Watch a real Zenith parent capturing the moment their child is accepted into the Ivy League university of her dreams

 

Alex

Alex has been so happy with his relationship with Zenith that he’s looking forward to signing up his younger kids when they’re old enough.

Alex’s daughter was in the 7th grade when she began her college prep guidance with Zenith Prep Academy. Although Alex attended a Top 30 university in the US himself, he realized how challenging the admissions process had become, and was unsure of what classes, activities, and competitions would help his daughter best explore her passions and find her area of interest. He was looking for a highly customized strategy for his daughter to build the right extracurricular profile so she’d be able to stand out from the tens of thousands of other students with similar academics. Alex has been so happy with his relationship with Zenith that he’s looking forward to signing up his younger kids when they’re old enough.

 

Lana

Lana’s son joined our program in the 7th grade.

Lana had quickly realized her son’s school wasn’t challenging or engaging enough for him. He was a very bright, driven, and articulate student who had specific fields that he was interested in. He and Lana wanted to know how he could further his interests in these fields through more advanced classes and different competitions, projects, activities,
and more.

 

Phani

Family sought guidance on how to help his son identify his interests and further develop his passion to stand out to top colleges.

Phani’s son was in the 8th grade when they joined our college consulting program. His son was bright and doing well academically, though he had no exposure to any fields/majors. Outside of sports, he also hadn’t participated in any academic or extracurricular activities. Given that Phani didn’t have any experience with how college admissions in the US worked, his family sought guidance on how to help his son identify his interests and further develop his passion to stand out to top colleges.

 

Manoj

Manoj enrolled his youngest son into our program towards the end of his 9th grade to give him the right opportunities, exposure, and guidance that his older son unfortunately missed out on.

Having gone through the college application process once with his older son and knowing how challenging and overwhelming it was, Manoj wanted to find a college consulting program for his younger son to stand out. They understood having a strong academic profile with lots of honors/AP classes, a high–weighted GPA (ex. 4.5+), and high standardized scores was not going to help his son get into the colleges he was looking to attend. Manoj enrolled him into our program early on in high school, towards the end of his 9th grade, to give him the right opportunities, exposure, and guidance that his older son unfortunately missed out on.

 

Nidhi

She enrolled her 8th grader son into our college consulting program so that we can recommend different classes, programs…

Being a first–generation parent, Nidhi wanted to help her son identify and develop his passion to get into the universities he wanted to go to. Although her son had not done much from an extracurricular standpoint, he was a bright and motivated 8th grader who always worked really hard and put his 100% effort into everything that he did. Seeing her son doing well academically, she enrolled him into our college consulting program so that we can recommend different classes, programs, internships, competitions, and other extracurricular activities that will help him stand out to universities.

 

Steve

Steve’s family wanted to make sure his son could reach his full potential by the time he applied for college as a senior.

Steve’s son joined our college counseling program as a 10th grader. Though Steve had attended high school and college in the US, he realized how much had changed in the college admissions process during his son’s 9th grade at an academically competitive high school. While his son was hard–working, Steve wanted someone who could motivate their son, help him identify his unique strengths, and most importantly, find an area of interest to pursue outside of school. Given various opportunities in terms of classes, activities, and competitions, Steve’s family wanted to make sure his son could reach his full potential by the time he applied for college as a senior.

 

Govin & Ramya

Ramya and Govin were so pleased with the successful working relationship with their older son that they signed up their younger son as well.

Ramya and Govin’s son joined our college consulting program in the 10th grade. Although he was doing fine academically, they knew he would need a strong extracurricular profile to stand out to universities. With two years left prior to applying to college, they wanted someone to motivate their son, identify the best extracurriculars/activities that would help him gain an edge over his peers, and highlight his strengths so he’d gain admission into the universities that he deserved. Ramya and Govin were so pleased with the successful working relationship with their older son that they signed up their younger son as well.

 

David’s Family

Guidance on helping their daughter get into her dream university.

David’s daughter was a very strong student academically, involved with various activities including sports, volunteering, leadership positions in clubs and youth councils, dancing, and more. Given that their daughter was in 10th grade, David enrolled her into our college consulting program to help provide resources, recommendations, strategies, and guidance on helping their daughter get into her dream university.

 

Yun

Yun, having an 8th grader who excelled academically but lacked a sense of direction and focus, quickly enrolled him into our college consulting program once he was accepted.

Aside from wanting guidance on navigating high school in terms of what classes to take, when to take standardized tests, and all the other traditional things that college counselors do, Yun wanted specific guidance on figuring out her son’s interests and the strategy/roadmap on what her son could do in terms of programs, internships, competitions, and other extracurricular activities to help him stand out to universities when he applied in the 12th grade.

 

Archana & Sunil

They enrolled their son into our college consulting program towards the end of 7th grade.

Archana’s son, aside from being a bright student, was excelling in various extracurricular activities ranging from music to coding to debate. Feeling at a loss what would be most helpful for college, and unsure of how to continuously engage and help their son reach his fullest potential, they enrolled their son into our college consulting program towards the end of 7th grade.

 

Sanjay & Vaishali

Sanjay and Vaishali enrolled their son into our college consulting program in 8th grade to get a head start in planning for high school and college.

Being first–generation parents in the US, Sanjay and Vaishali were unsure how to guide their oldest son to navigate through high school and the eventual college admissions process. Given the different classes a student can take inside and outside of school, the wide variety of clubs offered in high school, and the various extracurricular activities that they heard through various parents, Sanjay and Vaishali enrolled their son into our college consulting program in 8th grade to get a head start in planning for high school and college.

 

Robert

Robert’s son joined our program during his 10th grade.

Although Robert attended high school and college in the US, given that his son went to a hyper–competitive high school (ranked top 100 in the United States), he wanted a highly customized strategy and plan for their son to further his academic interests and build the right extracurricular profile to stand out from his peers in their high school and in the college applications.

 

Rajesh

Rajesh’s son joined our college consulting program in 8th grade.

Given that his son was doing well academically, Rajesh wanted guidance on resources, programs, and classes that could provide his son with exposure to different fields and majors – in turn helping him identify his interests and turn his passions into activities, helping him attract the attention of his choice universities.

 

Mughda & Vijay

They sought Zenith’s guidance in order to help their daughter identify her area of interest, highlight her academic strengths, and use her passion to stand out to universities.

Mugdha & Vijay’s daughter was in the 9th grade when they joined our college counseling program. Their daughter was doing well in her classes academically, but they wanted a way to identify her interests and develop her strengths. Given that they had only done their post–grad education in the United States, they were unsure of how the college admissions process worked, but knew that it was very competitive. They sought Zenith’s guidance in order to help their daughter identify her area of interest, highlight her academic strengths, and use her passion to stand out to universities.

 

Seema

She wanted to find a college consulting program that specialized in her son’s varied interests and had the expertise to equip him with a strong profile for his top universities of interest.

Seema’s son, a 7th grader at the time of joining our program, was a very bright and mature student who excelled academically and in his extracurricular activities. However, having moved to California from the East Coast, Seema was unaware of all the different programs, classes, and competitions that her son could do (locally, regionally, nationally). She wanted to find a college consulting program that specialized in her son’s varied interests and had the expertise to equip him with a strong profile for his top universities of interest.

 

Priya

Priya’s daughter was accepted and joined our program when she was in 8th grade.

Given that Priya did not grow up here and was unfamiliar with how college admissions worked in the US, her family was seeking our guidance on how to help their daughter build a comprehensive profile that would highlight her academic strengths while combining that with her extracurricular interests to stand out to universities.

 

Charu & Vivek

Their daughter began her college prep guidance under Zenith Prep Academy midway through her 10th grade.

Although their daughter was strong academically and had numerous extracurricular activities involving leadership, sports, and volunteering, Charu and Vivek wanted more specialized guidance on how to identify their daughter’s interests and what she could do in the 18 months prior to college applications to help her stand out to admission officers comparing tens of thousands of other students applying for the same colleges with similar academic profiles (grades, honors/AP classes, SAT/ACT scores, etc.).

 

Vincy

She wanted to make sure her daughter could build a comprehensive profile highlighting her strengths and unique talents on the college application.

Vincy came from a strong business background, having done her education at USC, a top 20 business school. Her daughter was a bright and motivated middle school student, but they wanted to expose her to different fields of interest so she could find a passion best fitting her college/career goals. Given how much has changed with the college application process (requirements, trends, and competitiveness), she wanted to make sure her daughter could build a comprehensive profile highlighting her strengths and unique talents on the college application.

 

Vishal

Vishal was very pleased with Zenith and how helpful it was for his daughter that he’s already enrolled her sibling into our program as well.

When Vishal’s daughter started her college preparation journey with Zenith Prep Academy in 7th grade, he knew he had made the right choice. Vishal recognized the increasingly competitive nature of college admissions and sought guidance on how to help his daughter discover her true passions. He wanted a personalized plan that would enable her to curate a compelling extracurricular profile, setting her apart from the countless other academically similar applicants.

 

Bin

Bin enrolled her daughter into our program in the 10th grade and couldn’t be more pleased and happier with the guidance and college acceptances they’ve received.

As their daughter entered 10th grade, Bin made the decision to enroll her in our college consulting program. While she maintained a solid academic record, they recognized the importance of a robust extracurricular profile in capturing the attention of top universities. With college applications just two years away, they sought a mentor who could inspire their daughter, guide her towards the most impactful extracurricular pursuits, and showcase her unique strengths to help her secure a spot at her dream school.

We Focus on the
Needs of Students Looking
to Attend Top Colleges

We understand that there are few resources available for parents of 6th – 12th graders who are looking to get into the best universities possible – especially for children who are high-academic achieving or those whose true strengths are not found on their report cards. The reason is because most college consulting programs are designed for the general public and with mass appeal in mind.
However, both these students and situations require a very specific strategy and solution to ensure they are accepted into the universities they worked hard for and deserve.

The Most Powerful,

Yet Easiest Advantage You Can Give Your Child

Why Start NOW? Is it too early?

The most common question that parents always ask us is,
“What is the biggest advantage I can give my child to get into a good college?”

The answer always is:

Why Start NOW? Is it too early?

The most common question that parents always ask us is,
“What is the biggest advantage I can give my child to get into a good college?”

The answer always is:

“More time. It’s choosing when your child starts."

Zenith Prep Academy Image

This is undoubtedly the most powerful advantage a parent can give a child in getting them into the college they deserve.

More time is the difference between a student that gets into Stanford versus UC Berkeley. It is the difference between getting into a Top 25 university versus a Top 50 university.

And here’s the reason why.

This is undoubtedly the most powerful advantage a parent can give a child in getting them into the college they deserve. More time is the difference between a student that gets into Stanford versus UC Berkeley. It is the difference between getting into a Top 25 university versus a Top 50 university.

And here’s the reason why.

Because just like most things in life, the more time a child has, the more head start they have in life. It’s just a simple fact of life.

Just like playing basketball, violin, programming, or anything else, a child with 4 years of time will have a significant advantage and opportunities over the child that has only 2 years to achieve the same goal.  And getting into a good college is no different.


Because there are many things you can’t control for your child such as:

But the one thing you can control is…

How much time they have left between now and when they apply to college in the 12th grade.

By JUST purely starting YOUNGER and NOTHING ELSE, this already gives your child AT LEAST a 4.5x advantage over other students when they fill out the SAME application in the 12th grade!

By JUST purely starting YOUNGER and NOTHING ELSE, this already gives your child AT LEAST a 4.5x advantage over other students when they fill out the SAME application in the 12th grade!

Imagine the difference in STRENGTH and how much a college application TRULY STANDS OUT when a child has been working towards this goal with the right expert guidance 4.5x longer than another applicant.

So, when a parent is able to give their child more time as an edge, which means more proper planning and structuring as early as possible, it is actually a HUGE competitive advantage and results in way less stress for both the child and a parent.

And in our 15+ years of doing this, we STILL haven’t heard a parent, out of the thousands of parents we’ve worked with, say “I wish I
started later.”

Every parent by the time 12th grade comes around says, “I really wish I started earlier.”

The reason is because the hours required to develop a strong winning profile didn't just magically go away just because you started later.

Everything that is required for a strong and competitive profile is just now compressed into LESS time until the college application deadline.

Said differently, the choices that parents of 6th11th graders make today have devastating ripple effects and consequences on their 12th grade college application.

So, if you’re reading this right now, then congratulations on taking the first and most important step to give your child the most powerful advantage a parent can give, which is more time and more opportunities in their life.
