SSAT and ISEE Preparation
SSAT and ISEE tests are the standardized tests used for admission to independent day schools and boarding schools. For many students, these tests are their first exposure to high-stakes testing.
Summit understands the unique considerations for helping younger students succeed on standardized tests. Our program directors work with families to create a sensible, individualized testing plan for each student—a plan that addresses which tests to take, when to take them, and how and when to prepare for them. A good testing plan is customized to the student. It puts the student’s well-being front and center, prioritizes school work, and doesn’t give the tests more life than they deserve.
Our tutors are warm and caring, and they understand how to work with this age group. We help improve students’ vocabularies, their fundamental reading skills and comprehension, their problem solving and computational skills (often pushing them ahead of the class in math), and their writing skills, cultivating our students’ ability to develop a clear and organized essay.
We highly recommend that students start the process by taking a free proctored practice test. You’ll receive a detailed score report and analysis which will pinpoint student strengths and areas for development. Your dedicated Program Director will guide you through the analysis.

"We had our last session with Leah yesterday and I have to tell you how exceptional she is. Her command of the ISEE test material was fantastic. Her ability to translate that knowledge into terms a 10 year old could grasp and learn from was outstanding. Thank you again - you run a great program with great tutors!"
