FANWOOD, NJ -- Ivy Educational Services (Ivy Ed) is now officially part of the Collegewise network.
For years, families in northern and central New Jersey, as well as families across the country and the world, have turned to the experts at Ivy Ed for guidance and support leading up to and throughout the college application process. Nicole Oringer, founder of Ivy Ed, and her team will continue to provide the unparalleled services, now officially under the Collegewise name, and with the added benefits of additional resources and tools.
Oringer founded Ivy Ed in 1994 and has more than 30 years of experience advising students. Ivy Ed has assisted hundreds of students with academic services, including curriculum tutoring, study skills, test prep, college searches, and the college admissions process. The Fanwood location is at 250 South Ave. (entrance on Martine) in downtown Fanwood.
She and her team work tirelessly to help students find the best-fit college for their strengths and goals, and look forward to enhancing their services as they join the Collegewise team.
"In Collegewise, we've found a partner who shares our mission," said Nicole Oringer, founder of Ivy Ed, and now Senior College Counselor at Collegewise. "Now, all of our students will benefit from our team approach and the specialized knowledge that both teams bring to the table. We look forward to partnering with Collegewise to ensure that all of our students reach their academic potential.”
Collegewise, the nation’s largest private college counseling network, has more than 60 admissions experts and offices across the U.S.. Collegewise offers services for students starting in middle school and throughout high school. The scope of Collegewise services include assisting younger students with fostering emotional intelligence, guidance with college searches and planning college visits, and advice on testing and applications.
“In August 2018, I was excited to announce the addition of Ivy Educational Services to the Collegewise family. Today, as we officially rebrand their offices as Collegewise, we take another important step in our integration,” said Joel Block, CEO of Collegewise.
“Their years of experience as counselors and tutors, combined with extensive knowledge of hundreds of colleges and universities, are priceless tools that many students will benefit from long after their high school and college years. We look forward to continue working together to provide students and their families with the best advice, support, and encouragement possible under the Collegewise umbrella.”
Collegewise is out to change the world of college admissions. Since its doors opened in 1999, expert Collegewise counselors have guided more than 12,000 students to successful admissions outcomes. Collegewise believes that applying to college should be an exciting time for students and parents, not a stressful, anxiety-ridden rite of passage. Every year, its counselors work with a small caseload of students, creating customized plans and setting deadlines to ensure that students complete their applications thoughtfully, effectively, early, and without mom and dad having to step in to take the reins.
Collegewise’s mission is both simple and ambitious; it strives to provide top-notch admissions advice to students who need it, regardless of their ability to pay for one-on-one counseling services. Every year, thousands of people read the Collegewise founder’s blog, tune in to its free webinars, and attend its college admissions seminars across the U.S. and Asia.
