“Whether you didn’t receive an offer of admission from your top choice school, didn’t get the financial aid package you needed, or are coming to the process after the admission season, there are many reasons why you may still be seeking the perfect independent school fit for you. There are many excellent independent schools who accept applications after traditional deadlines have passed.

Our SSAT test prep program is customized to address each child’s individual strengths and weaknesses. Based on the results of an initial assessment, we develop a customized preparation plan to arm students with powerful and up-to-date test-taking strategies for all sections of the SSAT. Tutors monitor growth and adjust instruction, so all the tutoring is customized to the students’ specific needs. Students will learn how to make the most of their time, and answer the questions with a deeper understanding of how the test is constructed. Many students feel test-taking anxiety, which can affect their score, and that is why stress-reduction techniques are integrated in the instruction process.
