Educational consultants and college advisors abound. With so many guiding students with their educational journey you may wonder how to decide with whom to work. What set’s us apart from the rest?
We are educators, teachers, counselors, and academics who care about students as they plan their educational path.
What we do:
We ensure that students apply to schools that reflect each student’s educational and personal needs. With this in mind, students achieve acceptance into one (if not all) of their top three colleges. Our students also receive, on the average of $20,000 per year in scholarships.
