The work we do

The world of higher education has changed almost beyond recognition over the past 20 years. It has never been as hard as it is today to get into the top colleges and universities around the world. Access to the top US colleges is a challenging business, and unless you know the rules of the game, it is becoming almost impossible to win without expert support and guidance.

At Ivy Central we will teach you the new rules of the game, help you find a list of colleges best suited to your unique personality and aspirations, support you in choosing a theme for your application, ensure you write winning application essays, and work with you throughout the college application journey to ensure success.

We work with students from all around the world. Our largest student base are based in India, the Middle East and the United States.
