“Our son, Conor, initially thought he was just looking for an academically challenging high school. Lynn helped him develop a clearer picture of what he was really looking for and come to understand the broader value of the education and social experience of a boarding school. Of his many choices, he now attends Choate and finds the academics stimulating, has made numerous friends and is very happy.” – Liam Brown
