Admission to private, independent, parochial, or selective enrollment high schools is dependent, in part, on High School Entrance Exam (HSEE) scores, and navigating these exams is even more complex than it is for college admissions. From ISEE to SSAT to HSPT to SHSAT, test acronyms—and parental & student confusion—abound.
The journey certainly presents challenges for our seventh and eighth-graders, who must navigate new obstacles. For most, this is their first high-stakes test. What’s more, the preparation process often reveals gaps in skills that students were not previously aware of, and these gaps vary depending upon the depth and rigor of teaching students have received across a range of grade schools they attend.
At Academic Approach, we use our SuperTest to assess your students’ skills efficiently across multiple topic areas and question types at once. Our expert directors use this SuperTest data to customize high-impact tutoring programs for students to help them raise their scores on the HSEEs and develop academic skills vital for success in high school.
