In ancient times, knowledge was passed to the next generation by village elders as everyone warmed themselves around a great ﬁre. They hoped to prepare youngsters for their future. In modern times, Curio keeps this tradition alive by hosting “Fireside Discussions.” Join our Fireside discussions and gain insights to help you make the most informed college decisions. Watch, listen, and engage with current students who are studying abroad, former admissions officers, and successful young professionals.
Getting accepted to a great school is becoming more difficult: high marks are no longer enough to snare the attention of admissions officers. Learning to express yourself compellingly in writing is becoming a necessary skill for every college-bound student. Curio’s essay workshops will help you tell “your story”. We refine your basic writing skills, improve your storytelling, and ensure you present the best “you” to admissions officers.
Every college has its own unique ecosystem. Campus design, school spirit, dorm availability, course curriculum, and even the local weather can affect your study experience. Our campus tours will take you to some of America’s most interesting campuses. Explore which campus and school atmosphere is a perfect match for you.
Curio believes that passion is one of the most important factors in determining academic success. We like to get to know our students and discover what inspires them. We use their hobbies and interests as a starting point, and explore which can bring out their passion using our database of hundreds of extracurricular activities. We push our students to get involved, try new things, and take responsibility. We conduct follow up meetings and suggest new activities to further refine our students’ passions. Curio students know who they are and what they want.
We want Curio students to have access to the best information and experiences, but more than that we want our students to be happy. We have built a community that shares a passion for learning. We host Mock College Interviews, Open Houses, Social Impact Events, and student mixers. Students are welcome to participate, ask questions, and learn from our guest speakers, counselors, mentors, and other Curio students. The college application process can be stressful, but Curio’s community is here to offer support every step of the way.
