Integrating the children of temporary
foreign employees into elementary and high schools in the US is often a challenging task.
With the time, effort and money a corporation puts into bringing temporary
employees to the US to perform needed and specialized functions, it is most important that
the employee be content on the job and at home- and stay. Educated Choices LLC
provides educational counseling to families of corporate employees in order to facilitate
a smooth educational transition from system to system and culture to culture.
provides the following:
We provide an orientation discussion
with both parents and children (age allowing) early upon the family's arrival in the
US. Families will learn, in a general sense how education works in the US, what some
fundamental differences are from what they have experienced in the past, and what
educational options exist at the various educational levels.
We provide a check sheet of education
related items to be researched and "packed" for the trip. Parents will be
motivated to come to the US with information which prepares them for not only beginning a
new system and experience in education but eventual re-integration into their home system.
Many families and students are not only
mystified by the overall educational structure in the US, but a school's internal
mechanisms as well. For this reason it may be necessary to intercede on behalf of
the students and parents.
For those students who are at the
secondary level, we provide post-secondary counseling. This may well entail
discussions with the student regarding university admission strategy and search, and
periodic communication with the school's guidance staff and prospective foreign colleges
We assist families in the preparation
for return by checking that appropriate material is gathered so that re-entry into the
educational environment of origin is as smooth as possible. This may well include
the gathering of reports and summaries of curriculum for the courses of study which were
completed during the student's stay in the US.
Pricing for these services will
necessarily be made on a case by case basis with a final determination to be made after
the initial meeting with the family. This initial meeting and preliminary follow-up
conversation and advisement will be $1000.00. We have calculated that the majority
of students may well be provided for with an expenditure of $3000.00. The maximum
charge will be $5000.00. In the final analysis, we will price for what we
deliver. Hourly rates at $175.00 per hour plus expenses are an option as well.
