Marybeth Hodson

Catholic University of America
Senior Partner & Director of US Boarding School Admissions Counseling

Marybeth Hodson has years of experience as a Senior Associate Admissions Director and Coordinator of International Admission at one of Connecticut's prestigious college preparatory boarding schools (referred to as "prep" schools) and was instrumental in assisting overseas students to enroll in the school. Marybeth has extensive knowledge of New England prep schools, developed through her role as an admissions representative and as parent of four prep school educated children. She has a keen sense of what academic profiles and attributes prep schools are looking for. Her intimate knowledge of these schools has helped students identify schools that best suit them – schools where they would excel, and what admissions officers are looking for enables our team to better facilitate student's admission preparation.

Along with our assigned counselors, Marybeth will assess each student's academic and language strengths, identify extra-curricular activities, refine their personal statement as well as consult on various ways to enhance each student's application. Mrs. Hodson is a native English speaker, who works with students to coach them on interviewing skills to best prepare them for their admission interview. She will compile a complete profile to help our students apply to the most competitive boarding schools. With in-depth understanding of life in a boarding school, Mrs. Hodson communicates to our students to help them prepare for the transition to living in the USA and for some students living away from home for the first time. 

Mrs. Hodson holds a BA from Saint Michael's College in Colchester, Vermont and a Master's Degree in Psychology from the Catholic University of America in Washington, D.C. She has worked as a national trainer for a US Government job training program. Additionally, she worked for Educational Training Programs in Windsor, CT. Mrs. Hodson has a passion for Women's Lacrosse, having founded a successful local youth program and coaching for a competitive boarding school program. She has coached hundreds of girls in her 10 years as a lacrosse coach. Marybeth has experience in fundraising and development. With an interest in Global Education, in her free time, Marybeth serves on the Board of Directors of Asante Sana For Education, an NGO building schools in Tanzania.

Marybeth is also a Professional Member of the Independent Education Consultants Association (IECA).
