In order to deliver the best and safest program for our students, we are welcoming fully vaccinated students in rising 7th grade – 12th grade into our classroom for in- person classes beginning this summer. All programs for rising Kindergarten – 6th Grade will remain online learning for Summer 2021.
Early preparation is key! By studying for admissions exams and thinking about college choices earlier, you have many more options and interventions open to you. For instance, if your verbal score is weak, you have many more semesters to improve on it as a Freshman and Sophomore, as opposed to waiting until Junior or Senior year to fix it. Unfortunately, no matter how hard you work and how hands-on our instructors are, your scores can only increase so much in a short amount of time instead of years of practice.
By preparing early, you will also improve your chances of scoring well on the PSAT/NMSQT. The PSAT can be treated like a trial run for the SAT and even the ACT, but it’s more than just that. PSAT scores are used to award scholarships to National Merit Scholars.
Fall, Spring, Summer
Each class day is broken up into subject-specific periods led by highly experienced instructors with deep knowledge and passion for their subject matter. Students are broken up into small classes based upon proficiency level to ensure that students’ individual strengths and weaknesses are addressed even in a classroom setting.
Practicing under realistic exam conditions allows students to perfect their scores leading up to their official exams. Mock exams are also a great opportunity for students to gauge how much preparation they need and when they should plan to take an official exam. Kent Prep mock exams are exams that were previously administered as official ones. Tests are also followed up with a personalized report of scores that will help students understand their strengths and weaknesses.

“With so many academies in New York, my daughter had gone to some other institutes before we came to know Kent. After my daughter got accepted into Stuyvesant High School with Kent, I have enrolled my son only to Kent. We found that it was the best place to go in the whole of Queens and Long Island. Both my children got excellent educations; they both did extremely well on the SAT.”

“Kent is all-around the best test prep school in the city. The atmosphere is a remarkable blend: high-powered and nurturing, demanding, and fun. The teachers are role models of scholarly excellence, hard work, high expectations, and kindness. Kent’s population is a diverse cross-section of the best, brightest kids in the New York area. I have taught at Kent for many years, and I continue to find the school a source of great pleasures and great rewards. You will, too.”
