Join the 93% of Krupnick Approach students who soar into one or more of their top three colleges. Head off to a college and a life where you'll be successful and happy.

Here is our 4-step Krupnick Approach in detail:


We take time to learn about you and help you discover your unique skills, strengths, and passions. We then help you design an academic and/or test-prep fit that is fundamentally organized around your distinctive style and your goals and ambitions.


Step 2 – REFRAME:

Many students come to us with the mistaken notion that grades or standardized test scores are a reflection of their intelligence or ability to succeed. Or that a specific score will make or break their futures. This sets them up for an enormous amount of pressure that is both unnecessary and counterproductive. 

We help you reframe the process in terms of opportunities to develop your interests, leverage your strengths, and explore colleges and careers that fit the person you are and shape the person you will become.

Higher grades, test scores, and admissions rates naturally follow, but there’s an even bigger payoff: you will also gain confidence, critical thinking skills, and self-awareness that most young people won’t develop for years.

An undeniable edge for every area of life.

Step 3 – PREPARE:

We believe in a broad-minded approach to college and career preparation. So along with getting you ready mentally and emotionally for your future, we also help you tackle the day-to-day practicalities that must be managed all through the process.

That’s why we have a whole team of Ivy and Ivy-equivalent experts who guide you step-by-step through…

  • ACT/SAT tests
  • AP Subject tests
  • Academic coursework
  • College essays
  • Summer program apps
  • College selection
  • College interviews
  • College faculty-student relationships
  • Post college LSAT, GMAT, GRE tests, and graduate-school applications.


You could say we’re more like academic life coaches than tutors!

Step 4 – SOAR:

Every step we’ve taken with you is designed to help you SOAR.

And this commitment has allowed us to achieve the TOP TRACK RECORD OF ACT/SAT SUCCESS in the test prep world and a 93% success rate for placing students in one of their top 3 colleges.

Even more importantly, our students go on to successful and happy careers because their college and career choices are molded to their passions, talents, desires, and life goals.

Just like this student has achieved:

‘Most of my pre-college, educational life was overshadowed by the “opinions” of uninformed and lazy educational “professionals” and “administrators,” who neglected to identify my learning style, because it was more convenient to give a generic diagnosis rather than to understand my personality and natural intelligence.

My parents hired tutor after tutor to try and mold me from an average/mediocre student
into an exceptional one.

All failed, except for The Krupnick Approach. Joe and his team focused on identifying my strengths and applying them to a systematic process aimed at equipping me with the perspective needed to tackle highly complex problems. This systematic process gave me the confidence and the set of tools I needed to not only compete in the real world but to excel past my peers, taking me from an average C/D high school student to Dean’s list honor student in college.

Throughout college I applied the Krupnick Approach’s process to tackling the challenges of my international business and economics major, becoming well known as an exceptional contributor, receiving praise and accolades for departmental and
campus contributions.

Today, post-college, I enjoy my challenging career as a top performing Account Executive at a Fortune 500 technology company, communicating the value of highly complex emerging technology solutions to customers throughout North America. I still rely on and apply the Krupnick Approach to train, mentor, and tackle the rigors of competing in corporate America.’– Former Evanston Township Student
