LogicPrep is a vibrant, New York-based college prep community with branches in several locations across Latin America. Our team of college advisors, writing coaches, and academic mentors is comprised of former admissions professionals, creative artists, experienced entrepreneurs, accomplished playwrights, and novelists. Because of this, the culture of the company is spirited and truly fun! Despite our high standards and far-reaching goals, we reject the formulaic, skill-and-drill environment that surrounds the stereotypical college admissions testing and application process. Instead, we offer a comfortable study space and foster a dynamic learning process with the goal of producing happy, confident, well-rounded, and fulfilled lifelong learners.
