The Independent School Alliance & Study Hut

This past weekend, Study Hut was honored to have hosted an ISEE test prep weekend workshop at Westerly School in Long Beach.  The workshop was a two-day seminar with four class sections running concurrently catering to students ranging from 5th grade all the way up to 8th grade.  The workshop catered to students from the Independent School Alliance, and represented the beginning of a new partnership between Study Hut Tutoring and the Alliance.

The Independent School Alliance

The Independent School Alliance is a leading organization in private school admissions counseling and placement. It was founded by its member schools for the purpose of placing underrepresented students at the elementary and secondary levels. Since 1985, it has provided access and opportunities to thousands of students across Southern California. Its students become exemplary members of their independent school communities, and very often its member schools comment that their campuses are better places because of the presence of Alliance students.

The mission of the Independent School Alliance is to inform members of racial communities presently underrepresented in independent schools of the option of independent school education; to identify applicants from these communities and assist them in the application process; to provide ongoing support programs for students and their families’ and to act as a resource to member schools assisting them in their individual efforts to address issues of racial diversity and multicultural education.

The seminar included one ISEE Lower Level classroom, one ISEE Middle Level classroom, and two ISEE Upper Level classrooms running both Saturday and Sunday.  Students learned a wide variety of concepts and strategies, from process-of-elimination tips for the Quantitative Reasoning and Mathematics Achievement sections, to time management strategies and active reading note-taking techniques for the Verbal Reasoning and Reading Comprehension.  By all accounts, it was a massive success, and also a very rewarding experience for the Study Hut team.
