who we are

Eli Academy is a private college consulting agency serving students and parents across the world through our locations in New York, New Jersey, Los Angeles, and Seoul.

With the admissions rates at the nation’s top colleges dwindling every year, our experienced team can help students stand out in a way that keeps their application off the rejection pile.

Our company directs our resources into assisting students with all aspects of the college application process. We do not directly assist students with standardized test prep, however we can refer you to one of our partners who focuses on SAT, SAT II, and ACT prep.

our story

Prior to the establishment of Eli Academy, each of our founding counselors had been involved in college consulting independently. From New York to San Francisco, to Shanghai and Los Angeles, our senior counselors, have been using their expertise to help students all over the world attend the college of their dreams.

We realized that our skills and experience would be most efficiently utilized together, and decided to consolidate our efforts and unique abilities to assist a wider client base. Thus, Eli Academy was formed. Today, we’ve expanded our services to students from all over the country as well as the globe and have helped our students gain admission into the nation’s most selective schools, including Harvard, Yale, Stanford and many others.

why us

At Eli Academy we base our consulting work on the belief that the college admissions process is one of the first and most important transitions into adulthood. The process represents a transformation into an independent, capable young adult. While the responsibility this process presents may seem overwhelming at first glance, each student is capable of emerging from it unscathed and happy.

All students have the potential to successfully and effectively navigate the college process and gain admission into a respected college where they can excel in all spheres of life. We keep this philosophy in mind as we guide our students through this stressful yet rewarding process.
