Our Mission

We strive to help our students to be all-round in Liberal Arts

The education planning offered offer by Ivylabs has a very strong humanistic spirit. Every person is regarded as a unique individual and accepted with respect and care. At the same time, Ivy Labs aims at helping our students to become all-round in Liberal Arts, which means that apart from the ability of taking exams, they need to have a high moral standard and to be accomplished in arts and sciences.

Due to different national conditions, the east and west have distinctive educational and value systems, which shaped the different attitude and approaches facing the issue of applying for schools and preparing for exams in these two countries. As an educational institution based in the US, Ivylabs cares about the development of individuals, and our major purpose is to understand each individual from their own unique perspective. We want to discover their special characteristics and potentials, and find the perfect school that matches their talent.

During the process of preparing for application and exams, we want to guide students to understand their academic abilities, identify their self-worth, and maximize their potentials. We may try to build up their own unique personalities through morals and values. From extracurricular activities and social practices, we nurture students to care about their social and cultural life, to reflect on the spirit of social responsibility and serving the community. We believe that in the meantime, these “invisible values” will be reflected in their essays and letters, so their personal statements will convey a thick and profound message about their personal characters and sincere emotions, in a comprehensive way.
