Congratulations to our students on gaining admission to top universities and private schools!

Written on June 21, 2016

2016 was another highly competitive year with a record numbers of applicants to both top-tier universities and private schools. Larger applicant pools mean shrinking acceptance rates. However, 2016 has been a banner year for KEY with the incredible results from our students. It is often said in the admissions counselling world that the difference between a successful application and an unsuccessful one is preparation.

This year, 90% of our families who used comprehensive admissions guidance services and followed our instructions gained admission to a top private school. Our students’ acceptances received so far this year include:

As Vancouver’s trusted source for admissions guidance, we attribute the success of our students to several key factors including:

  • the readiness of our students for the application process;
  • the preparation that KEY’s staff provided through our assessment
  • training, interview coaching, and admissions guidance;
  • families listening to and following our expert advice; and,
  • the insider knowledge of the admissions process that our staff has from
  • having attended or worked at highly-competitive institutions.
