In 1998 Charles Bonas created the first American college application programme that fully integrated with the British sixth form curriculum. It was highly effective; a year later our first student won a place at Harvard. In the years since, Bonas MacFarlane has helped hundreds of applicants achieve quite remarkable outcomes: in one recent admissions round, four out of five of our students were accepted to Stanford, out of a total of twelve admitted from the United Kingdom. 

Strategic planning is vital for a good US application. There are an enormous number of American colleges, and each has its own entrance requirements and procedures. Our approach is rigorous. The US admissions programme takes 18 months to complete, and the student is carefully guided at each step by a highly experienced advisor. Our US team includes former deans and heads of admissions of Ivy League and other top US colleges.

US applicants need to polish every aspect of their application. Our rigorous preparation programme was developed with a former director of the US-UK Fulbright Commission. All students need to prepare for the standardised tests. This is handled by the world's leading SAT / ACT training organisations.

In addition to helping individual students, we also advise many of the leading British independent schools on the US admissions process.
