It is no mistake that “University” is derived from the Latin word “Universitas” or in English, “Universe”. Indeed, embarking upon the college admissions process can feel like visiting a planet where the language and customs are unfamiliar. While the adventure seems galactic in scope, the experience is by no means universal for every student.
At Axios, we specialize in targeting the best schools for their specific interests and career goals. We will help them identify their unique strengths, showcasing them for acceptance into their top-choice private, state, or Ivy League schools. Our expert counselor speaks the language of the land and is ready to serve as advisor and coach—preparing students with strategies for the all-important essay and interview—ensuring that deadlines and expectations are met.
Recent research shows that significant changes begin to develop in the eighteen-year old brain, and this period of growth continues into the mid-twenties. We want your students to thrive where they will spend these critical years accumulating the knowledge that will support them throughout the rest of their lives.
We offer our families the flexibility to engage us as needed, with hourly options and a variety of packages from which to choose.
