You are one of the most amazing people I have ever worked with.

Dana Haddad, CEO
New York Admissions

As the founder and CEO of New York Admissions, I love helping families achieve their educational goals, and I take the stress and guesswork out of the school admissions process. I work directly with every family to get their children into their top-choice private and public schools. As a former admissions director at Horace Mann School and Claremont Preparatory School and a former teacher in New York private and public schools, I give my clients the inside track on the admissions process and a competitive advantage getting in. 

The Advantage You Need for the Schools You Want—New York Admissions

From nursery schools to private schools and boarding schools in New York City and surrounding Tri-State Area, as well as nationally and internationally, I work with children from 10-months to 18-years old. Whether you live in New York or you are relocating, New York Admissions will help you get your child into private school, elite public school, boarding school, nursery school, or special needs school. I have worked with over 1,000 families in the last 8 years, with a 100% admissions success rate. And I can to do the same for you. I look forward to working with you.

You made this process so much easier and less nerve-racking! From taking my phone calls to answering my questions to taking me to Chinatown, you have always been there!
