The Admissions Angle Offers Mentorship and College Application Services

The Admissions Angle Offers Mentorship and College Application Services

The Admissions Angle alleviates the pressure of college applications and channels it productively to help your child pursue what he loves.


The Admissions Angle prepares students for college admissions by advising on class selection, extracurriculars, competitions, standardized testing, and the college application process. Students in eighth-eleventh grades can receive mentorship services to help them find their academic path while developing extracurriculars to complement it.

Executive Director Alex Loveless began his career in education as an English teacher, then worked as a test prep teacher for four years and with a college admissions consulting company called Ivyzen for another four.

“We really enjoy creating relationships with our students to help them get into the schools that they want to,” says Loveless. “We try to get them to figure out what their interests are not just by thinking about it or assuming from their high school classes what they’re interested in, but by actually doing stuff that high school curriculum doesn’t give them the opportunity to explore.”

The Admissions Angle offers two different types of services. As early as eighth grade, students can receive mentorship services to help them find their particular academic path while developing extracurricular activities to complement it. This is done through weekly meetings where each student is given specific tasks or assignments that range from reading articles to creating blog pages that relate to fields they’re interested in. Loveless noted business and entrepreneurship as an example of a field many of his students are interested in.

“Any students we have who want to do something like that, we encourage them to find entrepreneurship competitions in their local communities, online competitions, or start their own clubs based on entrepreneurship,” says Loveless. “In ninth or tenth grade, students don’t really know what they want to do yet, so we’re kind of just prodding and trying different things and going in different directions.”

The Admissions Angle also provides help for college applications and college essay editing for juniors and seniors in high school.

“We are always trying to come up with a story or an angle. We don’t want our students to be well-rounded. We want them to be angular and have spikes in their subjects that they’re really passionate about, because we see more successful admissions outcomes for students that chose something and go in that direction one hundred percent," says Loveless.
