From the Founder and CEO of Prestige Education Consulting

My name is John Kim, and I'm the Founder and CEO of Prestige Education Consulting.

I founded the company in New York City with one simple aim: to help students reach their goals. Since 2004, I've had the privilege of working with over 2,000 students, helping them to get into the college of their dreams. Going to a top school requires early planning, expertise, and trust between parents and the consulting company.

Today, we at Prestige College Consulting pride ourselves on delivering the desired results. Every year, we help students get into top colleges such as Harvard, Yale, Columbia, Stanford, Cornell, UPenn, Berkeley, MIT, just to name a few.


We have a team of experienced college consultants, college essay editors, and instructors from Ivy League colleges who are dedicated to helping our students achieve their goals. Our company is based in New York City and now serves students in New Jersey, Connecticut, Maryland, Massachusetts, and throughout the US and overseas.

We assure you that we will be transparent during the whole college admission preparation process and will keep you informed of each step we take. Seize this opportunity and see why we are different from other college consulting companies.

I invite you to work with the best College Counseling Admission Team!
