Private School Admission: Preparation is Key

If you have decided on private school for your child, you’ve probably already set aside thousands for tuition, researched your options (do you want a co-ed school? boarding school? specific extracurricular offerings?) and attended open houses on your short list of prospective institutions. If you’re ready to apply – often a year in advance of your desired start date – you may already be realizing that the private school application process can be a stressful one, even with all the prep work you’ve already done. You may need to collect supplementary data from your child’s current school and reference letters from his or her teachers. And then, it’s time for the testing.


Private School Admission 101

If you have been wondering about private school as an option for your child, you're not alone; in 2014, thousands of Canadian parents enrolled their kids in private or independent schools and preparatory academies. Though the Ontario public school system is generally well respected, for some parents who are seeking an academic edge for their children, private school is the only way to go.


US College Admissions: The PREPSKILLS Advantage

Narrowing down your short list of US colleges may be the easy part. Perhaps you have a talented child who wishes to pursue his goals in a State-side college that excels in one particular area, such as sports or the fine arts. Maybe you yourself attended an elite school and you wish your children to carry on the family tradition. Or perhaps you are an expat living in Canada, but your kids have dual citizenship and you are happy to let them select the American university of their dreams.

"Alex found your program to be excellent preparation for the SAT. The site in Mississauga that the classes were held at was easy to get to and very conducive to learning. Thank you to your school and in particular, Miss Casey for her great teaching style which Alex found very helpful in preparing for the SAT."

PREPSKILLS provided a small SAT preparation class; hence I was able to focus on my areas of weakness. My Geometry has improved quite substantially. The practice questions were very useful and I can always use it to improve myself. PREPSKILLS really prepares me for a 3.5 hours SAT exam and take away the nervousness I feel about the writing the SAT."
