We develop programs and arrange various cultural exchange and community service opportunities. In addition, we offer SAT prep courses, college counseling services, application preparatory courses, and seminars.

Our high-caliber team consists of experienced local experts as well as educational advisors and associates who graduated from U.S. universities, including Columbia, Dartmouth, Harvard, MIT, Stanford, and Yale.
