We consider it a true privilege to help college applicants and their parents navigate the college admissions process.
We know that applying to college is a significant rite of passage to adulthood, and we believe that education is key to a productive and satisfying future. We take pride in being able to help you minimize your stress and maximize your success through this exciting time of opportunity and growth.
We are strategic in our approach.
The college admissions process is a multi-year, multi-phase process that can quickly become overwhelming and unmanageable if it is not approached strategically. We help you strategize first, so that you know what to do when, and you don’t waste time doing things that don’t matter.
We provide coaching that is holistic, personalized, and one-on-one.
Selective U.S. colleges use a holistic approach when making their admissions decisions, so we feel it is important that our coaching align to that approach. We personalize the coaching you get and address all of the factors that admissions officers will consider when deciding whether to admit you. In order to do this, your Ivey College Coach will work with you one-on-one and take the time to get to know you and your particular strengths, interests, and dreams.
We are honest, ethical, and practical.
We don’t think anyone is well-served by half-truths, empty promises, or abstract advice when it comes to the college admissions process. So we tell it like it is, promise only what we can deliver, and are focused on helping you in concrete, practical ways.
Anna Ivey and Alison Cooper Chisolm, the principals of Ivey College Consulting, have chosen our team of college admissions coaches with great care and we believe the excellence of our coaches distinguishes us from other educational consulting firms.
