NYC PRIVATE SCHOOLS ADMISSIONS TESTING AND PREPARATION
Admissions to NYC private schools is an extremely competitive and stressful process for you and
your child.  While you can prepare attractive personal essays and leave a good lasting
impression during the interview, it is much harder to prepare your child to score at the 90th
percentiles on admissions tests  to be accepted. We help children of all ages to maximize their
chances of being accepted into a private school by preparing them for a vigorous admission
testing process - general academic readiness, IQ, reasoning skills, critical thinking, and academic
achievement tests.  We offer the smart way to get through this grueling process and to ensure
your child's future academic success.  Your child deserves the best.

It is never too early to start preparing for the admissions process.

To start, we provide IQ testing, cognitive testing, and achievement testing to children of all ages.
You can request an IQ test scores and/or academic test scores for your children now, way before
they have to sit in for the actual admissions IQ test.  Find out where your child stands in terms of
academics and various cognitive skills and determine which skills are weak and must be improved
before the actual admissions process begins. We will prepare your child for the private school
admissions testing.  We will allow your child become familiar with the admission testing process
and ease test anxiety and increase self-esteem. It does not matter how old is your child now, as
IQ test scores are always compared to the current age norms.  It is always better to start
preparing the for admissions testing early, so that your child has enough time to strengthen the
academic and cognitive skills that will be vigorously tested during the admissions.

Most private middle schools, high schools, boarding schools and military schools use  
standardized tests that measure verbal and quantitative reasoning, reading comprehension,
essay writing and mathematics abilities, as well as overall ability to learn and quickly acquire new
academic material. High scores on standardized admissions test are required, but strong critical
reasoning skills, memory, attention to detail, quick and accurate information processing, good
organizational and planning skills, and sustained focus are also essential for private school
admissions testing.

We provide
educational coaching and cognitive training to improve reading speed and
comprehension, attention, reaction speed, sustained focus, reasoning and logic, for overall
enhancement of cognitive and learning abilities to meet the increased demands of a middle
school academic curriculum.
Our approach is based on latest achievements in
neuroscience
that help improve attention, concentration, short term memory, organization,
reaction speed, reading speed, reading comprehension, logic, critical thinking, overall brain
functioning and, consequently, confidence, motivation and academic performance in any subject.

Some students who suffer from ADHD, ADD, LD, Dyslexia, Slow Reading Speed, Attention Deficit,
Auditory or Visual Processing Disorder, Math and Reading Learning Disorders, Dysgraphia, or
Test Anxiety, may qualify for
test accommodations (e.g., extra time on standardized tests,
extra breaks, scrap paper, calculator, separate and quiet testing location, read and re-read test
questions and instructions, indicate response on the test booklet). Test accommodations allow
students compensate for their neurological and psychological disorders.
