Like it or not, test scores matter. With test prep in Nationwide designed to help your student prepare for high school entrance exams, AP tests, and more, we can help them to shine.

High School Entrance Exams (HSEE)

Many private high schools require students to complete a High School Entrance Exam (HSEE) for acceptance, placement and even to determine scholarship eligibility.  These schools include but are not limited to Tower Hill, Tatnall, Wilmington Friends, SanfordUrsuline Academy, Salesianum, Caravel Academy and more.  Test prep in Nationwide can help.

Back to Basics’ experienced tutors provide tutoring prep specifically designed around each school’s testing criteria.  We provide a thorough review of test content, test-taking strategies and test timing for the exam along with essay prompts. Students will receive several practice tests, as well.

Tests and test dates vary from school to school.   Tests given include the ISEE (Independent School Entrance Examination), Terranova, HSPT (High School Placement Test), and SSAT (Secondary School Admission Test).

The prep is offered in a 28-hour package administered over the course of 10 weeks.  Be sure to check the targeted school’s website for test date(s) and schedule your child’s prep with our office in advance, allowing for a full 10 weeks of service.

Tutoring services are provided on a 1-on-1 basis.  Cost is billed on an hourly rate and may vary depending on service and location.  Services can be held at our Wilmington or Newark Center, your home, library or other location.
