We are at the forefront of test preparation in Brooklyn. 

 

Our Mission

CAS Prep creates and delivers programs that support and strengthen the academic experience and educational attainment of 1st to 8th grade students.  CAS Prep’s Test Prep Program focuses on preparing 6th and 7th grade students for the Specialized High School Admission Test (SHSAT) and our Enrichment Program focuses on elevating the educational performance of 1st through 5th graders. Our programs teach students fundamental reading and mathematical skills; provides opportunities for them to develop problem solving and presentation skills and cultivates test-taking expertise. We believe this combination equips children with the tools to excel academically and ultimately leads to life-long success.

We provide one on one tutoring, group learning sessions as well as specialized high school admissions test (SHSAT) prep services. In our Enrichment Program, a heavy emphasis is put on study of topics that are germane to the community and the world around us. Students are encouraged and expected to produce writings, essays, literature and other forms of expression to enhance and demonstrate their learning. CAS Prep is also unique in that it is the only full duration SHSAT Prep program that exists within the Bedford-Stuyvesant community.

It is my belief that it is our collective responsibility to ensure that our children are provided with educational opportunities in order for them to grow and reach their full potential. Parents, politicians, community leaders, schools and support organizations such as CAS Prep must all be willing, active and enthusiastic members of this matrix.
