- Test Prep
Note: Choose one of blocks 1-8
The SSAT (upper level) class, offered by Pillars of Learning, provides a unique and proprietary data-driven approach which has produced the most efficient score-improvement model to date. Unlike most test preparation which is built on “strategies”, our methodology is built on cutting-edge research and the results speak for themselves.
Over the past two years, our students have had a 28 percentile point increase on the quantitative section, 12 percentile point increase in reading, 15 percentile point jump in vocabulary. Considering that the class shifted from in person in 2019 to online in 2020, the methodology stands unparalleled on its consistent results.
The class itself consists of 11 remote sessions of instructional lecture and group work along with two opportunities for practice tests, which can be taken synchronously with a remote proctor or asynchronously.
While the first week of classes introduces critical information before the first practice test, the remaining classes are entirely unique to each class, built on class trend. The second and third weeks of the course pinpoint exactly what students need to be doing to shift established patterns of cognition, rather than drilling content.
All test results and tailored recommendations for how to continue preparing up until the next test date are emailed to both parent and student when the course concludes.
Students receive all requisite test materials including practice tests and customized worksheets.
