Register NOW: Our LAST classes to prepare for the Selective Enrollment Entrance Exam start on Saturday, November 15, 2014!

SelectivePrep offers the only classroom programs in Chicago to help students prepare for the Selective Enrollment Entrance Exam. This test is one third of the score required for admissions to a Selective Enrollment High School.

Program Overview

With the SelectivePrep Program, students prepare for the Selective Enrollment Entrance Exam in a structured classroom setting with one of our expert instructors. These classes enable students to master the math and verbal topics on the exam. Students leave the course better equipped to face the admissions process and better prepared to succeed in high school. The SelectivePrep Program starts with a diagnostic test to pinpoint strengths and weaknesses. Students will have access to supplemental material so they can practice in areas where they need the most improvement. Students also take a practice test under test conditions just before they take "the real thing". The SelectivePrep Program:

  • Is offered on weekends at convenient locations or after school at local elementary schools
  • Includes both regular 8 week (2 hours per session) or intensive 4 week (4 hours per session) programs
  • Includes a Study Guide with extensive review material
  • Includes a Diagnostic Test to pinpoint student strengths/weaknesses
