Texas College Consulting


Navigating Admissions: Your Texas Guide to College Success

 Welcome to Texas, where everything’s bigger, including the dreams of our high school students. In the Lone Star State, the ambitions soar as high as the skyscrapers in Houston and stretch as wide as the fields of Westlake High School. Here, students from the School for Talented and Gifted in Dallas, the School for Science and Engineering, and the halls of Greenhill School are not just mastering their academics but are also setting their sights on stellar futures.

At IvySummit, we understand that being a student in Texas goes beyond Friday night lights and the perennial debate over the best BBQ joint. You’re navigating a world of AP courses, championing extracurriculars, and maybe even finding time to perfect your two-step. We’re here to help you channel that Texas tenacity and charm into applications as impressive as a sunset over the Hill Country.


Our Process

Our process at IvySummit is all about channeling the Texas spirit into a winning college admissions strategy. Just like a masterful rodeo, it requires skill, timing, and a bit of bravado. We start by getting to know you – not just your grades and test scores, but your passions, your stories, and yes, even your favorite Texas pastime.

From there, It’s about finding the right balance between academic rigor and extracurricular achievements, ensuring that every step you take is a confident stride towards your college goals. We guide you through essay writing, application completion, and interview prep, all while infusing your unique Texan flavor into every aspect.

College List

Creating your college list requires careful consideration, a sense of adventure, and an understanding of where you’re headed. At IvySummit, we take the time to explore your academic preferences, career aspirations, and personal interests, just like mapping out the best spots to visit in the vast Lone Star State.

We help you identify a range of colleges that match your profile – from big-name universities that might be the equivalent of bustling Houston, to smaller, niche colleges that offer a close-knit community similar to a quiet Hill Country town. Our aim is to create a balanced list of reach, match, and safety schools, each with the potential to offer you a rich and fulfilling college experience. Let’s saddle up and find the colleges that best fit your Texas-sized dreams and ambitions.

Intellectual Vitality

Intellectual vitality in your college application is all about showcasing your energy, enthusiasm, and ability to tackle challenging ideas. At IvySummit, we help you demonstrate your passion for learning, your curiosity, and your engagement with the world around you in a bold way.

We work with you to highlight instances where you’ve gone beyond the curriculum, whether through in-depth research projects, engaging in spirited academic discussions, or pursuing personal interests with zeal. It’s about showing colleges that you’re not just a passive learner but an active thinker, a student who brings the same level of excitement to the classroom as a Friday night football game. Let’s channel that Texan dynamism into showcasing your intellectual vitality, making your application as memorable as a starlit night in the Big Bend.

Essay Editing

Essay editing at IvySummit is where your Texas-sized stories are honed into sharp, compelling narratives. Our team works with you to ensure your voice shines through, polishing your stories without losing their flavor. We guide you in striking the right balance between showcasing your individuality and maintaining the clarity and structure that make for effective essays. Let’s craft your essays to reflect not just the Lone Star State’s spirit but your unique journey within it, creating a narrative as compelling as Texas’ storied history.

High School Timeline

At IvySummit, we guide you through each academic year with a strategy that aligns with your college goals. We start by helping you choose the right mix of challenging courses and meaningful extracurricular activities.

As you progress, we focus on building a well-rounded profile, highlighting key areas for growth and development. Junior year is crucial for test preparations and deepening your involvement in selected activities, and senior year is all about bringing everything together for your college applications. Our goal is to ensure that by the time you’re ready to apply, your high school journey reflects a narrative of growth, achievement, and readiness for the next big step. Let’s create a high school experience that sets you up for success.
