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.

I am excited to be working in Chicago again with its incredibly diverse families, rich history, and vibrant culture, as well as its iconic skyline and architecture. It’s also one of the best places to be my authentic self, an occasional triathlete, reader of historical fiction, tennis player, tea enthusiast, pen collector, and always putting happiness first.
