Private School Financing Helps Parents

Parents who want to challenge their children to fulfill their true potential are faced with a wide array of choices today. Public school eligibility in Toronto is largely determined by one’s address, but special programs like French Immersion allow students to range farther afield; there are independent schools, private schools, and with the Internet providing virtually unlimited resources, home schooling is also becoming a more popular and accepted option for parents. Today, more than ever, the choices can seem overwhelming. But if you have done the research and decided on an alternative to traditional public schooling, you might still be wondering how you are going to pay for it.


NCAA? Don’t Forget SAT!

Your teen has long had a dream. It may have started with that gymnastics or Sportsball class you put him in as a toddler; continued in elementary school and middle school as your daughter first made the cross-country team, then took it to OFSAA; now in high school, your varsity basketball star is getting written up in the local papers and dreams of playing NCAA ball in the States and then being signed by a pro franchise.



Sara Thorfinnson, Northeastern University

"When I realized that I wanted to go to Northeastern University in Boston starting next fall, I also realized that I would probably have to write the SATs. The Prepskills SAT preparation course greatly prepared me for writing the SATs. The one on one teacher-student environment allowed for the individual attention needed to improve my weaknesses.

Jenny, University of Toronto Schools

"I thought that PREPESSENTIALS™ was a great course, and gave you a chance to try out new ways of doing things that you never might have thought of before. It was very interactive ( for the most part, but the less interactive aspects of the course were informative and satisfying in their own way), and the hands-on experiences, scenarios, and situations really gave me a new perspective on different kinds of leadership and how to use them effectively. PREPESSENTIALS™ was a great course."
