Why study for SAT/ACT and HSPT/ISEE during the summer?
Summer is supposed to be fun! Why study at all? According to New York Times, the average summer learning loss in math and reading for American students is one month per year. This learning loss is cumulative, summer after summer. It has a big impact on students’ success, including high school completion, college education and job preparedness.
Take Control of Your Abilities
Yes, YOU! You can take control of your own abilities with perfect preparation. At Hillview, we diagnose your strengths and weaknesses in order to build awareness of your abilities. Ability is defined as the *talent, skill, or proficiency in a particular area*. We show you how to take control of that specific ability just like baseball coaches help you perfect your swing.

We believe that process is the key to learning. In baseball, you are advised to practice your swings. No one can guarantee when or if you will hit a home run. There are too many factors in play to forecast a home run. The same is true of your test score. We believe that if you practice your swing—the right methods and the best content—you will do well in the tests.
