Ivy Scholars is the premier college admissions consulting firm for high school students in the Greater Los Angeles area who are seeking admission to top tier colleges and universities.
High school students in LA have high test scores, great extracurriculars, and dream of going to the nation’s top colleges. Sadly, many of these students are under-supported when applying to college. In fact, the average student:counselor ratio in the LA Unified School District is 240:1. This is better than the national average, but still leaves students under supported when it comes to applying to colleges, especially as applications grow ever more competitive.
Angelenos are turning to Ivy Scholars for the support their students need when applying to college. We’ve mastered the ins and outs of applications, and help our students get into UCLA, Berkeley, USC, and Stanford at rates far above average. Indeed, we see success helping students apply to top colleges across the country.
Here you can see our student’s success rate for the best schools in California, and some of the country’s top universities:

On average, the students we help are 3x more likely to be admitted into their top schools.
When LA parents come to us, they’re looking for expert advice. Just as you want to hire an accomplished engineer to design a house, or an honest accountant to help with your taxes, so should you want an experienced counselor to help you apply to top colleges.
With counselors based in California and around the country, we have experience with top colleges across the US. Each student works 1 on 1 with a mentor who guides them through the process, supported by a team of editors, researchers, and experts to help with specific concerns or areas of interest. Each student’s applications are reviewed multiple times by multiple people before we sign off, to make sure we always help our students put their best foot forward.
We begin working with students where they are, beginning as early as 8th grade, or as late as right after Early Decision results come out; either way we are able to help them find college solutions that work for them.
