Our Mission

Our Mission is to Simplify the Complex, Co-Navigate the Journey, & Elevate Possibilities for Your Success

​​​​We pride ourselves on providing a broad spectrum of specialty training & counseling to help students develop the ability to thrive in their current and future endeavors.  This focus on helping our clients acquire comprehensive skills and personal traits to be exceptional students poised to succeed post-acceptance and throughout the course of their young lives is what differentiates us from many traditional educational consulting firms.  Given our team’s unique backgrounds and our focus on more active training and coaching rather than passive counseling, our services are most suitable to outside the box students seeking our different approach.  We work with each student to help them discover and develop their academic and future career interests, talents, and authenticity. We then provide them with the counseling, training, and planning to help them get to the end goal in the most stress-free and efficient way possible!

​Special Focus on Helping International Students

Moving half-way around the world to study in a foreign environment is not easy and most international students face many challenges and struggles when studying in the US.  In addition, studies have found that the stress associated with being an international student in the US can take a deep toll on a student and can limit their ability to perform to their highest abilities.  What we discovered is that the vast majority of international students have great difficulty feeling comfortable fitting-in with student life in the US and struggle to maximize the opportunity a US education provides.  The US system promotes open-minded thinking, creativity, boldness, and interactive participation and sharing of ideas to forge innovation.  International students are often schooled in environments that do not promote these attributes.  This makes classroom settings challenging and often leads to a sense of alienation, feeling lost, and an inability to promote and present oneself with strength and conviction. 

International students have expressed these painful issues to our team countless times over the years.  We found that while there are an endless number of companies assisting with test prep and admissions consulting, a private company that is focused on consulting, mentoring, and guiding individual international students through their personal struggles and training them in how to better integrate with the US culture is lacking.  Therefore, InSchoolbus was founded to provide a solution for the pressing need for personalized counseling, training, and planning services to and a support network to help international students perform to their highest abilities and maximize their experience of studying in the US.  From helping answer questions international students have to training them in skills that will help them achieve the highest grades and build the strongest resumes for their future endeavors; educating them to US culture; counseling them through personal challenges they are facing; providing specialized training in writing and communications; helping them learn how to network in the US and build valuable connections and relationships while they are here; educating and guiding them on real-world every day struggles; and overseeing their course-loads, activities, post-graduate prep and planning, and extra-curricular & academic pursuits; our accomplished team of InSchoolbus counselors are here to take our clients under our wing and optimize the experience of studying abroad in the US.

We have a deep understanding of the American education system, culture, marketplace, and American job market.  We stay clearly focused on what the US educational system and job market demands and values and offer only the essential services needed to succeed in the US.  We value transparency, honesty, building trust with our clients, and providing them with the highest quality of guidance and services from accomplished counselors and coaches.  We also strive to make our program as fun and as engaging as possible for students so incorporate social and networking events and our Ambassador program to provide a strong support system and network for our students to make them feel at home while studying far from home.  

InSchoolbus helps Outside the Box students fit into and get into the schools of their dreams!
