Academic Planning & Consulting

There are shortcuts to your success, but you need to plan ahead.

You understand that universities care about both academics and extracurricular activities, but to what extent? Ask yourself these questions.

  1. Do I know which university and faculty fit my kids? How should they select target universities and/or faculties?
  2. Do I know which courses add more weight to students’ university applications? 
  3. Do I know which extracurricular activities students should focus on?

 

“I wanted to enter an Ivy. I am a big brain. I don’t think I need others’ help. I took six AP exams, took SAT, participated in IB at Richmond Secondary. I achieved outstanding results with a lot of extracurricular activities. However, all my Ivy applications were rejected. So sad. Maybe my approach was wrong in the beginning.” – Isabella C.

Each student is unique, requiring dedicated planning advice. When your kids’ career options are narrowed down to a few candidates, we will help you customize plans including the courses to be taken at school, additional exams to be written, and extracurricular activities to be involved. Through our effort, they are more likely to save time and energy in order to focus on priority tasks. In addition, we incorporate a feedback loop into our service so that we can constantly monitor students’ progress and help them make necessary modifications. As a result, they are always working towards their destination – their dream faculty and university.

“I heard about different rumors of how to get into an Ivy. Everyone has a different idea. However, Giraffe helped me plan my academics and activities. I only took those necessary for me. Therefore, I can save my time and stay focused on my schedule. That’s how I received an offer from Cornell.” – Francis Z.

 

Do you want your kid to enjoy the same success as Francis’s?
