“I wanted to let you know that my daughter did great on the SSAT and HSPT. She already had strong grades but the test prep you did with her boosted her test-taking confidence and skills. She ended up getting offers of admissions from College Prep, Lick Wilmerding, Marin Academy, and Bishop O’Dowd (O’Dowd even offered a scholarship based on her test scores and grades). She’ll be going to Lick next year. Thanks again for the great test prep!”
