Since I officially opened Michael Jordan College Prep in 2014, I’ve worked with hundreds of students whose test scores were a barrier to college acceptance. Each has had their own unique struggle. Some needed to increase scores to get into college at all, some needed to raise scores to gain acceptance to a dream school, and others wanted or needed better scores to earn merit aid.
At MJ Prep, our goal is to create a path to success for every student. We believe students learn best in an environment that is relaxed, but structured, and fun.
Our students have earned hundreds of thousands of dollars in scholarships to schools all over the country. I haven’t kept scholarship data the whole way, but I do know which colleges and universities our students have been accepted to and ultimately attended.
Here’s the short list:
Baylor University – Waco, TX
Boston College – Chestnut Hill, MA
Brigham Young University – Provo, UT
Northwestern University – Evanston, IL

When I started MJ Prep, I had no idea how rewarding tutoring would be. It’s truly the most incredible feeling when a student who has been struggling with certain courses or concepts is finally able to master the work and believe in themselves. We want to help all students find that type of success, whether it’s on a test, daily work, or a college entrance exam.
