Schools/Camps/Summer Programs—Academic Achievers To Provide Inside Look At College Admissions

Academic Achievers, a leading provider of private tutoring for pre K-12 students, will hold a special event: “Inside View of the College Admissions Process” at 9:30 a.m., Saturday, June 17, at its headquarters, 2500 Broadway, Santa Monica.

The event is open to area high school students and their parents, and will provide tips on how to successfully navigate the admissions process to get students into their first-choice school.

Guest speaker Jane Gutman, former associate dean of admissions, University of Pennsylvania, will give parents and students an inside look into what really goes on in the admissions office of top universities when they decide who to accept, reject or wait-list.

Students will also be able to take a free ACT or SAT practice test, which includes a free 10-page diagnostic analysis.

“We’re so happy to have Jane, a former admissions director at a top Ivy League school, shed some light onto what can be a stressful and opaque process,” said Janis Adams, founder/CEO of Academic Achievers. “Our mission at Academic Achievers is to best prepare students for college, and the admissions process is clearly a key element of that.”

The event is free, but attendees must RSVP. For more information, and to register, visit

Gutman has been the director of the Western Regional Office for the University of Pennsylvania. She has been working with Westside students as a college counselor for more than 20 years. She holds master’s degrees in both American Studies and clinical psychology.
