We believe in the best quality, especially when it comes to the education of our children. KEY has worked with both of our children. Our son took KEY’s etiquette course and after that we noticed a remarkable change in the way he interacts with others, especially adults. Our friends and relatives have even commented on his increased confidence. KEY helped our daughter gain admissions to one of the most competitive private schools by advising us every step of the process. KEY’s levels of dedication, service, and quality are unmatched. We have no doubt that KEY will be the go-to place for families wanting the best admissions advice and enrichment programs.

Thanks for all of your hard work and outstanding contributions for my son’s achievement. In his private school interview, I saw a different side of my son; a confident, positive, and polite young man. After the principal of Richmond Christian School interviewed my son, he made offered admission on the spot and welcomed my son to the school community. It was great news for both my son and me. I believe Richmond Christian School will be a great challenge for my son and I’d love to ask KEY’s assistance to continue helping him achieve a higher level of educational goals and realizing his value in life.

The SSAT registration portal opened Aug. 1, and while it may seem months away until the very first SSAT exam, there is in fact not much time for your child to prepare.
