Arlington College Consulting


Arlington Consulting Admissions Counselors: A Look at our Approach

Arlington, Virginia! A city that’s about as close to the nation’s capital as you can get without having to pay DC parking prices. With the Washington Monument practically visible from your backyard, students here from schools like Bishop O’Connell High School, The Potomac School, and others are just as impressive as the landmarks surrounding them. But even with the hustle of DC nearby, the college application process can make even the busiest Beltway look like a breeze.

But fret not, this is where IvySummit comes in. We’ve been turning dream college destinations to reality for the past 20 years. So, ready to take the stress out of the college application process? Let IvySummit show you the way.


Our Strategy

Our strategy is simple: We leverage our team’s collective expertise, to map out a personalized journey for each student. We understand that each student is unique, with their own aspirations, strengths, and passions. Hence, we don’t believe in a one-size-fits-all approach. Instead, we take the time to understand our students, and then create an individualized blueprint that sets them up for success.


Writing a college essay is more than just showcasing your writing skills; it’s about telling your unique story. It’s your chance to show the admissions committee who you are beyond your grades and test scores. At IvySummit, we guide our students through every step of the essay writing process. From brainstorming topics and crafting compelling narratives to revising and polishing the final draft, we ensure your essay highlights your individuality and intellectual vitality. So, let’s craft that unforgettable essay together. Connect with us today and let’s get your story heard!

Building a Timeline

Building a timeline can seem like a daunting task. It’s like trying to solve a thousand-piece puzzle without the box to guide you. At IvySummit, we take that mystery away. We assist you in setting a clear and comprehensive timeline for your college application process, ensuring that all those puzzle pieces – from your academic achievements and extracurriculars to application deadlines and SAT prep – find their rightful place. With us, you’ll navigate the application process without the last-minute panic or missed opportunities, making your journey to college smoother and more enjoyable.

Intellectual Vitality

Intellectual vitality is not just about being a bookworm; it’s about being passionately curious. It’s the sparkle in your eye when you talk about your favorite book or the animated gestures you make when explaining a complex theorem. It’s Sherlock Holmes getting excited over a three-patch problem or Einstein sticking out his tongue at a complex equation. With IvySummit, we’ll help you bring out your intellectual “Sherlock” or “Einstein,” because colleges are not looking for just students – they’re looking for thinkers, innovators, and world-changers. Ready to show them your spark?

Extracurricular Activities

Extracurricular activities are the sprinkle of excitement on the sundae of your college application. They add color, depth, and flavor to your profile. We at IvySummit understand the power these activities hold, so we help students like you explore and expand your interests in meaningful ways.

Whether you’re passionate about community service, athletics, the arts, or any other endeavor, we guide you in developing these interests further, adding substance to your application. We help you understand the importance of consistency and progression in your extracurriculars, so your passions don’t just look like a laundry list, but a cohesive narrative.
