SSAT/ISEE/HSPT: What you need to know about the SSAT/ISEE/HSPT Exam
The SSAT/ISEE and HSPT are exams students from elementary to high school take in order to get into competitive private, independent, or Catholic high schools. Thousands of students take these tests each year. Their results will have a direct impact on their ability to get accepted into these schools. Be sure to research your preferred school to determine which test is required and prepare accordingly. Keep in mind, many schools are open to accepting more than one type of exam.
SSAT/ISEE/HSPT - Our Approach
Every student preparing for the SSAT, ISEE, or HSPT sits for a full-length diagnostic assessment before enrollment, or at the beginning of their program.
Detailed Score Analysis
Areas of strength, weakness, and overall ability are assessed before the start of any personalized program. We build a unique set of aggressive, yet realistic, goals for each student.
We meet with our parents and students to discuss results, share our analysis, and create shared goals and expectations.
Strategic Instructor Pairing
We pair students with instructors who approach academic problems from their same perspective. Students who have a propensity for math tend to approach both math and verbal problems from a math perspective, and vice versa.
Each program is built upon four components that lead to test-day success:
- Strengthen core knowledge
- Develop concept identification and concept-specific skills
- Learn and apply test-specific strategies
- Build retention and mastery through repeated, timed practice
