About Us

A boutique service with a global reach

Since 1998, our 1:1 college and graduate counseling services have assisted students in identifying and placing into their best-fit college or university. Our counseling team carefully tailors each student’s pathway to admission and provides ongoing support and mentoring—from managing the application process to coaching and supporting them through the challenges of adolescence and young adulthood.
