SSAT Testimonial Highlights

Veronica Pang, University of Toronto Schools

"Hi, my name is Veronica Pang and I’m currently attending UTS, also known as the University of Toronto Schools. Let me tell you this. I’m not part of the administration there, so I really have no concrete idea how they decide who to let in, but I do have the wealth of the actual experience on my hands, and I am here to share it with you.

Jenny, University of Toronto Schools

"Frankly, when I was first introduced to PREPSKILLS®, I thought it was just another preparation program that parents send their kids to in a frenzy, afraid that their own preparation plan wasn’t strong enough. After experiencing the benefits of PREPSKILLS®, I realized that I was partly right- the PREPSKILLS® staff taught me things that my parents would never have even thought of teaching me, but it was better than what even commercials described other programs as.
