Honed over years of research and practice, our unique approach helps students and families navigate the admissions processes of universities and boarding schools across the U.S., the U.K., Canada, Hong Kong, and other countries.

  • Future Exploration

Universities highly value students’ aspirations, and they want to help you achieve your goals. Using personality assessments and career interest databases, The Edge’s consultants help students define academic, career, and life objectives, as well as identifying universities that match those aims.

  • Hurdle Jumping

All universities demand that students demonstrate academic competence, and every level of academic achievement requires students to overcome challenges. Our consultants help students maximize their potential and keep their options open by lining up appropriate academic and non-academic support resources.

  • Extra-Curricular Activities

Universities view extracurricular activities as indicators of students’ passion, initiative, and commitment. By working with students to identify their passions, our consultants guide students in selecting and excelling in activities that fit their interests.

  • Story Crafting

With limited time for each applicant, university admissions officers look for applications that tell coherent and compelling stories. With comprehensive knowledge of different universities’ requirements, as well as nuanced understanding of individual students’ profiles, The Edge’s consultants help students tie together their academic and personal stories in ways that fit, both academically and culturally, the universities to which students are applying.

  • The Pitch

Ultimately, applicants need a strategy to present their story of academic and personal achievements. Our consultants help students craft coherent application packages that best showcase their individual stories in the context of specific universities.
