Ann Lee founded HS2 Academy in 2002, and then later together with Dave Kim, they operated the largest counseling program in the U.S., serving over 10,000 students all over the world. Ann and Dave, the duo wife-and-husband Harvard team, co-founded Ann Lee Consulting (ALC) in 2016 to re-focus and re-build a high quality counseling program, providing high-quality academic and college counseling for a small, select group of students along with a hand-picked team of professional editors and admissions experts. ALC has a diverse caseload of students from all over the world, but only accepts a handful of students each year into its elite counseling programs with a large waiting list for most of the year (it is recommended to register early for any program).
