The Windy City, The Second City, or just "The City."
Whatever you may call it, Chicago is our home.
KEEPING IT LOCAL
Karl, our founder and Managing Director, started his career in the public school classroom. Through the years, Karl has worked closely with thousands of local students and families. He has developed relationships with teachers, administrators, and school personnel all over the city and suburbs, and because of his experience, Karl understands the needs of students in and around Chicago. He turned his love of teaching and counseling students for success in the college admissions process into Academic Angle in 2014. In addition to working locally, Academic Angle also works with students all over the USA, Europe and Asia.
TRANSFORMING THE PROCESS
Our program transforms the way students from Chicago approach the college admissions process. Because we are spoiled with so many higher education opportunities right in our backyard, Chicago students do a poor job of going out of their way to match themselves with schools and programs that really fit them best. Academic Angle is different, because our approach concentrates on the needs, wants, and preferences of our students first, before discussing things like prestige and rankings. Our students learn to think less about what a college can accomplish for them, and more about the educational and career goals that they will accomplish by attending the college or university that fits them best.
CONVENIENCE IS KEY
We know that no student or parent wants to spend countless hours in traffic on the Kennedy Expressway commuting to yet another commitment downtown. Our flexible scheduling options and online consultation options allow our students to participate in our webinars and one-on-one consults from anywhere at virtually any time. Academic Angle also uses Custom College Plan software that keeps everything organized and gives our students direct access to no-nonsense college search tools. When we do meet in-person, we offer to come to your home or meet you at the local coffeeshop or library. Have doubts about online meetings? We've spent years perfecting our online education curriculum with students around the globe, so you can rest assured that it works!
