About Me

Hello! My name is Lara Kilgore, and I am the founder of Beyond Education. Finding my way to San Antonio by way of Trinity University, after more than 10 years I call the city home. I have worked in the education consulting industry for over a decade and launched Beyond Education in 2018 when I saw a need for a holistic approach to students’ unique learning needs and focusing on their strengths and confidence rather than just their test scores. I’ve had the honor of working with hundreds of families to help guide their students through their educational journey so that they are prepared for college and the steps beyond that. I believe strongly that the end goal is not getting into a big name college, but becoming a confident, thriving, self-reliant adult.

I LOVE helping parents and high schoolers navigate the college application process. It has gotten wildly complicated and very stressful for families trying to find the university that is the best fit for their kid. So I love to come alongside students to figure out their passions, skills, and strengths and how that can take shape as an undergrad.

My favorite thing about running Beyond Education is the people I get to meet. The parents, students, and Beyond Mentors we hire all share a desire to see students be at their best. I believe that every person, no matter his or her age, has a unique gift and passion to make a mark on this world, and my desire is that Beyond Education is a space where that truth can be realized.
