What we believe

All students and their consultants will need to sign an “honor code pledge” before they can work with each other. The code reflects the principles we believe and serves as a foundation for our working relationship with our students.

Lehren Education does not select students based on their standardized test scores or GPA. We do not boast the prestige of the colleges our students get in. However, Lehren Education hopes the family who works with us would agree with the basic principles we believe in.

We see every student as a unique creation, not a product from a mass production assembly line. We believe what the legendary college basketball coach John Wooden’s definition of success:

“Success comes from a peace of mind of knowing that you did your best to become the best that you are capable of becoming”

 Counselor  Honor Code Pledge 

I promise to be honest, honest to myself first, then to the outside world.  I will not lie or purposely twist the facts.

I will not be lazy to write essays for students.  I recognize that Lehren Education’s essay editing role will be  “Read and critique student-written essays for clarity of ideas and effective communication. Assisting them in developing their own thinking which allows them to write their own unique story. “   I understand this approach means it may take more effort and time than writing for students directly.

I will commit my best efforts with no excuses, no procrastination.  I will respect each other’s time, being prepared, and being puncture for the scheduled meetings.

I see college application as a process of helping students to conduct self- searching, searching for who he/she is, whom he/she wants to be.  I will help students to learn the skills of “setting up goals, making efforts, and achieving goals”. I refuse the temptation to compare students with others. Instead, I will measure him/her against the potential they have and the efforts they put in to realize their potentials.

I try not to have the fear of being judged, I will help the student learn important life lessons such as “handle rejections with grace”,  “aiming high and achieve high”

I will think logically, and search best- fit schools for students.  I refuse to fall into the trap of “prestige” and “ranking”. I promise not pushing students to a “big name” school only for my self- ambition.

I will teach students important lessons of being responsible, including being responsible for the final submission of the application materials.  I promise to be as responsive as possible and deliver my work before all deadlines.

I recognize that I am responsible for the final submission of the application materials.  I take responsibility for missing deadlines given all necessary information is provided by Lehren Education before deadlines.
