The College Admissions landscape has changed drastically over the past 21 years since Insight Education was founded.
Since 1999, Insight Education has advised thousands of students and their families as they embarked on their college admissions journey. Our dedicated team of education professionals is committed to providing personalized and comprehensive guidance through every facet of the high school experience and college admissions process.
Beyond test scores and GPA, we seek to foster curiosity and intellectual rigor in our students. Our values emphasize building sincere relationships with our families, anchored in trust, honesty, and a commitment to purposeful, compassionate listening.
Our rich history and experience, along with our understanding of high schools and the holistic approach colleges employ as they evaluate applicants, sets Insight apart in our ability to help students and families realize their educational goals. As our students transition into adulthood, we prepare them to leave Insight with the tools to engage in the lifelong learning process wholeheartedly, and to benefit from all that college has to offer.
