About us - Atlas Academy

Together, we're opening new doors!

Mission and Vision

Atlas helps motivated, curious students actualize their academic and professional potential, and sets them on a path to top global universities.

Our goal is to inspire young people to develop themselves and use their skills and abilities for serving those around them!

Our Team

The founders and mentors at Altas are students and alumni of top international universities. We are disappointed with the subpar and often unethical tutoring-admissions consulting services being offered to clients across Europe, as well as a lacking high school education model that fails to meet the needs of the more motivated student. As a result, we pooled together our expertise and built Atlas to tackle these problems, offer a better, more rigorous, ethically-sound alternative. We focus on the individual, take a holistic approach to self-development, and create a safe and supportive environment where every student can feel at home.

How We Differ

Unlike many other admissions consultants, Atlas mentors have themselves successfully navigated the enormously competitive top university application process. After reflecting a ton, sharing insights, and spending years teaching other students to replicate this success, Atlas mentors know the process inside out and can confidently assist the student in every step. However, we offer no shortcuts and, with us, the student will end up working more than on their own, or with other consultants. But, in the end of the day, they will be able to call this success their own and will be adequately prepared for the challenges to come.

Atlas Values

We believe in equal opportunities. Hence, each year we support a number of very talented, but financially disadvantaged applicants pro bono.

We also believe in honesty, transparency, hard work, persistence, and the value of education as an end in itself, rather than a means to an end. We strive for community engagement, public service and, in the long-term, have a vision of recreating the Platonic Academy and the Aristotelian Lyceum, reigniting a passion and respect for learning within society as a whole.

How We Work

We aim to work only with hard-working, highly-motivated students from across Europe and the globe. Thus, our services are only available to candidates who pass our selection process. The process consists of an application, which includes a personal statement and an interview, made available to the candidate after a free initial consultation with an Atlas university expert. We also take into account the student’s GPA, formal academic and extracurricular achievements. This assessment also ensures that any student we take on has a high chance of acceptance and stands to benefit from working with Atlas.

We now have a waitlist. Due to excess demand from students and the rigorous training that new mentors are required to undergo before they can start working with students, candidates who pass the selection process will be asked to wait for 1-2 months until they are matched with a mentor and can start preparation. The waiting time might prove shorter or longer depending on which packages the student acquires, and other factors. The waitlist does not apply to candidates applying to universities in France, the Netherlands, Italy and Spain.

We offer scholarships to cover the preparation costs. This year, 3 exceptional students from across Europe will be chosen and prepared to apply to their dream schools at no cost. The scholarship application is part of the aforementioned selection process, is need-based (only academically high-achieving students whose families are financially-challenged will be eligible) and conducted on a rolling basis.
