VoicED is a one-of-a-kind academy founded by a trained educator with years of experience in education and college prep in the San Francisco Bay Area. Founder and CEO, Ava Mariya Gencheva, wanted to create a different kind of college admissions counseling and college prep environment, one that focuses on the whole person and provides supportive and encouraging coaching that empowers students to realize and harness their strengths and gifts. Before founding VoicED, Ms. Gencheva served for more than a decade as a Program Director and a curriculum development expert at several private elite schools in the Bay Area. She studied law at New York University School of Law, and before that, education, culminating in B.S. in Education.
A Note From Ava
At VoicED, we are educators and parents ourselves who have become experts in all that it takes to prepare for a college career. From research to college readiness and from test prep to the admission process, we are intimately acquainted with every aspect of college preparation. As teachers, we know how to help high school students prepare so that they are successful in being admitted to the college of their choice.
Together, we can help students identify their strengths and start envisioning their path in life. We’ll even help them take the first steps on that path. Having the support of a knowledgeable Sherpa and coach from outside the family can be crucial in demystifying the college prep and application process and making goals more achievable. We remove the anxiety from the college admissions experience so that our young mentees can focus on their assets and strengths instead of on their insecurities.
I’ve been an educator all my productive life and I take pride in it. We have seen children blossom under our care and become valuable people in society. We have been with them through their pain and their glory and we know what it takes to graduate from college with flying colors. Here’s our contribution as our services to the student community.
We will help you find and share your story and shine doing it! We can’t wait to get started!

A skill, hobby, or talent you want to develop for its own sake, because you enjoy it. In-fact, your passion finds you most of the time, and all that is needed from you is to keep an open mind and be ready.
Colleges look for grades, they look for extracurriculars, but most of all, they look for passion.
