Our Story

We believe students are more than their test scores and colleges are more than their rankings.

Higher education is the gateway to expanded opportunities for advancement, yet far too many high school students fail to realize those opportunities. We set out to fix a flawed college admissions process.

 

Vision

A world where every student understands and appreciates his or her unique talents and pursues interesting career paths well-suited to those abilities.

Mission

Expand college access and improve collegiate outcomes.

Important Milestones

We’re proud of everything we do (even when we break stuff), but these accomplishments stand out in our journey to help students identify their best collegiate pathways.
