Who We Are:

About App-Ark

App-Ark Education Consulting was founded in 2009 with the belief that the value of one’s education is more than a degree. We do not simply go through the motions of throwing our students into the best schools. We strive to break down traditional student-teacher relationships by mentoring our students to think introspectively and critically. Here at App-Ark, we aim to prepare our students for their journey to the US, both academically and culturally.

 

Our company has emerged as one of the premier education consulting companies in the greater Shanghai region, growing at an average rate of over 100% per year. We promote a dynamic, challenging, and most importantly, intimate environment that balances passion with tangible results.
