INDEPENDENT SCHOOL COUNSELOR

Henry C. Mulzac III

Henry C. Mulzac III is an educational leader with more than a decade of experience in education management and counseling. Henry guides families and students (4th-11th grade) through the rigorous admissions process of Washington, D.C.-area independent schools. His keen instincts and expertise are built upon the foundation of his knowledge as an independent school selection committee member, which has led to numerous successful student evaluations and advisory engagements to increase admissions chances.

Henry is dedicated to creating a diverse, collaborative, and progressive working culture with students and parents alike and has built strong ties with independent schools. Recently, he collaborated with Sidwell Friends School as a Middle and Upper School classroom facilitator. While at Sidwell, he supported administration and teachers in effective in-person and remote instruction. He assisted students grades 5-12 in effective learning and interaction through classroom monitoring and material coordination; he also managed expectations and was responsible for social distancing and health/safety guidelines during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Before his work at Sidwell Friends, Henry navigated a progressive 10-year tenure at the Potomac School, ultimately serving in the admissions office after managing roles as an 8th-grade history teacher, guidance counselor, and multi-sport coach.

Henry has a master’s degree from Georgetown University and a bachelor’s degree from the University of Maryland. He also stays fresh with professional development through the Association of Independent School Admission Professionals (AISAP), The People of Color Conference (POCC), and the National Association of Independent Schools (NAIS). In addition to these involvements, Henry is a member of the Independent Education Consultants Association (IECA).

Henry was a great resource for applying to private school. He knows the admissions process inside and out since he has sat on both sides of the table. He provided excellent answers to our questions, making us feel as comfortable as we could going through the process. Henry also did a wonderful job preparing our child for the interview.”

Henry Mulzac has been invaluable in our high school search. Like many parents, we started the high school application process without much experience and quickly figured out we were behind the eight-ball. After several family meetings, Henry quickly assessed the situation and helped us prioritize schools and develop a plan to complete all the applications and testing. He helped our son prep for interviews and helped guide his essay development. We got into a great school in Maryland and are grateful for Henry’s help.”
