At Ivy Deans Educational Advising, LLC (IDEA) we have twenty-plus years of experience advising students as they think about how their education can help them reach their goals and fulfill their dreams. Knowing where to study – and how to take advantage of all a university has to offer – can be one of the most challenging decisions you make in your life, and deciding wisely can make all the difference between having a great college experience or an unsatisfying and unhappy one.

Who We Are

With over twenty years of experience in higher education, Frank Ordiway is Ivy Deans Educational Advising.  At IDEA, we know that getting a great education comes down to finding the right fit between you and a college or university. For parents and students, the amount of information and the many unknowns can be confusing and frustrating. What is the right school? How can I best prepare for admission? What happens after the decision? We’ve helped thousands of students as they think about questions like these and about the many options and difficult decisions that go into planning their futures. We know what works, what doesn’t, and why. There are no secret formulas or simple answers in all of this, except to make the best match between student and institution. We have decades of hands-on experience working with students like you – students with dreams and aspirations, interests and goals, and the desire to make the most of them all.
