How We Are Different

We are professional educators and counselors.  As such, our fee schedule is reflective of our education, experience and knowledge.

The Buckley Education Team has earned higher education degrees to continue to advance our knowledge within a field that is ever evolving, morphing and changing.

We are committed to maintaining our expertise on admission policies, practices and trends at all levels of the education trajectory.

We provide up to 20% of our time to those students and their families who cannot affort our services.  As private practitioners, paving the way for school counselors to seek private counseling as a career, we understand the importance of equity in education.  

With all of this being said, we are not an inexpensive option for those seeking educational support.  But, our statistics show that EACH and EVERYONE of our students have completed the personal and individual work to ensure they are at the right school for their learning.

How do we structure our fees?

All of our work is completed on an hourly basis.  A family receives a billing statement detailing the work completed on behalf of the student.

Our rates differ depending on our years in the business.  Jeanmarie Buckley has the highest rate, as she's been in the profession since 1986.  Lisa Kraft has the next tiered rate, as she's been in the profession since 2003.  Jimmy Dahroug has the next highest rate as he has been in the profession since 2009.  

We offer a range of pricing to guide families with their needs.  How do we do this?

We provide an initial and complementary Meet and Greet.  In this meeting, we share our philosophy, our unique downtown Burlingame Avenue space and how can meet the needs of the student and their family.  Yes, we see this process of educational development, as a family process.
