ISEE - Upper Level Courses
"The Upper Level ISEE is the private school admissions test taken by students applying to grades 9-12. If you're unfamiliar with the ISEE, please see my publications here including info about strategies, content, and scoring."
Stephen Hayes, General Academic Vice President
The Upper Level ISEE is no joke, but our courses will help students eliminate the stress and uncertainty brought on by the ISEE and private school admissions. Our instructors, using our own ISEE prep book, will guide students through the ISEE and its tested concepts while teaching and practicing testing strategies throughout the course. We will also shed light on the admissions process, look at what each school has to offer, and discuss what each student brings to the table on their applications and interviews.

More About our ISEE Classes
We have helped hundreds of 8th graders prepare for the ISEE since our first group ISEE class in 2011. We start with our own 932-page book on the ISEE, add one of our brilliant instructors, and teach through a hands-on, interactive approach.
Students receive a copy of General Academic's own 932-page "Upper Level ISEE Prep Guide with 6 Full-Length Practice Tests."
During each course, students will work through 1 complete practice test and additional practice sections (depending on performance) all while learning strategies and reviewing tested concepts.
A typical class is composed of two instructor-led parts:
We keep our classes small to ensure that your student receives personalized attention.
All classes are limited to 8 students or fewer.
