The conversation between a recruit and a D1 university is totally different than for a student who has to knock on the front door with a paper application. We will help you navigate the relationship-building process with coaches and the admissions office, and provide useful insights into how to interpret the sometimes conflicting messages you receive from each.
Prep school admissions
There are a growing number of options available for primary and secondary education. From traditional boarding schools to online academies, we will educate you on all the options and help you select and apply to a program that fits.
OFF Piste, EXPERIENTIAL LEARNING
From volunteer opportunities in China and Costa Rica to internships at famous tech companies, we will guide you through the whole process. These experiences can help any college application shine, but be prepared: there is no guarantee that the CEO of the company you intern for will give you a recommendation. Colleges are wary of any experience that smacks of "pay to play."
college admissions for STEM & THE ARTS
Professor Foley studied Art and Art History as an undergrad, then went on to get a Masters in Pure Mathematics. He is now a doctoral candidate in Mathematics Education at the storied Robert B. Davis Institute in the Rutgers School of Education.
Ron loves all students. While he tends to encourage anyone with a talent for STEM to actually major in STEM, the right side of his brain harbors the same love for those going into the arts.
We will provide insights into programs within particular majors at various universities. No two engineering degrees are the same!
SUMMER Placement - HS and college
Summer should be a time for recreation, but given the current admissions climate, students hoping to get into top colleges should show that they have spent at least some of their summertimes productively. Are expensive summer programs at Ivy League universities better than getting a summer job at a grocery store? Is it possible to get an internship at an exciting tech company in California, or closer to home in Bell Works?
We'll help you find summer opportunities that will make a difference not only in your college application, but your life.
