High School Admissions Practice Exams

First, practice tests are given periodically to help identify strengths/weakness, group similar students with similar goals together, and compare to future practice tests.

Prepare with Weekly One-on-One or Group Lessons

Our goal is to improve in your student’s weak areas in individual or group lessons and make it fun and painless. John aims to consolidate knowledge they have seen in school, but may have forgotten after the test. John’s goal is to help students learn the material so well that they never forget it. Then, they can easily pull it up for a test and later apply it to their lives. Lessons start many months or years before the exams for optimal results. Lessons are typically once per week. We have weekly homework to reinforce what they learn in session and in school.

High School Information & How to Rank Choices

If you’re not sure what high school is best for your student, we can suggest which would be the best fit, which they can get into, and which tests they should likely take. We have troves of data from previous students and their practice tests to help determine if they are on the right path. Additionally, you can review research we’ve updated on each school like:

Some of the best all girls high schools in NYC We can also provide information with school ranking when applying. For the TACHS, each school gives scholarships/admissions based on how you rank them. It is easier to earn a scholarship or entrance to most schools if you rank them higher. There is a delicate balance that needs to be applied to achieve maximum results.

High School Admissions Applications

We will make sure you write your best application you can. We will not write the application for you. These applications often have essays. Some of the scholarship exams like Notre Dame Academy require an in person essay. We will not write anything for you but we can tell you how we think it can improve and if it is adequate for your abilities and your goals. This will help the student write better essays in the future. We have some excellent writers who also work as writers or editors.

High School Entrance Interview Prep

Interview preparation for schools like Regis, Marymount, Sacred Heart, and Mary Louis Academy. Only some schools require interviews for admissions.

High School Entrance Choice

After you’ve opened up all of the doors, it’s time to choose one. A lot can change between when you are preparing and when you choose. Our tutors can offer our opinion on what we think might be the best fit.
