Why Prep for the SHSAT with Kaplan?

Our founder, Stanley H. Kaplan, invented the test prep industry in Brooklyn over 75 years ago. While today Kaplan is a global educational provider, our roots will always be right here in New York.

Kaplan's comprehensive courses are research-based and specifically designed to help students score higher on the SHSAT.

  • We focus on reviewing the content on the exam, teaching your child critical thinking strategies so they can move efficiently through the test. It’s not enough to feel prepared. Your child should feel confident on Test Day.
  • We emphasize maximizing your child’s available study time with the right strategies and methods - not laboring on rote memorization and drill techniques. Your child should prep smarter, not harder.

Most importantly, we understand a high SHSAT score can change the trajectory of your child’s education. To this end, we are dedicated to helping your child achieve his or her goals — we succeed when your child succeeds.
