The Pre-BCA program gives students a head start on mastering the key content and skills required to ace tough high school admission tests.

Our experienced teachers coach students on how to efficiently and accurately answer questions within given time constraints.

Timed Practice and Mastery

By the end of the program, students have encountered 2000+ math problems (800 directly from past BCA tests), and completed 30 literary analysis essays.

Comprehensive Application Guidance

Before the due date, our expert teachers review all parts of a student’s application, give valuable feedback and help to revise the application essay.

3-Day Year End Boot Camp

BCA admissions test is at the beginning of the year. Our 3-day boot camp during the holiday break helps to fine-tune test-taking skills and build key momentum right before the exam.

Mindset Building

For many 8th graders, this is their first encounter with a high-pressure performance test. We teach them how to handle the stress, competition, and techniques for mental stamina.
