Ardent Results

Over the past 10 years, more than 90% of Ardent Counseling’s high school graduates have attended top 30 universities with the majority of them receiving at least one admission from an Ivy league school. This year’s Class of 2020 results have been just as successful! These Counseling students have done swimmingly and have been admitted to top schools such as Harvard, MIT, Stanford, Yale, Princeton, Columbia, UPenn, Cornell, Brown, UC Berkeley, and UCLA. It is our pleasure to have guided these students and their families throughout the years during their pathway to college. Ardent College Counseling is not just a service -- it is a community!

Speech and Debate enhances a student's public speaking skills. In this program, students will learn how to become effective communicators, avid researchers, and critical thinkers.

To help students achieve top grades in their subjects, our Accelerated Common Core Math programs will strengthen the student's understanding of Common Core topics before it is covered in school. These courses are designed to supplement and advance students while they are concurrently enrolled in their math class at school.

Ardent Academy's innovative science programs emphasize learning science by "doing" through problem-solving, hands-on exploration, and scientific experimentation. Students will be prepared to participate in any science fair and Science Olympiad.

These courses are for students to explore reading and writing in an interactive, creative environment, but also challenge them to think critically and analytically. During the weekly two-hour forums, students will meet to close read and discuss a variety of texts amongst peers, thereby improving research and presentational skills. Students will also emulate writing techniques they have learned to craft original works.

Most of all, this program serves to inspire students and make reading and writing fun. Reading and writing develops the mind, imagination, and confidence.
