I was admitted ED! Thank you so much for all of the support that you have given me throughout these years. You have always been there when I needed help making difficult decisions and have challenged me to perform to the best of my ability. My high school experience has been significantly better with your guidance, and I know that I could not have done this without you.

Kristina O, Student

Thank you so much for all your guidance for the past years. I’m very grateful that you helped us navigate these tumultuous times, and I’m certain that I wouldn’t have gotten accepted into such an amazing school if it weren’t for you. I can’t express how lucky I was to meet you!

Raymond S, Student

A big thanks to CPSi! Without your great help, our daughter would not have been admitted to Art school... your encouragement, guidance, and help are really indispensable, and we are extremely grateful.
