The University Peak Core Values
Engage Intellectually
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.
Drive Excellent Results
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.
Embrace Individuality & Search Deeper
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. ​
Foster Fun & Inspiration
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.
Respect and Communicate With One Another
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.
Lead With Integrity
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.
Provide Exceptional Value
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.
Build a Positive Team & Family Spirit
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.

I just noticed through the mail that I got into Notre Dame!! I never expected this, so I’m absolutely shocked and thrilled. This throws a wrench into my decision for college because I just never saw this happening. Thank you so much for all the help and guidance you gave me. Without you, none of this would have been possible. I cannot thank you enough and my parents echo this thanks.


Thank you for all the support and coaching you have given me during the entire college application process. I learned so much about myself, and feel more confident about the ways that I stand out from others. You have a way of bringing out the best in people, and I don’t know how I would’ve gotten through the process without you.


A heartfelt thank you for everything you have done for us! I just wish we found you sooner. You were exceptional, and it was a pleasure to work with you. There is something about your demeanor that I appreciated. You are so calming, yet you know how to get things done. This rubbed off a lot on XXXX. You are like a sports coach (and a welcomed referee sometimes too, haha)! Guiding the team towards success!


I just want to thank you for all of your help. I appreciate that you took the time to understand and guide me every step of the way. You are a good balance of being gentle and nice and funny AND really knowing how to raise the bar. You taught me how to think about my goals in steps, and how to think get to the goal. I knew that I had to do my best in order for colleges to see my best. I learned that I had to work smarter, not harder. While we worked together, I enjoyed our time because you always encouraged me. Our meetings were always a breath of fresh air. You gave me all the tools, kindness, and guidance I needed to achieve my goals. I feel really proud of myself. Thank you.


You did an incredible job getting my son into his top choice school. He was not only accepted into his first choice, but also got into the business school. He was absolutely ecstatic when he found out! We cannot wait till you work with our younger son and help him through the process too.
