About Curio

Curio’s mentorship and counseling helps students discover
their passions, gain successful university progression, and
foster effective study habits.

Curio’s cutting- edge mentorship and personalized counseling help students discover their passions,
gain successful university progression, and foster effective study habits to prepare them for an
independent life abroad.

Being admitted to college does not guarantee scholastic success.

Studying abroad should be a transformative experience that fosters intellectual curiosity, cultural dexterity, and self-confidence. Our mock college community ensures our students become decision makers and critical thinkers, as well as develop skill sets that make them unique.

We believe education is the most powerful tool to change the world.

However, education is not about getting a diploma: it’s about exposure and growth. Our goal is that through education one will gain the skills to become a lifelong learner.

Why students love Curio

Bill GUO

First of all, my mentor and counselor helped me with all aspects of the application, which supported me a lot. My mentor arranged a practical timetable. If I did it myself, it would be a mess. My mentor would give me a clear goal to work on at each step. I needed to work hard towards it and was pushed along the way. They offered a lot of help in this respect. I went to the office every weekend to meet my mentor, or communicate with him on WeChat. The communication was always very pleasant. Every time I went, I may have a sad face, but when I finished it was always with a smile, and had a good time chatting with them. In addition, in terms of personal improvement, everything is much better than before when I hadn't joined Curio.

Curio not only helped me with my application but also to improve my English and integrate into an international environment and culture. I enjoyed coming to Curio's office on the weekends. Not only has my English improved, but I have also adapted to an international environment.

Eric CAO

Curio offers more than guidance in college applications: it helps students to grow. Applying to college abroad is unlike applying through China’s college entrance examination, where students are evaluated on their scores. It’s a relatively comprehensive process. The challenge helped me mature and learn to deal with problems. Other agencies have counselors who fill your application and write your essays. Curio expects you to do it yourself with the guidance of a counselor. The college application process is only authentic if you fill in the application and write the essay yourself. Authenticity can move admission officers and help you enter a college that fits you.

Eric ZHOU

I think the biggest thing Curio did for me is to help me decide the application target and let me know exactly what to do. In 11th grade, Curio helped me plan my extracurricular activities, but at the same time, they were able to balance my study time and help me keep good grades in school.

Hua WEI

Curio feels like a family. It asked me deep questions about who I am and what I want to do. I am not a product on the university application assembly line. They made plans for me according to my own characteristics.

Jerry GOU

I don't think I could have got admitted to the universities I did without Curio. Curio helped show me what I was good at and what is special about me. Without my counselor, my essays would not have highlighted my personal qualities as well. Moreover, I was on the waiting list of several schools, and my counselor suggested structures for my emails to those schools, so that I received several offers, so I think Curio has provided a lot of help for me in my applications.

Why parents choose Curio?

Ethan’s Father

Ethan’s teacher recommended Curio to us. We were impressed by Mr. Asher at the first meeting. He was honest and energetic and had unique insights into planning our child’s future. Moreover, we want our children to study in California, where Curio is already well established.

Yvonne’s Mother

Curio has a novel and unique teaching philosophy as well as sincere teachers. Yvonne likes it here.

Justin’s Mother

Curio respects children’s ideas. It is well staffed with foreign teachers, who allow pupils to experience authentic foreign culture. In addition, my child likes both Curio’s environment and its teachers. Classes offered in Curio are challenging, clever and interesting so children do not feel tired.

Claire’s Mother

Curio’s educational philosophy meshes with our own. To choose the right school, we must not only value its rankings, but fully respect our children’s ideas, cultivate their independent spirit, and prepare them to study abroad. We don't know much about studying abroad, and Curio’s teachers provide us with a wealth of accurate information.

Eric’s Mother

We worked with another study abroad agent when Eric was in 10th grade, but later on, we learned they only offered application services and no personalized planning. That was not what we wanted. We turned to Curio and learned about its advanced education concepts and experienced foreign teachers. It is professional, indeed. Afterward, we broke with the previous agent and chose Curio.

Sky’s parents

We have never been to the United States and know little about American universities. After communicating with Curio, I found that its education concept suits us well. Unlike other agents, which only care about scores, Curio values and cares about my child’s thoughts. Moreover, its Chinese-speaking American teachers can communicate with us fluently and truly understand what’s in my son’s mind and heart.
