Over 130 years of



Sixteen years ago, I started this journey based on my experiences in selective college admissions and college counseling at an elite boarding school. I saw how stressful and confusing the college admissions process could be for families and thought, 'There's got to be a better way to do this – one that’s less stressful and actually enjoyable!' That’s how Beasley College Consulting was born.

Since then, I’ve been lucky enough to team up with a fantastic group of consultants. Each of us is passionate about making college admissions a positive and encouraging experience. With a combined experience of over 130 years in selective admissions, counseling and higher education, we’re here to help guide you through every step of your college journey. We’re all about bringing energy, enthusiasm, and encouragement to your adventure. We can’t wait to start this exciting journey with you!

Our team's 130+ years of collective admissions and counseling experience from top institutions like Harvard, Tufts, Michigan, Davidson, USC, UCLA, and UCSD uniquely positions us at Beasley College Consulting. Having evaluated countless applications and visited numerous colleges, we offer exceptional guidance in finding the perfect college fit and navigating the application process.

"Leah quickly became a trusted advisor, coach, and confidant for our daughter and her younger brother. Leah’s advice was constructive, honest and personalized. Her guidance was simply invaluable during every stage of the process, from building a rigorous course schedule in high school to selecting target colleges to writing persuasive essays and preparing for interviews. The counsel that we received from Leah not only offered our children a tremendous advantage but also developed their personal ownership and self-confidence so they were better able to handle the pressure and emotional rollercoaster that the admissions process can create. We cannot recommend Leah highly enough to parents and students. We have since referred several of our friends to Leah, all of whom have been equally thrilled with her!”
