Alpha Academia - Sarah Ballard

College Admissions Coach

Alpha Academia harnesses expertise--advice and tools--to give its students everything they need to be successful at gaining admission to their best school.

Sarah Ballard founded Alpha Academia to make top college admissions advice accessible to all. The company launched its inaugural course, The Complete College Admissions Adventure in 2015 and just published its book, Accepted! A Monthly Guide to College Applications and Admission to Any School.

Sarah is a Georgetown University and Law Center alumna. After college, she was endorsed to compete for the Rhodes Scholarship and won the George Mitchell Scholarship. She has her Masters and her Juris Doctor. She was never rejected from a single school to which she applied. This includes the Ivy League, graduate school, and law school. She has also won more than $150,000 in competitive, merit scholarships. She has read and reviewed applications for the Mitchell and Fulbright scholarships and has volunteered to do admission interviews at the undergraduate level.

Sarah knows what it is like to navigate the applications process on her own and has assembled a suite of videos and tools that she wishes she had when she was applying--just for you!
