My husband and I tried helping Kait get ready for the Hunter High School test, and we were shocked at how hard it was. We needed a pro to help out, even though Kait is a bright girl. But with help from her tutor she was able to tackle the test like a pro, herself. Her tutor always knew when to challenge her and when to make her feel comfortably confident. Even after Kait took the test (and got into Hunter!), we continued to have her work with her HT tutor, just with general school help. Really incredibly helpful!
6th grade, Hunter Test
Our tutors are prepared to shape our Hunter test program to fit every individual student’s learning and personality type. Our programs are malleable, and our experience has equipped us to lead every student towards achieving his/her personal best on test day.
We approach test prep from a child-centric perspective, and are sure to cater to the needs of the human we’re working with, not only the student. We don’t try to make a child’s life fit into a test prep program; we make sure that test prep fits comfortably into a child’s life.
Our esteemed executive functioning program is interwoven into our test prep, ensuring that students will gain lifelong skills on their way to achieving their optimal Hunter test score. We’ll help you change schools, and we might just change your life along the way.
We Help You Decide
Is the Hunter HS for me?
The first step along the Hunter Test path is confirming that the student has been deemed qualified by HCHS prior to sitting for the test. HCHS asks school principals to identify 6th graders who have 5th grade Common Core scores that meet the criteria to sit for the exam. Students from independent schools must score in the 90th percentile or above on Reading Comprehension and Math on the exams used at their schools.
When to start prep?
Ideally, students have 3-6 months of consistent test prep leading up to the Hunter Test. Students are only allowed to take the exam once, and it is customarily held on the second Saturday of January. We are very careful to pace our prep programs properly, ensuring that students neither burn out or peak too early.
How to sequence the prep?
The first goal is to get students comfortable with the features, expectations and format of each section of the Hunter Test. We then move onto strategies, both in the realm of general test-taking as well as how to tackle particular question types. Lastly, we turn to content, and create personalized curricula for students to master. All of these elements come together during our group test simulations, which allow students to continuously refine their abilities in real time.
