Our College Admissions Advantage

A Unique Application

Each year, 75,000 Chinese students go to study in the United States, making it important to stand out from the crowd. NCPA's college counselors guide students to make sure their college lists and application both reflect the individual student and also showcase the student's unique strengths.

Expert Advice

Students complete the college applications process through the Junior Seminar and Senior Seminar courses. They also meet one-on-one with their college counselor to find the best fit. Parents benefit from a series of parent workshops to demystify the Western college application process, which has important differences from the Chinese one.

Colleges Come to You

Over 60 colleges visit NCPA annually to entice our students to apply. This variety ensures that our students make the best-informed decision to find the schools that fit them - whether it's a well-known state university in California or New York with hundreds of Chinese students, or a small liberal-arts college in the Northeast with excellent academics and an intimate setting.

All Hands on Deck

It's not just our college counselors who know their stuff. Every teacher has gone through the same college applications process as our students, and our teachers are alumni of the same wide variety of schools to which our students apply. This means students are surrounded by a network of mentors and support resources. It's especially exciting when students are accepted to the same alma mater as their teacher!

Finding the Right Fit

Our college counselors are professionals committed to finding the right fit for each individual. By contrast, unscrupulous college agents in China are worried about putting in the least amount of work possible for them to be paid their high fees. Our approach means that our students find the institution that fits their dream; their approach means sending applicant after applicant to the same list of ten schools which are well-known in China.

College Acceptances

Social-Emotional Counseling

Counselors help students develop positive attitudes toward self, school, family, and community. We help students explore who they are, what they want to do in the future, and how to achieve their goals.
Image

Individual Counseling

Counselors meet one-on-one with students to address issues professionally, confidentially, and respectfully.
Image

Advisory

Counselors facilitate the planning and delivery of the advisory curriculum in grades 7-10.
Image

Student Support Teams

When students need additional help to be successful at school, counselors serve in a team of adults that also include the student's teachers, the Dean of Students, and principals. These teams create individual action plans for student success.
Image

Small Group Counseling

Counselors meet with groups of students to find solutions and resolve conflicts, helping our students to achieve the social excellence that is the school's mission.
Image

Senior Seminar

Our college counselors teach semester-long Junior and Senior Seminar courses to orient our students towards the college admissions process, life in the United States, and personal growth.
Image

Parent Workshops

To support our Chinese parents' understanding of the Western education system, American culture, and college admissions process, counselors deliver parent workshops several times a semester.
