Sao Paolo College Consulting

Sao Paulo

Sao Paulo Admissions Consulting

Welcome to São Paulo, the heart of Brazil, and the hub of education with top institutions like Colégio Visconde de Porto Seguro and St. Paul’s School. It’s a city where energy and ambition fuel the day, much like a well-crafted cup of cafezinho. 

Each year top students from Sao Paulo enter to compete for limited spots at elite US colleges. The race can feel like a marathon, full of competition and high stakes, where everyone is vying for the spotlight. But don’t let the intensity overwhelm you, that’s where IvySummit comes in, with two decades of experience under our belt and a team of professionals who are ex-admissions officers and alumni from top colleges, we’ve perfected the rhythm of the college application process. We know all the twists and turns, and we’ve led many students to the grand finale using our insider techniques.

Sao Paulo

Our Process

We’ve helped countless international Brazilian students glide through the application process. We offer a tailor-made choreography for every student to ensure that you stand out on the dance floor of admissions, shining in your unique light.


Essays are the linchpin of a college application. They do more than test your language skills; they offer an opportunity to showcase your individuality and tell your unique story. However, many students grapple with this aspect of the application – how to express themselves effectively and authentically?

At IvySummit, we’re here to bridge that gap. Our team can help turn your ideas into a compelling narrative. We assist in capturing your experiences and thoughts in an authentic way that represents not only your intellectual vitality, but also your unique personality.

High School Timeline

Creating a high school timeline is a vital step in the college application process. But many students often underestimate its importance or get lost in the nuances of it. It’s not just about hitting deadlines but about strategically planning your high school years to make the most of your potential.

That’s where IvySummit steps in. With our comprehensive understanding of the college admissions timeline, we help you create an action plan, right from course selection to test preparation to college visits. We strategize to make sure that every year of your high school journey is well planned and contributes meaningfully towards your college goals.

Expanding Extracurriculars

Extracurricular activities are often seen as the side dish to the main course of academics in the college application meal. However, they are much more than that. They’re the unique spice that adds flavor to your application and helps you stand out from the crowd of academically talented applicants. Unfortunately, many students either fail to recognize their significance or struggle to present them effectively.

Our experts guide you in framing your extracurricular involvement in a way that complements your academic narrative and aligns with your intended college major. We’re here to ensure that your application reflects a well-rounded candidate – a scholar, a leader, a community member, and an individual with unique passions.

Building a College List

A college list requires careful research, introspection, and a realistic assessment of your academic profile. Many students falter in this step, either aiming too high without considering match and safety schools, or selling themselves short by not reaching for their dream schools.

At IvySummit, we’re here to ensure that your college list isn’t just a roll call of universities, but a strategically curated selection that matches your academic abilities, aligns with your career goals, and suits your personal preferences. Our experts will  guide you in constructing a balanced college list that optimizes your chances for admission.
