- Proven methods and strategies for getting into better universities if your child does not have the best grades or SAT scores
- What do universities actually want in an applicant (but never say)
- Specific tips on extracurricular activities that actually help students get into better schools (besides of music, sports, or clubs)
- How to figure out your child’s interest and passion, turn it into an advantage, and use it to get into a better college

What People Think of Our Talk
Parent, Irvington PTSA
I am on Irvington PTSA board this year. I highly recommended you guys!
Zenith is the best investment of our time and resources we have been able to give [our son] so far! I wish we knew about this place before, when our daughter was his age. College choices and possibilities would probably be much wider for her.
Last year our daughter was accepted into 4 ivy league schools and is attending Princeton as Freshman. [Zenith] thinks through everything. Over the 4 or 5 years we worked with them we always felt in control of the process even though my wife and I are not born here or are experts on the American college system. Many of my friends still work with them, and some have finished and have had similar results.
I highly recommend them to everyone. Their intensive research of current trends in the market and keeping both parents and kids abreast of it, is one of their major strengths [with their] talks in schools and colleges, and providing tools for students. Good Job!

In The News
Meetings are used to discuss a child’s specific interests and college-related goals. However, because of limited availability, we are only able to schedule meetings on a strict first-come, first-serve basis.
Due to the high demand of parents that have already scheduled meetings:
Our current wait time for appointments is 3-7 days.
We cannot accept everyone into the program, and because we only enroll once a year, after enrollment ends, we are unable to make any exceptions, and will not consider any applicants until this time next year.
