who we are
At SeekU, we use research-backed curriculum and cutting edge technology to help students get in to their dream universities. With self discovery at the core of our philosophy, our Ivy League educated counselors encourage high schoolers to explore who they are, find where they want to go, and identify exactly how to get there.
SeekU students have not only gained acceptance to elite universities including Harvard, UCLA, and Stanford, they have also emerged with the self awareness and confidence to achieve their highest potential in all other aspects of life.
Through 1-on-1 mentorship and our innovative digital coaching platform, we help our members uncover the unique and authentic aspects of their personalities, devise a plan to foster and develop those strengths, and make their college applications extraordinary.
