School First

Allyson L. Weaver, M.Ed.


With over two decades of experience in teaching, leading diversity initiatives, and administrating admissions divisions at some of the highest ranked independent schools in the country, I know how to help your family apply to schools effectively, represent your children at their best, and ensure you enjoy and understand the admissions journey from inquiry to acceptance.
My zeal for admissions began in Chicago, where I served as the Admissions Director for Diversity, Outreach, and Recruitment (PK-12th grades) at Francis W. Parker School. My appetite for working with families and guiding them through the admissions process followed me to Washington, DC where I headed the Middle and Upper School admissions process at Sidwell Friends School.
While I now call Washington, DC, home, I’m thrilled to be actively working with families in both DC and Chicago. Immersing myself in the vibrant tapestries of these cities, I draw inspiration from their rich histories, diverse cultures, and dynamic communities. Beyond my professional endeavors, I deeply cherish moments I can indulge in my hobbies. Whether competing in an occasional triathlon, delving into the latest historical fiction novel, playing tennis with my partner, or crocheting, these simple pleasures bring immense joy to my life.
