ISEE

Please note that today’s White House order canceling standardized tests refers to benchmark testing, also known as “state” or “school” testing, that state public school systems administer each year to track performance.

Ongoing administration for standardized admissions and achievement tests such as the ACT, SAT, SAT Subject Tests, GMAT, GRE, MCAT, etc., continues to be determined independently by the relevant testing agencies. 

Please see the above information about Official Test Site Closings. As of March 20, most June tests have not yet been canceled.

In order to help ensure the wellbeing of all our students, their families, and every member of our group, all Advantage Testing tutoring and classroom instruction will take place remotely until further notice. We will continue to provide rigorous and effective one-on-one tutoring, semi-private tutoring, and classroom instruction online. 

Furthermore, until further notice, we will no longer be offering on-site practice testing. Students may contact their tutors or our administrative offices for information regarding in-home test administration, either proctored remotely or self-proctored.  

Please be assured that Advantage Testing will continue to provide full administrative support and services remotely. Should you need anything, just call the main office number and you will be connected with an administrator.
