When your family chooses to engage with Schuler Educational Consulting, you are entering into a trust relationship. You trust us to learn about your student’s personal opportunity and provide unique counsel that guides this very important decision-making process.
Finding the right school is so important and it is critical to make sure your initial choice is the best choice. The impacts of transferring schools (both financially and psychologically) are tangible and highly disruptive to the student and family. When you consider the overall cost of college, an investment in a private counselor can help smooth the process, reduce stress and add quality to the decision.
In Northeast Florida, there are so many wonderful public and private high schools. Stanton, Paxon, Douglas Anderson, Ponte Vedra, Bolles, Episcopal, St. John’s Country Day, the list goes on and on, but national data indicates that there is an average of one counselor for every 400 to 500 students in many of our schools.
A counselor at Schuler Education addresses this reality and provides the hands-on, custom support you need to find success in the college selection process. Plus, we provide a proven roadmap that includes updates on deadlines, required filings and other activities to keep the entire family focused and feeling less stress as the process unfolds.
Tino is a member of the Southern Association for College Admission Counseling and a graduate of the Independent Educational Consultants Association Summer Workshop. Tino is also a member of the Board of Trustees at Knox College—his alma mater—where he serves on the Admissions & Financial Aid and Campus Life & Athletics Committees. He also received an MBA from the University of Texas at Austin.
After serving 26 years in the medical technology industry at various corporations, most recently Medtronic in Jacksonville, Tino and his wife Silke embarked on a path to help our youth select the perfect college for them to succeed in the changing global marketplace.
They were inspired to create Schuler Educational Consulting in part because of the success of the Schuler Scholar Program, a nonprofit that has supported, equipped and helped gain access to college for over 1000 low income and first-generation college-bound students in the Chicago area. Family is the most important thing to the Schulers, and they bring a commitment of personal service to your family’s search for the perfect college.
Silke was born and raised in Germany, however, after graduating from high school in Germany and before “crossing the pond” to attend college in the United States, she took a Gap Year. During that year she worked as an au pair in France and deepened her knowledge of French and English enrolling in intensive language courses abroad. Silke received her BA in international studies from Long Island University and an MBA from the Thunderbird School of Global Management.
After working for the United Nations and in banking in New York, she held marketing positions in the medical device industry with Stryker Instruments and Johnson & Johnson. Silke is passionate about international exchange as well as mentoring young people and most recently supported host families and mentored au pairs for a US based au pair agency.
These diverse experiences helped shape Silke’s worldview about the power of education to create a positive impact for every family. She understands every child has a unique college opportunity and helps guide them to success as they select just the right school.
Together, Tino and Silke combine their business, community and family leadership roles to deliver just the right services for the college selection journey and help our youth select the perfect place for them to succeed in the changing global marketplace.
