What Toechter und Soehne can do for you
Toechter und Soehne (German for: daughters and sons) is an educational consultant operating from the center of Europe. We see ourselves as consultants, not merely agents; meaning that we do offer to accompany you and your child from boarding school to the first university degree. Our focus is to help pupils to fully develop their academic and social potentials.
As – from personal experience – we consider boarding schools to be the ideal places to develop a strong and self-confident personality, we do work together with the most renowned boarding schools only.
There is just a very small number of boarding schools that are able to meet the claim, the image and the ability to be called “leading”. Töchter und Söhne concentrates on those very few schools because only there students are offered additional chances to flourish.
Although the majority of our clients come from Germany, we realize that a growing number of parents from around the world seek our consultation if it comes to looking for a boarding school not only in Germany and Switzerland but in the English speaking countries, such as Great Britain, the USA and Canada as well.
We are primarily "match makers" trying to get together personalities. Or to put it more technically: We try to find the best match between the demand of the student and the offer of the educational institution.
We'd be happy to talk to you about the chances a leading boarding school might hold for your child. Just give us a call: +49-611-180 5880 or send an E-Mail: firstname.lastname@example.org or have a look at the application form you shall find as a writable pdf.
Short History of Our Company:
Dr. Kulessa established Töchter und Söhne in 1999, concentrating on counseling German students and their parents when it came to German or Swiss boarding schools.
The parents established trust in our work and asked us to consult them when looking for boarding schools in the UK. Thus, we successfully established working relations with a good number of very renowned boarding schools in Great Britain, such as Ardingly, Sevenoaks, Wellington – just to name a few. In addition, the overseas department opened its doors in 2007 and since then we also support students regarding placements at boarding schools in Canada, the US, Australia and New Zealand.
Our newest branch is a career and university counseling in German and in English for students looking for universities in English- and German-speaking countries.
