Middle School Counseling

The transition between middle school and high school is an important milestone in a child’s life. At this time, parents have many questions about choosing the best high school for their children, selecting freshman year classes, what to expect throughout the next four years, and how to best prepare their children for the transition. During your middle school counseling session, we explore all of the unique decisions that your family may face.

At Insight, we believe that choosing a high school is one of the most important decisions a family will make during this important transition. Applying our extensive knowledge and experience, having worked with thousands of students, we work with families to identify the best high school choice for them, taking into account those factors that are most critical to you as a family. We also offer private test prep services to students taking private school admissions exams including: SSAT, ISEE, HSPT.

Private High School Admissions Test Prep

Different private high schools expect different standardized tests when it comes to their admissions requirements. At Insight we customize your individual (one-on-one) test prep program based on the private high schools you’re applying to and your formal test dates.  For example, The Harker School and The Nueva School require the ISEE or the SSAT while Bellarmine and Archbishop Mitty require the HSPT. At Insight our tutors are well versed in all three common private high school admissions tests: SSAT, ISEE, HSPT.
