💯 The HSPT score is a vital part of the application. Students aren't expected to get a perfect score, but they must do their best on it, especially for competitive schools and programs or for scholarships.

Live HSPT Prep in a Small Group with an expert instructor

Don't take the HSPT cold. (Please! Even if you don't take our course, at least take a practice HSPT.)

The HSPT has 298 questions that the test-taker must answer in 141 minutes. That's 2.1 questions per minute, or 29 seconds per question. And some of the questions are... Well, just a little unusual, as in they're not really taught in school, and you don't want your child feeling flummoxed on test day.

We will walk your child through the test, and help them when they feel stuck. Your child can ask questions freely in class, and get in touch when you want. (This goes for the parent, too.)

Since 1998, we've helped students do better in school, and we know the challenges today's students face. (It's not as easy as it once was!) We're your partner in this, and we'll treat your kids like our own.


  • HSPT test dates for the San Francisco Bay Area. If you're applying to other high schools, please check their dates. Note: You will need to register for the HSPT through the school you're applying to; we cannot do that for you.
  • This is a group course conducted via video. If you'd prefer to work one-to-one with a tutor, you may wish to consider one-to-one tutoring (also currently available only via video).
