Is Your Child Applying to private schools that require admission testing?

Many prestigious high schools require prospective students to undergo standardized testing as part of their admission process. These tests are designed to evaluate a range of skills from logical reasoning and math proficiency to language arts capabilities. Some of the most common tests include the SSAT (Secondary School Admission Test and the ISEE (Independent School Entrance Examination).

Key Tips to Help Your Child Get Ready for the Admission Exams:

  1. Early Preparation is Essential: Start preparing for these Fall exams well in advance. Your child  should become familiar with the test format, types of questions, and time constraints.
  2. Use Practice Tests: Practice exams will allow for your child to understand the types of questions asked, improve their time management skills, and ease test anxiety.
  3. Identify Weak Areas: Focus your child’s study sessions on subjects and/or sections where they show less
    proficiency. Our specialists can guide your child through this process with tailored study plans to reinforce
    these areas of concern.
  4. Seek Extra Help When Needed: A specialist will provide your child with additional support such as focused
    approaches and insights for success.
