Palo Alto, California

Palo Alto, California was the original location of Lyon Prep Academy.   For several years we operated as a college admissions counselling and SAT prep and program solely in this location, about a mile from Stanford University, allowing us to interact with some of the brightest students in the country, helping them build their confidence, improve their writing ability and SAT scores and to gain admission into some of the America's most prestigious universities. 

Since then, we havefocused more on online tutoring and guidance, and I have hired a staff of highly qualified and specialized tutors in different locations to help students in all aspects of their college application process, standardized test prep, and academic careers.  Simultaneously, Lyon Prep has been creating partnerships with different institutions from around the world, and our success with this had made it impossible to maintain our original Palo Alto office as a permanent location for face-to-face counselling and tutoring.  

Still, we continue to have many students from the Palo Alto area and so Mark, the founder, is able to come back occasionally to offer face-to-face counselling and tutoring as well as SAT group classes.
