"My college application experience with Levia has been fantastic. She is an open, easy to talk to, and vastly experienced counselor, and I couldn’t be happier with my decision to work with her. As an international applicant, I did not know too much about applying to top-tier U.S schools, but Levia’s expertise and experience ensured that the process was smooth and as stressless as can be. Through countless edits, Levia helped fine-tune my essays so that they were ready for the admissions officers. She brought invaluable criticisms and insights on how to focus my essays on things that truly represented my passions. Levia also made sure my Common Application activities were well rounded, represented my hard work, and were presented in the best light possible.
I definitely realize that I had many weaknesses working against me throughout the application process, and that deferral or rejection from a hyper-selective school such as University of Pennsylvania was more than likely. However, I have no doubt that having Levia as my counselor gave me a competitive edge in the admissions process. I would not have gotten into the school of my dreams without her, and I am extremely thankful for all her help!"

“Working with Levia has been such a wonderful experience and we are most grateful for all the time, energy, and guidance. We appreciate how Levia helped move the process along and all the calm reassurance and wisdom imparted along the way. Levia was open to different after-high-school-options of interest to our son. We appreciated her no pressure, good information approach.
Thanks for helping my daughter throughout the year and in particular with her waitlist options. I know she made it challenging for you. I appreciate all your support and wise words.”

"Levia is a terrific colleague, and it has been my privilege to know her over the years as each of us has served in a few different roles. One fundamental thing Levia brings to everything she does is breadth of understanding...I know very few other colleagues in my profession who understand working from the college and high school sides of the desk, international and domestic, involvement in NACAC, and from the sort of perspectives and experiences of being a leader at ACT.
The consummate professional, Levia is someone who I know brings consistency, thoroughness and care to all her work, and to all her connections with colleagues near and far.

Levia is a dynamic and passionate educational professional. She has a keen sense of strategic marketing initiatives and best practices in educational services and testing. She is also able to very quickly create close connections with students, parents, and professional educators, a tremendous asset in any educational setting.

I have always found Levia Nahary to work in an intelligent and professional manner. She was a great advocate for her students always going the extra mile to ensure they sought the best colleges to meet their needs.
