I always felt supported by the US team, including the fact that my counsellor was available for a quick Google Meets even over holidays. The advice I received was always honest yet kind, from the suggestion to broaden my college list to constructive criticism on my essays. I truly felt that the team wanted to help and I believe that they played an integral role in me ultimately being admitted to my dream school!

The university application period was one of the biggest challenges of my high school career and I honestly could not have done it without your help! I’m super excited for the next four years.

The application process seemed daunting and overwhelming at the start especially when there’s so many uncertainties due to COVID. But with the clear guidance from the US university department, I was able to work through them without stress. Their support has been truly indispensable, thank you for helping me get into such a remarkable college!

Thank you for all your work over the last several years. You were a great source of information for our son and for us. It was terrific that you kept the boys on their toes so that they could stay on top of things.

We just wanted to thank you both for all the hard work and commitment you have shown in supporting our son and the rest of the boys in their US applications, especially during this difficult year.

The balance of tasks and coordination of responsibilities was excellent, the attention given to all aspects of the procedure – from help with college choice, to guidance with essay topics and prose, to monitoring of deadlines, and so forth – was absolutely exemplary. I cannot give higher praise to the professionalism, thoughtfulness, and thoroughness of the team. In terms of US Universities, St Paul’s does a job to an exceedingly high standard, and our family is extremely grateful to have had the chance of being guided by them.
