The IvyWise Difference

What sets IvyWise apart? Our unique methodology.

Admissions is about more than just test scores and grades. Schools take a holistic approach to evaluating applications, considering activities, interests, and other factors outside of numbers, and IvyWise takes that same holistic approach when counseling students. The IvyWise methodology empowers students to identify and utilize their strengths and interests. Our counseling, tutoring, and research services are seamlessly integrated to give students the most comprehensive support available. This counseling approach is unmatched – there’s no other consultancy that offers this service.

The IvyWise Difference

IvyWise empowers students to live up to their highest possible potential, both academically and personally.

For over 22 years, IvyWise has been dedicated to helping students find the schools that will be a good fit for them, where they will be happy and succeed. Our team has over 200 years of combined experience and we have worked with thousands of students. In 2020, 91% of IvyWise students were accepted into one or more of their three top-choice schools, and in our entire 22 year history, less than 1% of our students have ever transferred from their original school.
