What People Think of Zenith's Lectures

Jane D.

Parent, Irvington PTSA

I am on Irvington PTSA board this year. I highly recommended you guys!

Klara Fischerova

Former Zenith Parent

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.

Sandeep D.

Former Zenith Parent

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.

Su H.

Former Zenith Parent

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!

Zenith is also trusted by the
Union City Library
the largest after school educational institution in Fremont
