Both of them returned to Hong Kong in 2002 and after over 7 years in investment banking, they were inspired by their career exposure and years of commitment to and continued affiliation with their boarding schools and universities; and decided to embark into the field of education.

By drawing upon their uniquely different yet highly complementary educational paths, their mission is to help students bridge their education gaps. At ARCH, they hope that students will gain skills and experiences that will take them through their academic journey and beyond, into life!

"Socrates has greatly benefited me and I’m definitely going to retake this class as I strongly believe the skills are retained through practice. Ultimately, this would help my future with no doubt, we have to have a clear mind on what’s happening around us as we’re living within the same society, it affects us anyhow. Furthermore, we should have the ability to have good analysis from multi-perspectives to make reliable judgments in the future. Socrates has it all. "

"I found the entire preparation experience very informative and rewarding. The preparation helped me in two ways. Firstly, the suggested reading helped me to further consolidate my understanding about the subject of psychology. Secondly, the whole preparation enabled me to be both relaxed and confident in the interview. "

"Thank you for your guidance and support - whether it is offering strategies on applying to schools, giving me insights into each school, boosting my profile with ECAs, or keeping track of my application. I cannot feel more comfortable working with any other people than with ARCH!"

ARCH Community Outreach

In 2011 ARCH established ARCH Community Outreach (“ACO”), a non-profit charity (IR File No. 91/11870) aimed at broadening Hong Kong youth’s exposure to international education experiences. 

ACO was originally funded through a gift from the founders of ARCH Education. Annually a portion of profits from ARCH Education is donated to ACO to continue its outreach initiatives. ACO received endorsement from St. James’ Settlement in 2012 as a partner charity. St James’ Settlement has been providing us guidance and support in relation to our programs since we started for which we deeply appreciate. 

ACO'S PROGRAMS

ACO collaborates with academic institutions, corporates and NGOs to organize, support and deliver various Widening Participation Programs and Widening Access Programs.

Widening Participation Programs are open to all students residing in Hong Kong and include the Global Aspiring Medic Conference (GAMC), Hong Kong Inter-School Mock Trial Championship (HKIMTC), and the Young Laureate Award. Through these offerings, students have the opportunity to learn from world-class professors, receive sponsorship to travel to the US for international competitions, and scholarship to attend academic summer programs in the UK/US.

Institutions that have supported Widening Participation Programs include: The University of Hong Kong, Empire Mock Trial, Directors of Studies, Panel Heads, School Heads and faculty members from top UK and US Boarding Schools; as well as Fellows and Professors from the University of Cambridge, the University of Oxford and Columbia University.

Widening Access Programs are highly selective and aim to provide high-achieving under-represented students residing in Hong Kong with exposure to careers and university application support to UK and US. ACO also provides school training and workshops for participating schools based on selection criteria.
