Planning Your Child’s Education May Bring Feelings of Both Enthusiasm for Their Future and Uncertainty

Our Purpose

We are the organization to help build successful families and individuals. We move you through every stage of life no matter where you stand.

Learn piece by piece how to navigate each challenge and transition life brings. The family is life’s greatest annuity, it’s time to invest.

VIP Concierge Services are our beginning-to-end, high quality, white glove independent educational consulting services to local, US and international families and their students.

We are your students advocate / guardian while they are attending their US program or school to ensure they have a support system close by.

We assist families with children, adolescents, teens, and young adults.

We have developed an expertise in assisting young adults with transition programs, transitional program retreats and young adult life skills programs.

We believe in solving difficult challenges. We believe in high level solutions. We believe in opportunities, not closed doors.

The major value of working alongside us is that we devote our utmost care, love and time to each concierge client.

This specialty concierge service is available only for a select number of families and students.

We want each family and student to receive the very best service. One good reason we excel – addressing and assisting with your unique needs and desires.

We also assist with other interests, so please let us know and we will explore on your behalf.

There is no limit on the time we spend via email or phone ensuring each family and student is happy and secure. We offer a wide range of services that are available when needed. In addition, we visit students regularly. Most importantly, we are available to each student and family in case of an emergency.

A Concierge advocate is just a phone call away 24 hours a day.

Concierge Services means direct and constant contact throughout the program stay / school year with each student, her/his parents, advisors, dean, health care personnel, teachers, and therapists. This ensures that any problem is resolved immediately and professionally.

Students are encouraged to call us or text us at any time – whether it is an emergency or just to say “hello.”

Dore Frances

The Founder

Doré. E. Frances, PhD revolutionized the concierge independent educational experience and services for her clients.

She is the mother of a daughter who attended a boarding school and who saw first-hand the difficult position parents find themselves in when children are attending school a great distance from home and family.

Doré has cultivated a company that performs a professional service that goes far beyond routine.

Together with the entire staff they strive to complete tasks and meet the needs of clients with excellence, while maintaining closeness with students and their families.


Having had the opportunity of working with Dr. Doré Frances for a number of years, I would enthusiastically recommend her concierge services. Dr. Frances’ dedication and care for her clients is as pronounced as her incisive psychological understanding & skill.

I can heartily recommend Dr. Doré Frances. She is hard working and she fully understands what is needed to assist. She has come to our rescue with our 26-year-old daughter on numerous occasions and she is a pleasure to work with!

I have worked with Dr. Frances for the past 2 years.  I’m very happy with her work in assisting my 22-year-old son.  She always delivers what she says she will and at a fair price. You will be very satisfied and I recommend her highly.
