lanterna’s blueprint for success

We employ our proprietary methodology to pave the way for students to unlock their full potential. Our approach involves pairing IB graduates—those who’ve triumphed within the challenging IB landscape—with current IB students.

They’re deeply familiar with the intricacies of the IB program. Beyond their academic accolades, they’re trained on how to share their knowledge and experience with IB students that need extra support achieving the necessary grades to make them stand out to top universities and employers.
