We offer private and small group lessons in ISEE/SSAT/HSPT. The program includes test-taking skills and content, including interpretation, guessing strategy, time management, arithmetic skills, algebra concepts, geometric reasoning, reading comprehension, vocabulary, grammar, and essay writing.
The ISEE (Independent School Entrance Exam) is a test usually required for admission or transfer to independent schools. Students entering grades 2-4 take grade-specific tests, and students entering grades 5-12 take the test at one of three "levels": Lower (grades 5-6), Middle (grades 7-8), or Upper (grades 9-12).
The SSAT (Secondary School Admissions Test) is another standardized test. Students take the SSAT at one of three "levels": Elementary (for students entering grades 4-5), Middle (grades 6-8), and Upper (grades 9-12).
The HSPT (High School Placement Test) is usually required for admission to private Catholic schools, and it is administered on-site by individual schools. The HSPT is given only to eighth-graders for placement in ninth grade.
