Extensive Knowledge and Expertise
Having visited more than 100 boarding schools in North America, our team has unparalleled, first-hand knowledge of schools and what they look for in prospective students. Annual school visits, deep research, and familiarity with school admissions allow us to identify the right schools for your child. With this inside knowledge, our clients learn about the differences among all the boarding schools and about great schools of which they might not have previously heard.
Your child’s profile should showcase their experiences, strengths, and unique qualities. By identifying and building on their interests, Apply Ivy helps students take ownership of their accomplishments through their activities and experiences that allows them to stand out through brainstorming ideas, providing guidance, setting goals, and managing the process to make progress towards achievements that truly stand out. We do this before diving into the application process by leveraging our proprietary tools, leading to significant experiences that stand out in the interviews, essays, and applications.
Did you know that the interview is one of the most important parts of the boarding school application? Boarding school acceptance decisions often hinge on the interview. With decades of experience preparing clients for interviews at all levels and as alumni interviewers, we have a thorough understanding of what it takes to excel. Our deep knowledge and research of boarding schools gives our students the edge in articulating why a specific school is a good fit for them, and why they are a good fit for that school. The extensive preparation we provide helps our students develop the proactive approach needed to confidently and effectively present their best selves in interviews. As a result, our students consistently impress Admissions Officers with their preparation and ability to stand out in their interviews, leading to positive admissions results.
Bespoke Essay Support
In addition to the interviews, the essays are a golden opportunity for applicants to distinguish themselves by demonstrating their thoughtfulness through their written communication skills. By leveraging our knowledge of what schools look for in admitting students, we work closely with your child on their essays to showcase their personalities, highlight their experiences, and write effectively to make an impactful impression on admissions committees.
