University Peak makes the college admissions process more approachable and customized for high school students and their families. We offer in-depth individualized guidance to help students discover their strengths and goals. We help students curate their interests in and out of school. In our program, we connect students with highly valuable tools and nurture them each step of the way. With our guidance, students create personalized lists of colleges that are best-suited to their goals. We then equip them with essential skills and strategies to stand out on each application. We offer convenient access to our services, detailed and customized guidance, and an unwavering passion for each student’s individuality.
We create intense, well-thought strategies for admission. We do this through comprehensive 360-degree evaluations of each student’s strengths, weaknesses, unique personality, and goals. We take the fear out of college admissions by creating a well-crafted plan for each student. The goal is to drive students to their fullest potential through actionable goals, and ultimately create a compelling case for admission at the schools that are the best-fit for their individual needs and goals.
Excellence is a daily habit. This core belief constitutes the very fabric of the identity of University Peak’s founders. We strive to be on the forefront of competitive admissions by developing meaningful insights, effective strategies, and powerful results. We believe that we must model excellence in our lives and business practices to set positive examples for our students. Our value on excellence directly benefits students and families, as we propel them to achieve excellent results.
Every student is unique. We believe that we must get to know each student as an individual in order to create truly effective strategies for admission. We first try to understand, then we strategize together, and lastly we execute. We also believe that individuals evolve over time. Hence, we regularly reevaluate each person’s strategy to help ensure that it is aligned with their goals.
College preparation is an intense ride, and it can be enjoyable. We seek to inspire students to achieve their fullest potential through the strategic selection of meaningful activities and courses. We do this by bringing out the best in students, and equipping them and their families with the tools and guidance they need to achieve their goals. The enjoyable process helps to motivate students towards their goals with increased passion and confidence.
The process of preparing for college admissions can be a positive experience for everyone involved. We believe that the best outcomes come from mutual respect and clear communication. Our powerful strategies are based on up-to-date admission policies, honest feedback, respect for individual differences, and open dialogues about concerns and goals.
Integrity is at the core of our values. We believe that students and families require honest feedback, sincere guidance, and reliable service in order to achieve excellent results. Our reputation is built on the trust that we have earned in our clients.
We offer exceptional services through several pricing options, from our online course to one-on-one services. We believe that the selective use of technology increases the effectiveness of our personalized services. We base our services on personalized attention, and use modern technology to enhance our offerings. Students and families can choose between in-person and online services. Our team communicates with students and families through in-person meetings, video conferencing, phone calls, email, and chat. Our students have access to an online library of constantly updated materials. This is one of the reasons that our services are an exceptional value. With less commute time, we are able to spend more time on the individual student. The hybrid of technology and in-person services reduces the overhead costs of running the business. We pass on those savings to our customers.
A successful business starts from within. A strong and happy team fosters collaboration, focused goals, and overall growth. When our clients work with us, they benefit from our strong leadership and cohesiveness.
