SHSAT STRATEGIES For Specialized High School Admissions

Discovery Academy has developed some of the most inventive strategies in the test preparation industry to help students achieve a high degree of success on standardized tests. In the SHSAT test preparation class, students are taught strategies to tackle difficult verbal and math questions including Scrambled Paragraphs, Logical Reasoning, Reading, Mathematical Word Problems, Computational Questions, and other mathematical problems in arithmetic, algebra, probability, statistics and geometry.
They are taught why it is always better to guess than to omit, when and how to use approximation to solve math problems, how to determine the general nature of a word based on various factors and which reading answers are most likely to be correct. This and so much more will be at your child’s fingertips when taking the SHSAT.

Discovery’s skill-building materials are effective in helping students learn and strengthen basic math, reading and reasoning skills. And while the immediate goal is to raise test scores, the peripheral benefits to students who go through our SHSAT program are many. They will review all relevant math formulas and concepts and will learn effective reading techniques.
