For us three founders, Lucent Education isn’t just a business endeavor. We started with a collective vision in helping families similar to ours – those with limited knowledge of the opportunities of US colleges/graduate schools and even less information on the process itself. We operate with a double bottom line – our aim is to be accessible to applicants that are from families that may not have the full means to access high end-super star admissions consultants that cost $15,000+.
Our expertise and track record would allow us to charge these incredibly high prices since we are a high quality program with the experience and expertise to work with families that can more than afford the high price tag. But that wasn’t our vision; we decided to re-imagine a world in which this quality of service could be provided to a larger audience to even out the school admissions playing field. With wonderful non-profits already servicing low income families, we knew that there was a gap of students that deserved the coaching and expertise these two very different groups of people already have access to.
What we dreamed up was an à la carte service that is provided online – but, one that never dilutes quality of service.
We customize our service to what you need. Perhaps you’re great at research, but need support with application essays. Or, your parents are marketing professionals and capable of supporting the writing components of the application, but don’t quite understand the undergraduate system in the US. We work with your specific strengths and needs so that you’re not paying for an all-inclusive service that you don’t need. You’re also not paying for rent or travel time and other unnecessary overhead that comes with a formal office or tutoring center. However, you’re still getting access to personalized, one on one expertise and coaching that would often carry the much higher price tag.
