PREPSKILLS® is the premier SSAT and SAT/ACT preparation provider in
Canada for students seeking admission to private/independent schools as well as
U.S. colleges. We work to help give students the tools needed to successfully
navigate admissions tests.
We are a Canadian company that truly understands the Canadian curriculum. All
of our SSAT/SAT/ACT prep proprietary materials are specifically designed with
this in mind. The SSAT and SAT/ACT are standardized American tests and as
such there are some distinct transitional differences in the math and language
areas that we address. For over a decade, our unique tailored approach has seen
thousands of students achieve their immediate goals and go on to thrive in their
academic careers.
Our annual public events, PrepConnect – Private School Admissions
Networking Event (held in September) and The US College Expo in Canada
(held in April), have assisted Canadian families and students in exploring options
and successfully navigating the competitive and complex process of admissions.
