The teachers are very helpful. They are very patient. I learned a lot at Excelsior. I lived in school for two years. The dormitory is roomy, comfortable and clean. The camp is so beautiful. School counselors guided every student step by step for college application. I got accepted by many top universities.

As you’ve been doing your boarding school research, you’ve likely seen ISEE/SSAT score submission requirements for your target schools, and understand how important scores are to the admissions process. Unfortunately, tremendous candidates can get bypassed because they were not able to demonstrate what they knew on test day.

Many people thought vouchers would never amount to much. Not only have they amounted to a great deal more than anybody could have thought, but vouchers have encouraged several more education choices to flourish.
