IECA – Independent Educational Consultants Associations

Burning Tree West staff attends IECA’s National and Regional conferences every year to ensure that our staff understands the very latest trends in admission, learning theory, and adolescent behavior. IECA’s national office handles parent requests for referrals in real time and their print directory, updated annually, can be found in most private schools, college admission offices, and is mailed to parents and professionals promptly. On average IECA members, have visited and evaluated more than 150 campuses each, annually about 20% of their time to stay knowledgeable and up-to-date.

IECA members sign an annual pledge that governs their interactions with schools, colleges, programs, students, and parents. They agree to avoid any action that distorts or misrepresents a student’s record or interferes with admission personnel’s ability to get an accurate picture of a student. IECA members affirm yearly that they will accept no compensation from a university, college, or any institution in exchange for placement. Upon request Burning Tree West can provide you with a list of IECA members that have placed students at Burning Tree West or visited our campus.

Cactus forests lead to rolling grasslands, riparian streams, hoodoo mountain ranges and evergreen sky islands.

Mountain ranges in all directions offer scenic drives, hiking, and even snow skiing. Tucson is Arizona’s second most-populous city. Tucson legendary winter sunshine and saguaro-and-sunset landscape have attracted visitors for decades.
