Would you do The Ivy Centre's program again if you could?

​"Absolutely! I'd have done it sooner for sure!"

Nubia T. (Top 20: United Kingdom, France, United States)

"The Ivy Centre is different from other programs because it's more personalized. You have more contact with your mentor, one-on-one contact, which is important because the mentor gets to know you more personally, helping with essays, planning, and college list more efficiently."


> We offer short- and long-term availability

Whether you are American or foreign, a 9th grade high school freshman, a 12th grade high school senior or a college student looking to get into the best university programs in the United States and Europe, our packages guarantee that each student will work with the same mentor for the entirety of their contract for up to 4 years, so the student's progress isn't lost in the process of mentor change or consultancy instability.

> We care about you

While most consulting services offer a systematic prep program to every student, The Ivy Centre cares about each student's personal development during the process as well. Because of that, all of our mentors have, at least, a 9 out of 10 Net Promoter Scores provided by their students quarterly. Every mentor is also available off-session in order to support the student and parents in every step of the way.


"The first attribute you notice about Lara is her passion in helping others learn and grow. As a mentor, motivator and friend, the fact that, apart from being a mentor at The Ivy Centre, she also founded nonprofits for the underprivileged to also be able to receive quality mentorship program to top schools epitomizes her love and drive in pushing others to extend themselves. Always willing to support professionally, emotionally and socially, Lara's friendly and humble approach to any task at hand makes her an incredible asset to so many people's lives. She is incredible in not only getting you to see the light in the tunnel, but marching up there and switching on the light with you. It was an honour to be Lara's mentee and I know her charismatic charm will take her really far in life."

Student, Class of 2023

"The application process is extremely challenging and often overwhelming, so having a mentor is a key resource to get you to succeed. Lara not only helped me find the right strategies, but she also believed in me, giving me more confidence to believe in myself."

Student, Class of 2022

"I'm very lucky to have found The Ivy Centre and my mentor. You don't feel like you're just dealing with a company, but with people who really care about your success."

Student, Class of 2024

"We had initially hired a different company before The Ivy Centre and, once we tested The Ivy Centre's 14-day money back guarantee trial, we just fell in love with the respect, attention, and knowledge from our mentor. She is extremely knowledgeable - more than all consultants we had talked with - and goes out of her way to always help my son. Their calls also frequently last more than the time we originally agreed on and we feel that The Ivy Centre isn't like the other companies. My son couldn't be happier!"

Parent of Class of 2025

"My mentor helped me all the way from planning out relevant extracurricular activities, brainstorming all my essays, practicing for interviews, and understanding the application process as a whole. My mentor was more than just a mentor; she is a, now, a lifelong friend."

Student, Class of 2023

"It takes a lot to impress my daughter, but in only 3 sessions, she found in her mentor more than just a college consultant. They work together from selecting activities to correcting essays. My daughter even landed a free research position with a professor from Columbia University with Devin's help!"

Parent of Class of 2024

"The best part of the program is the essay help. I had to do my personal statement 6 times until it was finally good, and my mentor never complained about the time spent with giving me feedback and redoing essays. Lara really cares about your application being perfect. Without her help, I'd have never submitted such good essays that got me into my dream school: Stanford."

Student, Class of 2022

"In only a few months working together, I've already landed a research position with the MIT, learned all about the application process, practiced for essays, and planned out all my extracurriculars. The motivation I get from my mentor is something you don't easily find. Sometimes I'm anxious at 2 a.m. and text my mentor and she always helps me. I couldn't recommend more for you to try out The Ivy Centre!"
