Common Core 7-8
Our 7-8 Six Month package consists of two 2-hour classes each week for 24 weeks, for a total of 48 classes.

In addition, we also cover any Science, or Social Studies material, if our student needs it. Every class ends with our student's Instructor assigning appropriate homework for them to complete by the next class. We prepare our students to master the NYS Common Core Curriculum to ultimately do well on their Citywide and Statewide Examinations.

The SSAT/ISEE is made for students in grades 3 through PG and is administered on the Elementary, Middle, and Upper Levels. There are two types of SSAT/ISEE test administrations: the Standard administration, which is given on eight Saturdays during the academic year at test sites around the world, and the Flex administration, which is an individual or group test administered on any date other than the eight Standard dates. The SSAT/ISEE if for students that are seeking entrance to private or independence schools throughout the world. The SSAT/ISEE is also a Norm-Reference Test, so your grade is a reflection of how you did verses your peers.
