Find out why we are different

Graduating from an elite college doesn’t give a consultant special knowledge of admissions; it takes professional training, expertise and experience to help students gain admittance to their top college choices. We have that, with approximately a collective half century of teaching students and helping them gain admittance to their top colleges.

But knowledge isn’t enough. It takes a special rapport and understanding of the teenage mindset to help students present their best selves to admissions committees. We love working with teens, and it shows … with most of our students gaining access to their top choices!
