Terry Mady-Grove is a Certified Educational Planner. This certification is granted by the American Institute of Certified Educational Planners to consultants who meet stringent application requirements including a Master’s degree, specialized training, significant professional experience, involvement in professional organizations and the passing of a board-certified exam requiring both institutional and professional knowledge.

As a founding partner of a law firm, Terry Mady-Grove has over 25 years of experience as an attorney. During this time, she finely tuned negotiating skills, assisted clients in all types of documentation and mentored young attorneys while running the business of the law firm. Ms. Mady-Grove also has an M.A. in Teaching of English from Columbia University Teachers College and holds a teaching certification in New York, having gone back to school with a unique perspective as a mature student. The many years of practicing law combined with understanding the psyche of a high school student create a perfect combination as she helps families choose the right school and program for their student.

As an interviewer for Cornell University for over ten years, Ms. Mady-Grove knows what pressure students are under in this competitive environment. She also knows what makes for a successful application and interview and what does not.

As a parent, Ms. Mady-Grove has first hand experienced that the college application and selection process can be stressful. We can provide the buffer between the student and the parent, allowing the parent-child relationship to be a pleasant one in those important high school years rather than a battleground.

Ms Mady-Grove has two children. One child chose to attend the local public high school while the other opted to attend a boarding school several hours away from home.  They attended their first choice colleges and graduate schools, Princeton University and Columbia Law School and University of St. Andrews in Scotland and the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE).
