Our Philosophy

"Education is the most powerful weapon we can use to change the world" - Nelson Mandela

College admissions is all about strategy and executing a game plan to paint a compelling individual story of your student that best showcases your student's strengths and unique attributes. 

A typical high school counselor is responsible for over 200 students and usually doesn't have time to give your student the personalized attention that's necessary to gain admission to your student's top-choice colleges. Many times, school counselors use cookie-cutter approaches.

At Clarium Education, we understand that every student is unique and cannot follow a one-size-fits-all playbook. We provide customized advising and coaching for your student to be successful.
