Launching Your High School Passion Project
Dewey Smart is your guide to building something that matters.
We help high school students stand-out with hands-on opportunities to demonstrate their personal interests - bringing ideas to life in order to make an impact in the world and admissions applications.
Most Students Fail to Demonstrate a Specific Interest
Embarking on the journey to college is exciting, but it comes with its unique challenges. By the time they hit 11th Grade, most students have already failed to demonstrate a specific interest in a topic that inspires them to do more.

It’s absolutely imperative that students find a narrow focus to investigate and champion. Universities want applicants who are driven by purpose, and the best way for students to prove themselves is a well-developed passion project.
We’ll Take You From Concept to Concrete Passion Project
No matter the size or scale of students’ ambition, our team of college counselors will guide them every step of the way, so they can stand-out from the boring crowd. Dewey Smart helps students showcase their passions with exciting projects to improve their college admissions potential.
