Approach

Whether your teenagers are already fully engaged and focused or still in the process of discovering their personal potential, we provide the competitive edge.

As early as middle school, our students identify and grow their academic and extra-curricular gifts -- a game-changer for top tier colleges admissions. We help students create outstanding applications, memorable portfolios, and a clear plan for the future, applying growth mindset throughout. In the long term, by connecting with their passions, building their skills and aligning with their values, students leverage their talents to design a life of purpose.

And we support parents by answering questions promptly, creating a personalized timeline, and helping them to make all the small education decisions, from summer programs to test prep, that add up to success. Our approach is to be strategic while honoring the holistic needs of the teenager.

 

As a result, we help families transform the dreaded college admissions process into a journey of self-discovery, turning stress and confusion into excitement and inspiration.
 

We are also committed to enhancing college access among underrepresented communities with our growing non-profit initiative. A portion of revenues supports this mission, so Anja Education clients are making a difference along with us.


Anjali is in a unique class—I’ve never met a college advisor as intentional and truly interested in my son’s well-being as Anjali. I appreciated her balanced, knowledgeable, creative, professional, discerning support. I would highly recommend working with her; well worth the investment!

personal notes from college admissions staff

“Let me start by saying that I really enjoyed reading your application! I cannot tell you how impressed the admissions committee was with your submitted poetry pieces and performances. As you stated in our interview, “Poetry is something you need to feel, you don’t always have to understand it.” Your poetry certainly moved us!”

Admissions Officer at a top liberal arts college to Marie, a creative writing major, who received 12 scholarship offers up to 136K.
“I just wanted to tell you how much I enjoyed reading your application essay. I read many, many essays each day. It is unusual for one to grab my attention and make me see the world from a new perspective.

I have been trying to learn to provide a little “oxygen” myself. Our counseling center here has trained many students and staff to serve as better support, not just when someone has a crisis, but also when someone just feels some stress. Colleges are often very good at providing formal counseling and psychological treatment, but we are working to do more to provide day-to-day emotional support. It sounds like you understand this very well, and maybe will want to join the support network yourself.
   
Thank you for brightening my day with your writing!”
