Jane Shropshire Portrait

Jane Shropshire

Jane S. Shropshire has been an educational consultant since 1996.  Before settling in Kentucky she was with Independent School Placement Service of St. Louis, Inc.

Years of experience as an admission officer at three highly selective universities, weighing in on thousands of admission decisions, informed her approach to private practice.  In those years and in private practice since, she’s visited hundreds of school and college campuses in the U.S. and abroad.

And now? Jane continues to visit campuses for firsthand information and attends professional conferences regularly.   This enables her to share timely information with clients about developments at colleges and boarding schools, and about admission policies.
