Test Training Programs
Each high school has its own set of admission criteria, including the test it chooses to administer. Most parochial or catholic schools, for example, use the HSPT or SSAT. Meanwhile, the Bergen County Academies and the Academies @ Englewood require their own special tests.
MEK Admission Exam Prep caters to all students.
• Proven and efficient program for success
• Right materials for targeted test training
• Step-by-step guidance and mentoring
After identifying the test training program that meets the admissions criteria of their chosen high schools, all students must take required assessments with MEK. This process ensures proper course placement and allows our counselors to help each student develop a personalized study plan. Assessments include:
1. Scholastic Reading Inventory Test
2. Pre-Algebra (EPE) Evaluation
3. BCA Simulation Test (with timed essay section)
4. SSAT, ISEE, or HSPT Simulation Test (if applicable)
5. School Report Card Review
All students must schedule academic consultation meetings to review their school lists, go over their assessment results, and map out test training plans!
