Tests and the Rest: College Admissions Industry Podcast

Jun 28, 2022

Ready to learn the history, philosophy, and practice of an experienced independent educational consultant?

Meet Steve Gardner, a Harvard grad and an educator who has been there before and understands how frustrating the college admissions process can be. He helps teens successfully pursue the college of their dreams without sacrificing sleep, fun, or friends along the way. He believes the world needs every student to reach their full potential, and college admittance shouldn’t hold them back. Before becoming a teacher, Steve was a personal development and high-performance coach. He created the Ivy League Challenge to help parents and their students understand that the best way to get into a top college is to find your core values, pursue your interests with genuine curiosity, and make an impact in your community.
