Executive Team

All of our counselors are trained in SEL (Social & Emotional Learning) and are recent graduates of Ivy League schools and other elite institutions including Stanford University and Williams College. We pride ourselves on our ability to match each student with the perfect counselor based on the counselor’s expertise, shared interests, and background.

Knowing that their counselors recently succeeded in the college admissions process gives our students confidence that we understand the current landscape and can help them focus on what really matters. Christopher Rim oversees all of the counselors and is highly involved in the development and success of each student.

Are you a student athlete? We have a former US Open record holder and two-time Olympic Trials competitor who can help you navigate the complex recruitment process.

Interested in science and medicine? We have a counselor who is a published scientific author in multiple academic medical journals and has worked internationally on healthcare policy, infectious diseases, and drug development.

Need to work on your essay writing? One of our counselors started presenting literary analysis at university conferences in tenth grade and contributed to an amici curiae brief in the Supreme Court case Obergefell v. Hodges.

Want to take your volunteering to the next level? From Congressional Award Gold Medalists to Donald Kennedy Public Service Fellows, our counselors know how to get the work you do noticed.
