Elite Scholars of China (ESC) has successfully helped over 450 students gain admission to the most selective colleges in America. A team of devoted education experts and graduates of top colleges, we strive to provide not just application guidance but also more holistic support, mentoring students as they discover who they are and what motivates them.
Our four-story building in Beijing’s Chaoyang District is home to a
vibrant community of students and mentors. Admitting roughly two of
every five students who apply to our program, we select strong learners
who, through interviews and writing samples, demonstrate intellectual
curiosity and commitment to personal growth. Whether students are
debating one another in a weekend enrichment seminar or chatting with
consultants over our daily home-cooked lunch, they are forming bonds
that will last well beyond the application season. In fact, we stay in
close touch with our alumni even after they leave for college.
We want students to graduate from our program feeling not just excited
about their collegiate futures; we also want them to leave for college
with a strong sense of who they are and ample confidence in their
ability to make a smooth transition to American college life. To achieve
this growth, we empower our students to explore opportunities to get
involved in school or community activities. Through extensive group and
one-on-one mentoring, students develop their long-term interests and
build foundational skills that will serve them well in the college
application process and, most importantly, beyond.
Our low student-to-consultant ratio (at most 8:1 during the application
season, often even lower) is proof that we prioritize the progress and
success of each individual student. We believe that the better we know
our students, the better we can support them: recommend resources that
inspire them, suggest colleges that suit their interests, and encourage
them to achieve their best written work on applications. Moreover, we
take care to communicate with students’ families, providing regular
updates and arranging in-person meetings to discuss big decisions.
We look forward to continuing to guide China’s brightest students to
opportunities that will empower them as future leaders of China and the
