This is a sum of over 1.7 million dollars in academic scholarships. Most students made all three high schools on the TACHS and were accepted to at least their first choice. Many were accepted to the Honors and/or Scholars programs to schools such as Notre Dame Academy, Moore Catholic High School, and many of the schools above.

The average award of all 52 students was over $33,335 in scholarships over four years. If a student received a scholarship, his or her individual average was $66,670. The median of those students was $42,730.
26 out of the 52 students earned a scholarship over $10,000. This is half of students John Zaborskis tutored.
20 students earned at least $25,000 in combined scholarships. This is about 2 out of every 5 students.
12 students earned at least $50,000 in combined scholarships. This is slightly less than 1 out of every 4 students.

Preparation for the rigorous high school entrance exams in New York such as the Test for Admission to Catholic High Schools and High School Placement Tests has already begun. Contact me to talk about how we can get the best results from your student. Sixth and seventh grade is a great time to start, not only because of the impending high school entrance exams but also because grades in school in 7th grade matter heavily for entrance into most high schools. Most topics in Algebra, Physics, Chemistry, Math, and Calculus rely on concepts learned/mastered around 7th and 8th grade.

I like for all high school entrance students to take a practice test before the first lesson to identify areas of focus, compare to future tests, and suggest tutoring groups or individual lessons. We will have multiple TACHS, HSPT, and SHSAT practice tests before the real one. Schedule a Practice Test here:Schedule Appointment


As of March 14, 2020, all practice tests and classes are being held online until further notice.
