There is no simple formula for success. We develop custom plans to help students achieve their academic goals."

Academic Competitions

Extracurricular activities make or break a college application. Winning an academic competition is the best way to showcase your academic strengths, to present your passion of academic focus, and to stand out from the peers.


GPA gives admissions officers an idea of how hard you worked in high school and where your strengths and weaknesses lie. It could be the deciding factor between you and another applicant.

AP Courses

Advanced Placement (AP) courses are designed to be college level work. AP classes are significantly important in college admissions to indicate that you can handle a challenging academic workload.

Standardized Tests

The “optional” in “test-optional” is misleading. Better standardized test scores can mean merit scholarships, a freshmen year with no remedial classes, and a competitive advantage for selective-college admissions.

Students love "WECRE8"


“It’s not too early to start NOW. Throughout this program, I have been met so many peers that have taken the initiative to make it happen. I feel really encouraged to upgrade myself and do the same. I have had the opportunity to practice many soft skills that will be very helpful for my future, no matter what I do. “

Gain and Learn


“I learned that creating a startup venture involves cycles of ups and downs. A good idea is not enough. Pitching your ideas to your team, mentor, judges is a very demanding task. I have improved so much in communication, time management and problem-solving. WECRE8 gave us the platform to learn essential knowledge and to apply the knowledge in real life.”

Lead and Create


“WECRE8 gave me a solid foundation for my knowledge in entrepreneurship and how starting a real nonprofit is like. I came to WECRE8 thinking that nonprofit organizations do not need to think about money, but I am really glad that the hands-on experience helped me realize that running a nonprofit is no different from running a business.”
