Led by Angela Suh Um, a former admissions officer at Harvard and MIT, Boston Academic offers unparalleled expertise and a unique insider’s perspective into admissions. With the highest credentials from the top universities in the country, our Consultants will help you become that desirable applicant to the nation's top colleges, preparatory schools, and graduate schools. Then, we prepare a fully customized strategy, enabling you to present the most outstanding application package possible.

A Customized Approach

We recognize that every student is unique—with a unique background, a unique set of strengths and weaknesses, and a unique appeal that should be effectively presented to convince the admissions jury to admit you. In admissions lingo, we call this a "hook" or "mark of distinguishing excellence”.

We take the time to get to know our students, their personalities, their goals, their quirks. And then we create a custom-tailored strategy to work on the weaknesses, and enhance the strengths. Whether you’re a rising senior, or a 7th grader, we will work with you to identify the right goals and help you achieve them. From course selection and summer planning to application essays and interview prep, we’ll be with you each step of the way.

Proven Success

Our results speak for themselves: year after year, our students are accepted to the top colleges and universities in America, beating the odds. With us, they reach goals they couldn’t have achieved on their own. We’re confident that we can give you a definitive advantage over your peers in the application process.
