Your college journey starts here… planning, preparation, and personalized guidance for college-bound students


Our Mission:

We motivate and inspire individuals to identify and achieve their greatest potential by 1) conducting psychological tests to better understand what areas of interest might spark effort 2) nurturing these intrinsic interests into talents through internships, college classes or work experiences, 3) developing key skills needed to succeed along the college path, and 4) preparing, planning and guiding the execution of their college admissions strategy.


Master Counselor and Instructors

Ralph Becker, the counselor, has over 11 years experience coaching students on applications and guiding them in selecting and designing their optimal college path.

Our master instructors know their subject matter thoroughly. Over the last eight years, our master writing instructor has helped students on anchor essays, SAT prompts, thesis papers, and even the Concord Review.

Personalized College Plans and Curriculum

We tailor our college plans to the individual needs of our students. Over the years we have created our own copyrighted vocabulary program, along with scores of essay prompts to provide the most effective tools for our students.

Nurturing Potential

As many students involved in the admission process are aware, or soon learn, there is more to getting accepted into the very selective colleges than high grades and test scores. Students really need to passionately pursue activities that show their individuality; they also need to attain recommendations and write essays that make them come alive to the admissions office. Not an easy task for even the most seasoned PhD, let alone a senior in high school.

Ivy College Prep, LLC offers a full range of services, from tutoring and test preparation to college counseling and planning, to ensure your student comes off the page, to the admissions office, as a qualified, fully capable, three-dimensional applicant. Just as the college admissions process changes, and in April 2016 it will with the new Coalition for Access so do we.
