About Michael YagerCollege Admissions Consultant

My Background

I started my journey in college admissions working in the small liberal arts environment at St. Lawrence University in New York and then Wheaton College in Massachusetts. In addition to recruiting students and making admissions decisions, I served in a number of other roles as an admissions officer at both schools, including athletics liaison, on-campus events coordinator, and technology implementation committee. After more than a decade in college admissions and Northeast winters, I made the switch to working in a high school setting as the director of college counseling at The Baldwin School of Puerto Rico, an International Baccalaureate World School. At Baldwin, I was a member of the curriculum design team and also the head coach for the varsity girls basketball program. Most recently, I moved to Texas, where I worked as the associate director of college counseling for Fort Worth Country Day and a seasonal application reader for Texas Christian University.

Why I Joined Bright Horizons College Coach

I joined College Coach because I wanted to be a part of a company that was actively engaged in helping students from all backgrounds and committed to fostering an inclusive environment. I love a good challenge, so mentoring and coaching families through the complicated and ever-changing world of college admissions is energizing for me. Watching students develop confidence in themselves and their abilities as they navigate this process is easily one of the most rewarding aspects of working at College Coach.
