Secondary School Admissions Test (SSAT) Prep

SSAT/ISEE Prep is a test training class, ideal for 8th-graders working  to ace the SSAT, an admission exam required by selective private or parochial high schools. This test is used to gauge students’ academic performance aside from report cards, similar to the way colleges use SAT/ACT.

Because of overlapping similarities between SSAT and ISEE, we offer a group course in the fall where students learn the necessary skills for both.

During Fall 2020, students meet with their instructor once a week through live virtual sessions to learn proven content-related and test-taking strategies to boost their SSAT/ISEE scores on the Reading, Verbal, and Math sections. They also come to MEK’s campus to complete weekly full-length tests in an environment that simulates an official test-day atmosphere.

This course is divided into two groups:

SSAT/ISEE Prep Advanced and SSAT/ISEE Prep

SSAT/ISEE Prep Advanced students are students who have a higher initial evaluation score, are aiming to reach the 99th percentile of test-takers, and are interested in applying to top tier, highly competitive private schools.

SSAT/ISEE Prep student are students who are aiming to reach the 90th percentile of test-takers and are interested in applying to local competitive private schools.

Class placement is determined by an initial evaluation test, target high school list, and our counselors expert recommendations.

In each class, teachers will tailor the pace and strategies to each group’s specific goals and abilities. SSAT/ISEE Prep Advanced students will also practice writing narrative essays in preparation for the essay portion of the SSAT/ISEE and application essays.

One-on-one tutoring is also available through fall and the winter.

SSAT/ISEE Prep 8

This summer only course is a test training class for students who have completed MEK’s Pre-BCA program and are ready to begin early test training for the October or November SSAT or ISEE.

This course is also ideal for students with exceptionally high SSAT evaluation scores (generally 2000+) and are advanced enough to skip our summer foundational class (Exam Prep 8) to go straight into test-training.

Students will learn test-taking strategies and content-related skills to boost their performance on the Verbal, Reading, and Math sections of the SSAT and the ISEE.

This course meets twice a week for 7 weeks during the summer. All students must first complete a qualifying evaluation before enrolling in course.

Expert Instruction

We don’t just give out the answers — our teachers coach students on how to think. Each student learns strategies and skills for arriving at the right answers independently.

We teach students the strategies and skills required to earn top rankings on the Math sections, decipher challenging vocabulary words, and ace the essay portion.

Constant Guidance and Communication

We teach students to take ownership of their progress through regular monitoring and persistent communications on improvements, weaknesses, and study habits.

Quizzes, Drills and Homework

Students receive quizzes, drills, and homework to practice and reinforce skills they’ve learned during lecture.
