We partnered with the University of California Santa Barbara (UCSB, Ranked #8 in US) to deliver valuable experiences to high school students where they receive college credit, a certificate, and a recommendation letter.
We work with schools, camps, and organizations to integrate and augment their existing curriculum.
Taught by experienced and engaging college professors, students will gain confidence in American-style interactive classrooms.
As more American universities move into test-blind and test-optional, we have sought to develop programs that give students the boost they need to submit stand-out applications.
Our biggest value-add is acclimating students to a university-styled classroom while challenging them to think critically, be curious, and do the research to make informed decisions.
