Customized counseling: 4,000 universities, but only one you

Applying to university can be overwhelming. One-to-one advising with a professional counselor helps you get into your dream school. They work with you from your first year to choose the right courses and co-curricular activities, then craft applications that showcase your talents and skills—so you can get into the right university program to meet your goals in life.

It's not just about getting into a great university. It's about getting into the right one.

A recent EF Academy New York graduate, Viridiana from Mexico, sought her university counselor's guidance to select universities fitting her passion for architecture. Taking IB Visual Arts and Engineering & Design, she secured acceptances at her top choices: Cornell University and The Cooper Union. After careful consideration and counseling, she opted for The Cooper Union's specialized School of Architecture for its practical skill focus, now thriving in her studies there. 

With one-to-one advising, the focus is on you

When you arrive, you’re assigned a dedicated university counselor who works closely with you throughout your time at EF Academy. Your counselor guides you in taking the right courses to meet your personal, academic, and career goals. They help you identify your perfect list of universities to match your career ambitions, academic strengths, and unique learning style. They mentor you in crafting and sending out strong applications and coach you on how to shine in interviews with admissions officers.

Join guided visits to the campuses of local universities

During peak application season, you go on college tours of local universities to identify what type of school environment you prefer. We also have college fairs twice a year on campus where you can speak with admissions teams from both US and international universities.

Tell your story

A well-lived high school experience is the key to a successful college application. Your university counselor continuously advises you on how to craft your unique story by explaining the strategy behind your academic choices, taking on leadership roles, trying out for new teams, finding a public forum to showcase your work, or volunteering your time for a cause that you care about.
