"Dear Silver Creek Academy,
This is in reference to the High School admissions results that came out this weekend. I wanted to share the good news that I got into my top two choices of schools- Archbishop Mitty and Notre Dame High School.
I want to thank you for all your help in preparing me for the HSPT test and for the high school essays. I did really well on the test and my scores were all on the high ranges across. Once again thank you so much for all your efforts. This would not have ever been possible without your help."-Nikita
"Dear Silver Creek Academy,
I wanted to thank you all for your help with writing all of my college essays- I wouldn’t have been able to make it through application season without you :) I decided to SIR to UCSB this morning and I just wanted to let you guys know! Thanks once again for all the love and support I received from my Silver Creek Academy family." -Simi
"Dear Silver Creek Academy,
I wanted to thank SCA for all the HSPT Prep courses available that I was able to benefit from in the last several months. I applied to three high schools, VCHS, Mitty and Notre Dame, and I was accepted to all three. Two of the three schools have commented on how high my test scores are and I have been given the opportunity to enroll in Honors classes my Freshmen year. I began my HSPT journey last summer, taking the 8-week HSPT Summer course. During the school year, I took a few HSPT Practice Exams, the Essay Writing Workshop, and just before my HSPT test day, the 3-hour, one day, Intensive Review class. I firmly believe that SCA exposed me to the test material and test-taking tips that helped me to succeed on test day and the writing revisions for my six application essays. Thank you Ms. Jenna, Annette and Reem!!" -Marilyn Damey
