Below is our recent interview with Joshua Mauro, Associate Director of Educational Consulting and Outreachat at InAmerica Education:
Q: Could you provide our readers with a brief introduction to InAmerica?
A: InAmerica Education was born in 2013 in Philadelphia and grew in New York City, two hotspots for Ivy League colleges. It was founded by alumni of the University of Pennsylvania and the Wharton School of Business. Our mission and specialty is to help our clients achieve admission to the top private and boarding schools in the United States for grades K-12 as well as top colleges and universities globally. We provide support instrumental in helping students attend dozens of prominent colleges and universities. We also match academic and social goals along with transitional support for our students. Our wide-ranging clientele and outstanding consultants have formed a cross-disciplinary global team that makes us one of the best-known consulting companies worldwide.
Q: Who is your ideal client and why?
A: While we are open to working with any student and family passionate about their education, an ideal client has a vision for their future. In our initial meetings with clients, we always focus on their goals. Where do they see themselves in the future and how can we help them achieve that dream? We then work tirelessly to enrich their academic lives with programs and experiences that will uplift the students and make them ideal candidates for their target schools.
Q: Can you tell us more about your programs?
A: InAmerica has four major divisions:
- K-12 Division:
The K12 Division works with families interested in applying to top private primary or secondary schools in North America. For these unique packages, families are matched with an expert consulting team to guide the students on background enhancement, discovering interests, improving writing skills, interview training, and much more!
- College Division:
Our College Division focuses on students applying to the top colleges and graduate schools. For these services, the student is matched with a robust consulting team, including one former top-tier admissions officer. They work together on profile evaluation, academic enhancement, background enrichment strategies, intellectual interest discovery, and application execution.
- League Scholars:
League Scholars, our Enrichment Division, offers a wide array of student programming and experiences, such as tutoring, test prep, research projects, internships, business and art competitions, and more!
HomeOverseas is our boarding program. For students who live abroad but are studying in the New York area, we can offer them upscale lodging. We act as guardians, personal mentors, academic counselors, growth advisors, college counselors, and emergency contacts for students in the U.S. We accompany students throughout their entire process of living, studying, and progressing to higher education, and act as a bridge between the student and parents, as well as between the school and parents
Q: What can we expect from InAmerica in next 6 months? What are your plans?
A: Over the next six months, we are planning to host a number of events, including a business pitch competition and an interview and resume workshop. In addition to these programs, we expect to have another top-performing year in regard to our admissions results. Last year, 61% of our college students gained entry to a top 30 college or university. And 50% of our K12 students gained admission to a top 30 school. We expect to see even stronger results in the future!
Q: What is the best thing about InAmerica that people might not know about?
A: While we may focus our work on students, we are a resource for the entire family. When a client signs up to work with us, they aren’t simply sending their child to a camp or working on an application. They are choosing a partner to travel alongside them during their educational journey. Someone to be a trusted resource, educator, and friend. Ensuring the whole family feels comfortable with our decisions is key to maintaining a positive and productive relationship.
