Let the Celebration Begin!

Welcome! I’m Angela Dumalig and I know exactly how challenging it is to get our kids into independent and parochial high schools in San Francisco. The process can be daunting and intimidating, especially the first time around. With my oldest son, I remember feeling like I was holding my breath for most of 8th grade! You want to provide the very best opportunities for your kid – I totally get that. That’s how our journey began too. Over the years and having personally gone through the process 3 times, I’ve come to see the high school admissions process a bit differently than most people. I have supported countless families and I believe the process really is a CELEBRATION OF YOUR KID, which is exactly why I love the process so much! As confusing and hectic things can feel at times, there is a clear plan from where you are now to where you want to be on March 15, 2024 (Decision Day!) and I can show you the way. I would love to partner with your family to coach you through the process from start to finish. A passionate parent and experienced educator, I work with my clients to bring joyful engagement to the admissions process. The best part is I’m here for you and with you – literally every step of the way. Let your child’s voice be heard. Let your family’s story be told.

My three sons who attended three different independent high schools in the Bay Area and I’ve helped parents just like you ride the roller coaster of the admissions process. I have been fortunate enough to see their KIDS GET TO CHOOSE which school THEY want to attend. Going it alone, asking your friends (but not really wanting to ask them), trying one thing then totally second-guessing yourself, it can quickly start to feel overwhelming, confusing, and frustrating. With me by your side, you will craft and submit an authentic and meaningful application and do all of those “other” things no one tells you about – so your kid will have choices come March 15!

Here to serve you, every step of the way
