Why should you go to private school?
Thinking about boarding school can be as overwhelming as it is exciting for both student and parent. As a student, the chance to experience a parent-free campus life before college is liberating, while to a parent it seems terrifying to let their child away from home for so long to pursue such an ambitious achievement. The rigor of private academic programs can also be daunting–oftentimes the opportunities to excel in private schools are so intense or so multitudinous that it seems impossible to choose the right path for a child. The application process alone is long and requires interviews, essays, and entrance exams. In the end, how does a parent know that their nontraditional choice was the right one?
That’s where we come in.
Top Test Prep does more than prepare students for significant college entrance exams like the SAT and ACT. We also offer training for boarding school exams, the SSAT or the ISEE, as well as a boarding school admissions consultation service. Any given top private school will require an entrance exam, personal statement, essays, and an interview. On top of requesting recommendations, navigating the admissions process so as not to stress out the student, and building up your child’s confidence, applying to boarding school becomes a huge monster for parents to handle on their own. If you’re not familiar with the process or the nature of boarding schools, it can all become overpowering.
We are here to help you and your child. Our consultation services will first address choosing the right school, taking into consideration the academic, extracurricular, and location interests of you and your child. Once we have together chosen schools you would like to apply to, we will support and advise you every step of the way. Building custom bragging sheets to help color your child’s confidence will make you just as proud as it will make them, and by forming a close relationship with one of our boarding school admissions experts, you will soon be something of an expert yourself. Admissions counseling you receive now will pave the way for university entrance procedures, not to mention if your child begins to hone their skills at interviewing and composing personal essays now, they will feel comfortable tackling the next admissions process on their own.
Wanting your child to strive for academic excellence and achievement starts before college. When you’re making the private school choice, keep in mind that top boarding schools start preparing their students for college now. Achievement and excellence in character as much as academics and extracurricular activities are the driving force behind dedicated private institutions. Though they may seem elite from a distance, let us show you how eager they are to take on your ambitious student and empower them to rise to their full potential.
