We believe that mindset development via experiential opportunities is an imperative focus of personal and holistic growth for our human capital. Intellectual value is not simply gained via traditional learning techniques using books and classroom methodologies, but is also augmented through the values gained in practical experiences. Kestrel Education uses the avenues of research, volunteerism, internships and summer programs to provide another layer of awareness and development that can be further applied in personal, professional and social efforts by future generations.
"Unlike all the other student counseling services, Kestrel is able to take individual elements of the application process and provide you a visual map of how to put them together to make your application a comprehensive reflection of yourself for the admissions committee. I would like to reiterate that grades and SAT scores are really important and all these tangible are essential to make sure that your application stands out but ultimately these universities want to see you as a person and I feel that a strategic game plan is important in this which becomes so much easier when you are working with the best education consultants. I feel this is where Kestrel steps in, they help you with the intangibles by bringing all the right elements together and also help you remain organized and goal-oriented throughout the most crucial part of your high school career. The three characteristics that I would use to describe Kestrel are that they are very personalized, they are full of energy and lastly they take care of you throughout the admissions process - setting them apart from all the other counseling agencies!"

"My experience with Kestrel for college counseling has been nothing short of phenomenal. The college application process is very difficult and open ended that is why you definitely need help from the best study abroad consultants and I can't think of any career counseling firm that is better than Kestrel.. In the senior year it's really hard to find the right direction and picture of where you want to go. Kestrel really helped me narrow my search and actually understand how not only to write down the essays but also fill in the activities and all the intricacies involved in the admissions process. Sir Ali Sana was really helpful and supportive throughout the entire process."

"Grades are obviously important to the application but another thing that is equally important is the activities and how you package them from 9th grade to 12th grade. Kestrel education actually helped me in packaging all my activities and making them into a single theme through their experiential learning classes. This underlying theme is the main thing that admission officers look for in an application. The best thing that Kestrel Education provided me was one to one counseling which is unparalleled in other study abroad consultants. I am extremely grateful for all the guidance provided by Sir Ali Sana at all the stages of my application. Thank you Kestrel Education for all your help and support!"

"Before I joined Kestrel, I was extremely disheartened and disillusioned. Despite my grades and SAT scores, I had been rejected from all the colleges I had applied to in senior year. So when I went to Sir Ali, I was not only given the confidence to start again but I was also provided with a road map of the things that were needed to be done, which made the process of finding the right college much more efficient and linear. One of the aspects of my experience with Kestrel that I'd like to emphasize was the individualized attention that I received. I could call sir Ali Sana at any given time and there were absolutely no intermediates. This was one of the main reasons that I was able to streamline an application that was worthy of recognition from an Ivy league college"
