FOUNDER & DIRECTOR OF STRATEGIC ADMISSIONS ADVICE, LLC
As a dynamic leader, educational strategist, emerging author, and speaker, his experiences in the field are unparalleled. As an educator for almost twenty years and entrepreneur for almost a decade, he has counseled many students and families through the often-frustrating private school and college “admissions maze.”
Inspiring and instructional, Shereem connects with anyone who needs an educational plan. His students have attended schools such as Dartmouth, Duke, Emory, Harvard, Stanford, Syracuse, University of Georgia, University of Miami, University of Michigan, University of Pennsylvania, University of Virginia, University of Texas – Austin, Vanderbilt and Yale as well as many others.
Before he set out on this purpose-filled assignment, he worked as an Admissions Officer at Georgetown University, a guidance counselor at two high schools. Having worked on “both sides of the desk” in admissions gives Shereem a perspective that few other counselors have. He aims to assist students and families who do not readily know about this process or have extensive knowledge of the world of private school and college education. He clearly has his finger on the pulse of what is most important to families and is consistently strategic in his approach to helping students to have school choices.
He is a graduate of Wesleyan University with a Bachelors degree in English and a Masters of Arts degree from the Breadloaf School of English at Middlebury College. In 2005, he was selected by the National Association of Independent Schools as an E.E. Ford Fellow for Aspiring Heads of School. Additionally, he has served on the Board of Trustees at La Cima Elementary Charter School in his native Brooklyn, New York. He is also Member of the Independent Educational Consulting Association (IECA), Southern Association of College Admissions Counseling (SACAC) and the National Association of College Admissions Counseling (NACAC). He has been quoted in the New York Times, Points North Magazine and written for Suwanee Magazine as well as Uptown Magazine.
Shereem enjoys reading, exercise, traveling and playing with his wife and four children. He is an avid sports fan and distinguished man of Omega Psi Phi Fraternity Incorporated.
