My husband, Dean, and I are thrilled with the service Crisp Consulting +Coaching provided for our middle school assessment. Any amount of help would have been good but the passion, vigor and thoroughness in your process was well designed to elicit and gather information from lots of sources to get a true understanding of the whole situation. Brian made everyone feel included and accountable, but most importantly he provided us with security and a keen and incisive judgment about the top tier boarding schools for our son. Not everyone has good judgment and understands the educational needs of families or can cut to the quick and certainly I don’t give many people the nod of feeling like they really “get it.” Brian’s work was exemplary and our son is doing very well in his new school.

Brian helped us tremendously in getting an idea of where we wanted to send our son to school.With all the options in Charleston we were overwhelmed by trying to figure out what school would be the best fit for our family. Crisp Consulting + Coaching provided us with critical information in just two hours that would have taken us weeks to gather. We definitely plan on using Brian for college admissions in the future.

My wife and I were floored by the wealth of information presented to us.We were starting from scratch in the school selection process and we feel that Brian’s services were invaluable for discovering what options were available. Brian is extremely knowledgeable regarding different educational philosophies as well as the intangibles such as the culture of the school.We feel as if Crisp Consulting + Coaching truly helped us learn what will best fit our child.
James, independent school parent, Asheville NC

Brian helped guide our son through the boarding school admission process. He provided invaluable assistance by coaching our son about what to expect during the school interview, and then worked with him to craft thoughtful and differentiated answers, in order to better position himself. The end result of Brian’s guidance was that we were more confident and prepared going into the interviews and came away from the experience, after the applications were submitted and the interviews completed, feeling like our son had grown from the experience. The admission letter was the icing on the cake.
Mark, boarding school parent, Charlotte NC

While planning to return to Charleston after a four-year assignment in Germany, we really felt out of touch with the current school system and overwhelmed by the private school choices. Crisp Consulting + Coaching efficiently helped us to find a school that we felt would be comfortable for our two school-aged children. Brian listened effectively and had our children’s personalities as well as academic abilities in mind throughout his research. Brian did the leg work for us and was well prepared for all our consultations. By our wrap-up conversation, we felt settled and confident with our choice.
