About LionRock Education

At LionRock, we believe in an asset-based approach to education. In our learning community, we value who they are, not who they should become. We help all students - despite their grades, race, or aspirations - to reach their true potential. We want our students to become better learners, communicators, and change-makers. In the process, we cultivate in our students a deep love of learning.

Our Capabilities                    

  1. Long-term strategic planning
    Simply put, we look beyond college. We don’t plan for students, we plan with them. Either during sophomore year or the application process, we encourage our students to reflect on their feelings and reasons for their actions. More importantly, we help them recognize their strengths and the areas they need to improve on.

  2. Experience
    Our team consists of experienced admission counselors and teachers that understand how the American education system works. Furthermore, the more we understand, the more we recognize that there isn’t a “one size fits all” game plan in this system. We dedicate time to understand our students and provide the advice they need to hear.

  3. Inspire growth
    At LionRock Education, we are focused on growth, not just academically, but personally and emotionally. From 6th to 12th grade, students are experiencing the most rapid and significant changes of their lives. Many experience not just success, but also hardships. We don’t call them failures - we call them opportunities. We encourage students to experiment, be it with a new language, sport, or simply a morning ritual.

Our values

  1. Integrity
    Integrity and honesty are at the core of our company. We provide the most accurate advice and deliver on our promises.

  2. Excellence
    Our clients will be served with the most knowledgeable and experienced consultants in the industry. We set our bars high and expect the same from our students.

  3. Social Responsibility
    We strive to better people’s lives with access to education. Every year, we volunteer to guide low-income and minority students in the college application process.
