About EDPLY Research Academy

Our Story

While there are many extracurricular options available to students today, we recognize that few are as impactful as research programs, which provide hands-on experience and the opportunity to work alongside leading experts in a field, enabling students to gain valuable knowledge and skills in their chosen disciplines. At EDPLY, we design and develop academic research programs taught by the world’s top professors from elite universities, specifically for high school students and young undergraduates. Our goal is to foster a community of passionate and talented learners who will pioneer groundbreaking research discoveries in the future.
Jack Ho

Meet Our Founder

After graduating with distinction from the University of Michigan (BBA in Finance), Jack landed his dream jobs as a derivatives trader and a management consultant at some of the world’s biggest firms. However, he soon realized that he wanted to pursue a more purposeful path. His transition into the education field as a university admissions counselor gave him firsthand experience with the challenges that passionate and driven students face in accessing university-level research opportunities. This inspired him to launch EDPLY with the goal of bridging the gap between talented students and impactful research initiatives. Drawing on his insights and experiences, Jack was determined to make a positive impact on the next generation by providing equitable access to education resources. Today, his vision and passion continue to drive our company’s mission to eliminate barriers to academic growth and empower students to achieve their full potential.

What does "EDPLY" mean?

The name fuses “ED” for education with the phonetic similarity to the word “APPLY”. This connection reinforces our goal of not only providing students with a rich intellectual experience but also empowering them to “apply” their newfound knowledge to their academic pursuits and beyond.
