July 8th – Standardized Tests, Applications & EQ Skills ~ Private School Admissions

Entry into private school is not a simple matter of enrollment and paying the tuition. Many private schools require the child to successfully complete a standardized preparation test, such as the SSAT to gain admission. There are fundamental skills and facts that students need to master in order to do well on standardized tests.

In this webinar you will learn about the different standardized tests, how to best prepare for the tests, understanding what the grading means and how it is utilized in the admissions process, how to prepare for admissions interviews, and the other aspects of a holistic application.

As a teacher, cancer-survivor, and mother of three boys, I know that being a parent can be challenging, especially in the face of life’s curveballs. When that happens, hard work and a positive attitude go a long way.

I have a passion for giving students a better chance to succeed. Through my experience in education, I realized that so many children and parents don’t have the resources to pursue higher education and reach their goals. That’s how PrepSkills was born.
