Tyche Academy was founded during the Covid-19 pandemic by three college students from Princeton, UChicago, and Georgetown. Armed with a passion for education and a desire to help the community, 50% of Tyche’s proceeds are donated to Covid-19 related food insecurity relief.
What is Tyche?
Or rather, who is Tyche? Tyche, also known as Fortuna, is the Greek goddess of fortune, fate, chance, and success – often represented by a cornucopia, the horn of plenty. We want to help you make your application the highest quality it can possibly be, so that fortune is on YOUR side! When your application material is carefully crafted in the best possible way, you’ll have an extra element of good fortune and luck in the process! Remember that “fortune sides with he who dares” – dare to choose Tyche.
