How can you find the best private school for your child?

When determining which private or independent school is the best fit for your child, it's important to make sure that your child is excited about the new school environment. Open houses at Massachusetts private schools will be held over the course of the next month, and visiting schools will give you and your child important insights into the best school fit. It is also important to visit because schools keep track of students who do visit and use this information to assist with the application process. Visiting a school shows them that you are interested. 

How can I make the most of my visit? Don't be hesitant about asking questions that will assist you in the decision-making process. Here are some questions you might want to ask:
  • Where do students study?
  • What sports are available? 
  • What services are available to students (for example, college prep counseling, tutoring, etc.)?
  • What activities and services are available to help students get settled (academically and socially) during their first year?
  • How big are the classes?
  • How is the curriculum structured and how much freedom is there in course selection? 
  • What activities (music, clubs, etc.) are available for students?
  • How successful are the school's graduates in applying to high-ranking colleges? 
  • What is there to do on weekends? For boarding schools, do most students stay or leave campus on weekends?

Is Your Child Going to Retake the ACT or SAT 
Test this Fall? 

Plan for your child to take a standardized test at least twice to give them the best chance of a high score. 

The next SAT will be November 4th and then December 2nd. 
The next ACT will be October 28th and then December 9th.
Our tutors have been fully trained in the new content 
and test-taking strategies of both the SAT and ACT tests. We focus on time-management and customize our instruction to meet the needs of each student. 

If you are not sure whether your child should take the SAT or ACT, please see the article below.

SAT vs. ACT: Choose Wisely

We often see students who feel more comfortable with one test over the other, so if you have the time to start early, we can create the best action plan for them moving forward this spring.
