The Private Prep Scholarship Program
Our Scholarship Program
It’s simple. We believe hard-working students–no matter their financial status–deserve the opportunity to maximize their potential and achieve their educational goals.
The Private Prep Scholarship Program places high-achieving students from low-income or underserved backgrounds with individual tutors. Our expert admissions coaches work with them to navigate the test prep and college application process and ultimately gain admission to best-fit colleges.

- Up to 6 months of weekly sessions with a live online tutor (in-person, subject to availability)
- Materials for independent work assignments in between sessions
- Diagnostic tests and analysis to determine whether a student should pursue the SAT or ACT
