When we first launched Ivy Advantage Academy in 2010, we challenged ourselves to be different. Instead of the standard test-prep and private tutoring institutions that often felt more like factories than spaces for real learning, we drew upon our own personal experiences to create a unique approach focusing on mentorship, personalization, and accountability.
For the past eight years, hundreds of students—of all ages and backgrounds—have walked through our doors. Our staff has always believed in the value of knowing each one, thoughtfully and caringly honing their individual abilities. We’ve witnessed countless success stories: from massive jumps in SAT scores to acceptance letters from our students’ dream colleges. Even more, we’ve encouraged them to see their education as a tool that can be wielded to produce positive social change.
Now, we have the opportunity to take what has made Ivy Advantage special all these years and make it even better. We’ve partnered with some amazing people, brought on new investors, and transformed ourselves into something bigger and bolder. Today, we’re thrilled to announce an exciting new chapter in our history with a refreshing rebrand. Ivy Advantage Academy is now Intellegym.
Led by our CEO, Frank Wang, and a growing team of highly experienced and ambitious educators, we’re doubling down on our belief that mentorship and long-term commitment to students yields positive outcomes. In addition, we’re expanding the range of services we’ll offer at our brand new, state-of-the-art facility in Huntingdon Valley.
Intellegym will provide students unprecedented access to our center through our Membership model, which offers on-site and on-demand help from our instructors. Also, in addition to our traditional test prep and private tutoring services, we are designing extracurricular programs so students can explore the fields of robotics, graphic design, debate, and much more. By creating a holistic center that celebrates a learning culture, we will continue to help students discover their advantage and achieve their greatest academic ambitions.
Our work doesn’t stop there. Just as we have all these years, we are committed to our strategic partnership with 12+, an education nonprofit working to close the opportunity gap for under-served students in Philadelphia. Since the beginning, we’ve donated over $75,000 to 12+ to help make education a reality in some of the most economically disadvantaged communities in Philadelphia. Intellegym will continue this work by financially supporting 12+, offering volunteer opportunities, and providing free services for those from low-income backgrounds. We believe education is the key to opportunity, and our goal is to make education accessible to as many people as possible.
THANK YOU to all of our past and present students, parents, and supporters. We’ve had an amazing time working with each and every one of you! We hope you will continue believing in our mission to inspire and empower students as we enter this next phase.
Cheers,Ray, Albert, and Frank
