High School

and the College Process

High school is a journey of self-discovery. We can help guide the way. Our tutors provide thoughtful mentorship for classes and customized test preparation. Plus, we offer comprehensive strategies and no-nonsense wisdom to thrive throughout the college process.

Thoughtful, qualified mentors

Our coaches are lifelong learners who are passionate about teaching. They’re not just the most qualified tutors – they’re also a deeply invested group of role models for high schoolers.

An enrichment-focused approach

We’ll match your child with someone who cares about the intellectual journey and the learning that happens along the way – not just a grade, a test score, or an acceptance letter (though, of course, we know how to get those done, too).

Standardized test prep

Best-in-class ACT, SAT, and AP preparation

Standardized tests can be the bogeys of the college process. Our tutors, all of whom have scored in the 99th percentile, work with your child on a customized toolkit for tackling test days.
