WE, THE EXPERTS
At Sapient (a Ryan Prep Company), we are a small group of elite test-prep instructors, school subject teachers, and college admissions consultants with one mission in mind: empowering students academically. We have worked ardently for more than 15 years to help students maximize their potential and make their way to the colleges and graduate schools of their dreams. Today, as a team, we bring more than 50 years of combined experience and have, so far, taught more than 30,000 students in live sessions, counseled more than 1,500 students, and reached out to more than 2,000,000 online students to help them reach their academic goals.
Our mission does not stop there. We believe that academies must stand for something and offer an array of solutions to meet today's competitive study environment. Our Socratic method of teaching can equip students with the skills and knowledge needed to tackle even the most challenging questions, not by the process of elimination but by fundamentally dissecting the problems at hand and confidently answering without guessing. We call this process the XO Strategies: finding self-reliant ways to go from WRONG to RIGHT.
We have designed our services to challenge those who aspire to excel in their specific fields of study, those who want to revamp their bad study habits, and those who wish to raise their academic standards. Again, we are not your traditional academy. We stand for helping students become self-sufficient, we push our students to their limits, and most importantly, we do everything in our power to help deliver the results students deserve.
So, join us if you are ready for a challenge; join us if you want to change. Together, we can challenge the norms, raise the bar, and help you become a better student, a better test taker, and an irresistible candidate to colleges.
At Sapient, we help students build strong academic as well as professional portfolios, guiding them to present themselves as competitive college applicants. Our programs push students to think outside the box, encouraging them to crystallize their passion and strategically work toward their goals, no matter how big.
