About Us

One Sky Education, LLC is a boutique international education and student admissions consulting firm focused on empowering students to reach their potential and achieve their educational goals. 

We limit our number of clients to ensure high-quality service. We work closely with families and students from the local New York area and from around the world seeking admission to college as well as competitive boarding and day schools. We meet with students face-to-face, over WeChat (English and 中文,都可以), Zoom and Skype. 

The application and admissions process can be stressful, but with diligent preparation and expert guidance, it does not have to be.
