Tai Abrams, Founder & CEO

Tai had a vision to see all children in NYC be in a position to gain admission into a top high school and have increased access to opportunity to secure a bright future. She knew that information and resources were the main barriers to fully realizing this dream for certain communities. She got busy developing AdmissionSquad as a solution to this very important problem for NYC children. She is a graduate of The Bronx High School of Science and holds a degree in Mathematics from Duke University.
