulting clients achieve admission to these very competitive Riverdale private schools at every level.

Brooklyn

Brooklyn Heights

The Brooklyn Heights private schools are the most competitive in Brooklyn.  Packer and Saint Ann's, while different in focus, both attract a motivated, liberal Brooklyn and lower Manhattan student base.  Many Abacus Guide educational consulting clients seek admission to these schools, and Emily attended Packer.  For more information on our services, please click here.

The other Brooklyn private schools attract many local students.  Poly Prep, because it offers bus service, also sees many students from around the city.  Each school is individual in character and philosophy, with an intimate atmosphere.  Poly Prep is unusual amongst city schools because it offers such stellar arts and sports facilities.

East Side

The East Side is home to many of the most competitive private schools in the city.  If you're looking for an all-boys or all-girls school, you've hit pay-dirt: many of these institutions are on the East Side.  If you prefer coed schools, there are plenty here too.  Abacus Guide clients have been accepted at all well-known East Side private schools, such as Dalton, Nightingale, Buckley, Spence and Brearley.  For more information on our services, please click here..

It's hard to generalize about the East Side schools.  While many have a traditional, conservative bent, others are quite progressive.  The school choice is tremendous: besides the well-known "Baby Ivies" (a questionable term), you can find a Montessori school, a French school, an Italian school, a Christian school, an international school, a tutoring school ...

West Side

On the West Side, competition for entry to some private schools is very stiff, and to others much less so.  At Abacus Guide, we help our educational consulting clients apply to a balanced list.  We educate people about not only the well-known schools, but also about some other schools that we think are strong.  Some of our clients recently achieved admission to Trinity, Ethical Culture, CGPS, Trevor, and Cathedral, among other schools.

Like the East Side, the West Side offers incredible diversity in school choice.  The area is home to a few single-sex schools, as well as Jewish schools, church-affiliated schools, an international school, a performers' school ...

Many Abacus Guide educational consulting clients seek admission to these private schools.  For more information on our services, please click here.
