Who We Are

Oyster advisers offer clients a unique breadth, depth and diversity of secondary and higher education experience that you simply won't find anywhere else.

Higher Education

Our combined 20+ years of higher education experience spans institutions large and small, public and private, east coast and west, domestic and international. It includes extensive instructional, administrative, academic affairs, student life, advising and - yes - admissions experience. 

Secondary Education

Our advisers are not only collegiate experts; we also know high school. With over 15 years of experience teaching, administration, and program leadership at the high school level, we know what it takes to make the most of the high school experience as you begin to look towards what comes next. Oyster advisers understand the pre-college landscape for high school students and their families. We can help you think through academic challenges and opportunities, test prep, and how you can be most strategic in positioning yourself for the application process through thoughtful curricular and extracurricular planning.
