A New Framework for College Applications

Green Ivy Educational Consulting has been supporting students for over two decades.

Our expertise is on executive functioning skills, which include organizing, planning, prioritizing, and completing tasks, as well as adaptable thinking. All these skills are critical to helping students manage the entire college application process.

Our approach is student-centered, research-based, and results-focused. Our 4-part framework focuses on supporting students in developing their own blueprint for success, highlighting the importance of executive functioning skills development.

Our goal is to make the college applications process less stressful and life-affirming by helping students build upon their own unique skills and interests while developing their narrative writing abilities to feel confident and prepared for college and beyond.

Praise from Students and Parents

“From last summer when we met with you and you laid out an objective systematic plan for [our daughter]... until the end of the process you and your team were just amazing.”

— S.V., Mother of Claremont McKenna College Student

“I came to Green Ivy because I was looking for guidance with my college applications and SAT prep. I wanted to improve my critical thinking skills to do well on the SAT and create stronger college essays. Ana and her staff listened to my opinions about what I wanted in a college experience and used their expertise to collaborate with me to create a fantastic college list. Ana and her staff spent getting to know me as a person beyond the application process. Everyone in the office was always incredibly welcoming and kind.”

— E.N., University of Notre Dame Graduate

“Ana would always ask me to write out my future goals. This helped me visualize my goals and create specific plans to achieve them. Whenever I felt anxious or stressed about school or life, I would reflect on my ultimate plans and re-organize my thoughts. I applied these skills to my career after college and I co founded a tech startup and received interest from a startup incubator!”
— J.C., Loyola Marymount University Graduate

“I want to let you know I truly appreciate what you have done for my
daughter. Not only have you helped her in the college application
process, you have also given our family peace and sanity. Thank you.”
