Singapore College Consulting


Singapore Counseling Services: What We Do

Welcome to Singapore, a state where the chili crabs are as fiery as the competition for a college spot. The city might be small, but the dreams are big, especially in premier institutions such as United World College of South East Asia (UWCSEA) and Singapore American School (SAS). Top students from Singapore compete for very limited spots at elite US colleges every year and go through the application process. But here’s the catch: navigating the world of college applications is often like solving a Rubik’s cube blindfolded – daunting, complex, and requiring a level of strategy that’s tough to master without guidance.

At IvySummit, we transform this complex process into a streamlined journey, guiding you every step of the way towards your college aspirations.


Our Process

IvySummit is your ally in the bustling world of college applications, just as dependable as the iconic Merlion statue in Singapore. For over two decades, we’ve simplified the complex college application process for Singaporean students. Our team includes former admissions officers and alumni from elite colleges, and they know how to add the right amount of spice to make your application stand out in this competitive landscape.

Strategic High School Timeline Planning

The timeline to college applications can sometimes feel like Singapore’s F1 Grand Prix – it’s fast, high-stakes, and one wrong move can send you spinning off track. At IvySummit, we’re like your pit crew, keeping you in the race. We work with students to create a comprehensive timeline that factors in every important deadline from SAT/ACT exams to early decision and regular decision dates. With us at your side, you’re always on track, and there’s no fear of running out of fuel on the final lap. Want to get started? Contact us today to get your timeline in place.


Extracurricular activities are like the hidden gems in a college application. They reflect your personal interests, reveal your character, and, let’s be honest, they help you stand out in a crowd of equally talented students. But piling up a list of random activities? That’s as productive as trying to eat soup with a fork.

What really matters is how these activities tie into your unique narrative, how they’ve shaped you as a person, and the skills or experiences you’ve gained along the way. It’s this essence that the admissions officers are looking to uncover.

We understand this perfectly. Our team will help you identify and shape your interests, turning them into compelling stories that will catch the attention of the admissions committees. 

Crafting Your Perfect College List

Building a college list can sometimes feel like trying to find the perfect pair of shoes. You want something that fits perfectly, matches your style, and is comfortable for the long haul. It’s not about picking the ones with the most glitter, but the ones that enhance your stride.

Many students tend to base their decisions solely on college rankings. While they provide a good starting point, they don’t necessarily equate to the right fit for you. The ideal college list should balance your aspirations, match your academic profile, and align with your personal and financial circumstances. Each student has a unique college list fit, and our team of professionals are experts at identifying it based on your profile.


The importance of essays in your college applications can’t be overstated. They are the stage on which you get to perform your one-person show, the spotlight focusing solely on you. Unlike test scores, GPAs, and extracurricular activities, essays provide you with a unique opportunity to bring your personality, values, and voice to the forefront.

However, many students approach this task as a formal report of their life, cramming it with jargon and grandiose statements, when what it really needs is a simple, heartfelt narrative. Remember, colleges are looking to understand you, your values, and your potential contributions to their campus.
