Kent Prep takes test preparation very seriously. In addition to our practice tests, we offer professional counseling services for both students and parents. We believe what happens outside the classroom is just as crucial as what happens in the classrooms. Kent Prep’s counselors help encourage parental involvement and help customize personal academic career path to each individual.
College Application (12th Grade)
Preparing for the SAT is an excellent way to get into good position for college. However, the college admissions process involves a lot more than just scores. Our college application counseling services guide students through each step of the application process including filling out application forms (the Common Application and separate college-supplement applications), brainstorming and proofreading personal essays with short response questions and also providing interview protocol (upon request).
College Financial Aid
For many students, applying for financial aid is almost just as important as applying for admission. We provide professional financial aid counselors that cater to the students’ circumstances to help parents determine the best financial option for their child with their tuition. This service also helps students and parents fill out the FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) from start to finish. Our counselors will help to optimize financial gain from loans (private and federal), grants (Pell and TAP), and work-study options.
College Admission Preparation (Grades 9 -11)
What colleges do I qualify for?
