High School Entrance Exams  

Many private high schools in Delaware require students to complete a High School Entrance Exam (HSEE) for acceptance, placement and even to determine scholarship eligibility.  These schools include but are not limited to Tower Hill, Tatnall, Wilmington Friends, Sanford, Charter School of Wilmington, Ursuline Academy, Salesianum, Caravel Academy and more.   Tests and test dates vary from school to school.   Tests given include the ISEE (Independent School Entrance Examination), Terranova, HSPT (High School Placement Test), and SSAT (Secondary School Admission Test).

Back to Basics’ experienced tutors provide tutoring prep specifically designed around each school’s testing criteria.  We provide a thorough review of test content, test-taking strategies and test timing for the exam along with essay prompts. Students will receive several practice tests, as well.

The prep is offered in a 28-hour package administered over the course of 10 weeks.  Be sure to check the targeted school’s website for test date(s) and schedule your child’s prep with our office in advance, allowing for a full 10 weeks of service.
