Q: How would my child get to Ivy Garden for the after-school program?

Q: Does Ivy Garden guarantee admission to an Academic Center or specific high school?
A: We are proud of our high success rate but recognize that winning acceptance to any competitive program requires a combination of student aptitude and drive, along with the efforts of parents and Ivy Garden. In short, we can boost your child’s chances of admission dramatically, but can’t guarantee it.
