Your Guide: Mark A. Montgomery, Ph.D.
Listen to Mark explain why he created this unique program.
Mark Montgomery, Ph.D.,is a leading independent university admissions counselor in the United States. Montgomery is an experienced educator, university admissions consultant, and youth mentor advising students around the world in selecting and applying to American universities. He has guided hundreds of students, 97% of which have received offers from at least one of their top three choices. While he credits his students with their own successes, he is happy that about 65% of his students who vie for the Ivy League are successful.
As a life-long educator, Dr. Montgomery has won several teaching awards and has served as an external evaluator of university teaching and learning programs, including programs at Yale University. Before becoming a college coach, he served as an Associate Dean at the University of Denver, a professor of international relations at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology, an instructor at Harvard University, an admissions counselor at Fort Lewis College, and a high school teacher at St. Mary’s Academy in Denver. He has consulted with the English Schools Foundation in Hong Kong on how to improve their post-secondary advising program.

about your student being left without expert guidance, & missing out on critical information
your time on Google searches, Reddit threads, gossipy webpages, and listening to advice from anywhere
the best for your student & family, but not knowing where to turn for personalized guidance
I couldn’t be more pleased with the value, as well as the end results. I can only imagine how much bumpier it would have been without your services. Besides your expertise in all aspects of the process, you gave our daughter confidence, motivation and accountability.
Parents and Students Say...
Not only was Nichole accepted to her first choice university, she was offered an astounding scholarship and financial aid package, without which, she could not have attended. In part, this was occasioned by the good grades our daughter consistently earned throughout high school, but especially to the guidance and expertise of Mark Montgomery during the application process.
