"Our daughter took all of the SelectivePrep courses in preparation for 7th grade ISATs last year and the high school entrance exam. She did exceptionally well (898 points) and got accepted into her Selective Enrollment School of choice which was Whitney Young. We want to thank you and your staff for doing such a phenomenal job in preparing her for these challenges."

"I did want to let you know that our daughter was accepted at her first choice, Whitney Young. She had a total of 900 points and was happy to know she did so well on the entrance exam. Thank you for the role SelectivePrep plays in providing a class to review material and prepare the students for the exam. Your responsiveness and communication throughout the process are a big help to parent navigating CPS."

"A few weeks ago our daughter was accepted to St. Ignatius for the Class of 2017. We are very excited and proud of her accomplishments."

"Our daughter wants to let you know that she got into Walter Payton and is so happy! Her entrance exam scores were all 99s across the board, which put her at 898 out of 900 points. We all greatly appreciate the hand you played in helping her prepare and making it such an enjoyable experience for her too!"

"I wanted to report back on our son's results for the Selective Enrollment Exam. He scores a core total of 98 for 297 points. He got into his first choice, Lane Tech, but he also could have gotten accepted to Jones, Payton, and Whitney. Thanks so much for your help. I've been encouraging others to do this course for 7th and 8th grade."

"Our daughter scored 291 on the Selective Enrollment Entrance Exam and received an offer of admission to Whitney Young with a composite score of 889. We are thrilled with this outcome. I am certain that the prep classes were time and money well spent. For example, the test included questions that are only now being taught in 8th grade. Thank goodness they were included in your curriculum! Thanks for always being available during this stressful period and for being flexible and understanding with scheduling & make-up classes. It was a great relief knowing that my daughter and I could count on your support and optimism right up until test day."

"I wanted to let you know about my daughter's Selective Enrollment results. She received an offer from Jones which was her first choice of Selective Enrollment schools. We are very proud of our daughter and would highly recommend SelectivePrep classes."

"Our son's total score was 897. I think there will always be a debate on how much these prep classes can really help your child. In our view, it helped him focus and get comfortable with the type of questions being asked. I will tell you that he had a very positive opinion on how you handled the class and I was very, very impressed with the program's proactive communications and your willingness to provide specific feedback for our son. He will be going to Payton next year."

"Hi. It's one of your favorite students. I just wanted to thank you for all of the help you provided me and letting me stay for extra sessions before the big test. I got my results yesterday, and I got into Walter Payton!!! I can't explain how much your class and the way you taught me and prepared me for my Terra Novas and Entrance Exam. I also think that it helped me prepare for the Catholic School Test. I was accepted by St. Ignatius as well. Thanks for all of your help. If you wanted to know some scores, I got a PERFECT score on the entrance exam. I felt so comfortable going into the test and I felt like I was ready for any question type. I am recommending this class to so many people so I'm sure that you'll have some of my friends. Thank you for all of your help!!! Much appreciated!!"

"I wanted to let you know that our daughter was admitted to every school to which she applied, including Payton, Lincoln Park IB and St. Ignatius. We are so proud of her. With the dust now settling it looks like she is now bound for Payton and will accept this week. Thank you for all of your efforts. Your efforts and your caring preparation helped take that edge off and calm our daughter down to allow her to perform at the level at which she was capable."

"I wanted to thank you for working with our son. He was offered a spot a Walter Payton! He is ecstatic. We would definitely recommend preparing for testing with you again."

"Just a quick note to say THANKS for the SelectivePrep course. Our daughter was accepted into Jones, her first choice with a score of 879. Keep up the good work! Since our Tier 4 children are unfortunately expected to score practically perfectly in order to gain entrance to Chicago's most rigorous Selective Enrollment High Schools, we are fortunate to have your company's prep services as an added "insurance marker" towards a high scoring entrance exam."

"WHITNEY YOUNG! Our daughter scored 294 out of 300 on the entrance exam for a total composite score of 891, and was accepted into Whitney Young."

"My daughter received an offer from Jones but we are considering applying to Payton through principal discretion."

"We wanted to update you on our daughter's progress with the Selective Enrollment process. Last week, she receives her results, 885 and we are in Tier 4. She was accepted at her first pick, Whitney Young and is extremely happy."

"Our son got a perfect score on the Selective Enrollment Exam and is going to Jones, his first choice. Thanks for your help! I think the classes were a big help for him – not because he didn't know the material, but because he was ready for the structure of the test. The course was definitely worth it."

"Our daughter was accepted at Whitney Young for this fall. We are three for three with our children taking your class and getting into Whitney Young. We still have a 7th grader who will be up next year for your class and the Selective Enrollment program."

"Our daughter has a seat at Northside Prep. Thank you."

"I just wanted to take a minute to say thanks to you and your Instructor for getting our son properly prepared for the Selective Enrollment Exam.

Please accept my thanks and make sure to let your Instructor know as well. It has been a pleasure and I wish you all the best going forward."

"Our son took your SelectivePrep course before applying to the Selective Enrollment High Schools. I just wanted to say thanks, we are all thrilled and to be honest somewhat pleasantly surprised that he was admitted to his first choice, Walter Payton with a perfect score of 300 on the admissions exam. He had always tested pretty well, but the top percentile on all subjects is a first, so we feel that the prep course and study materials were a factor in this great result."

"I would like to inform you that our daughter got accepted to Gwendolyn Brooks. She has always wanted to go there and now she got accepted thanks to your guidance. Thank you for helping her."

"Our daughter will be going to Jones. Jones was her first choice and we know that the Selective Enrollment prep helped her prepare for the test. She worked hard in the class, did the homework, complied lists of questions and received good instruction from her Instructor. Our daughter felt that she learned things during the prep class that she had not been exposed to in school, so really it was valuable beyond the testing. Thanks for your help. We are all excited for her and we plan to use your services for her younger sister when the time comes."

"We are happy to let you know that our son was accepted at Northside Prep. Thank you for all of your help."

Our daughter just got her letter on Saturday that she got her first choice, Jones. She came in at a total of 889 points! And then two years ago my son who did SelectivePrep successfully got into his first choice, Lane. I want to inform you of the good outcome and forward my thanks. I'll continue to recommend SelectivePrep to other parents."

"Our son got into Lane and we are thrilled!! Our son said these classes helped him especially in math and reading. Thank you!!"

"I wanted to let you know that our son scored a 99 on the Selective Enrollment Exam. He ended up with a perfect score of 900, so is attending the Selective Enrollment School of his choice. He felt the Selective Enrollment prep class and the 7th grade test prep classes were very helpful."

My son received admittance into his first choice school, Jones, with a point total of 857 and with a score of 288 on the exam."

"I wanted to let you know that our son has been admitted to Walter Payton for the incoming freshman class! He is thrilled and worked very hard to achieve significant improvement from the original assessment test given on week one. We credit your SelectivePrep program, his wonderful Instructor and a great deal of hard work by our son for the results. His Selective Enrollment test result was a 300 out of a possible 300. Thank you for all your assistance and guidance. Your detailed program, combined with a student's willingness to dedicate the time necessary for preparation are a great combination."

Thanks for your work with her, and keeping everyone informed at all the different steps in this crazy process."

The SelectivePrep program really did help, because even though our daughter is a good student, the course but her mind at ease about the test."

"My son got a 98 on the test and received an offer to attend Lane. He also took the Catholic test at St. Patrick and got a 96 on that test and a $3,000 scholarship from St. Patrick.

We are going to St. Patrick since we feel that it is a better fit."

"I wanted to let you know that our son was accepted to his first choice Payton. His total score was 898. He'll be joining his sister, now in her sophomore year at Payton.

This was truly a great investment."

“I noticed a BIG difference in how he came out of the test from last year. He said this year he finished the entire test with two minutes to spare. He was not rushing – he was able to take his time. Last year, he left at least 10 questions blank because he ran out of time. This year he said when there were 15 minutes left he was where he had to stop last year. He said he felt very good about the test and knew he got lots of answers correct. According to him, there were only two questions where he took his best guess. We both accredit this to the test prep course he attended. I want to thank you for helping my son.”
