YULA Girls Testing Programs


Welcome Class of 2019 and 2020!

Compass Education Group is a leading provider of tutoring for college admission tests. YULA has partnered with Compass to offer a number of helpful resources to families.

On Thursday, December 28th, parents and students are asked to attend an on-campus presentation by Managing Director, Sara Dalhed, to learn more about the landscape of college admission testing, build personalized testing timelines, and understand how test preparation works.

In 2018, students are invited to participate in a test prep course targeting the May 2018 SAT test date.

Compass has been an invaluable resource for us for over a decade. Their approach to testing is smart and reasonable. The programs they provide for our families are of the highest quality.

Compass is in a class of its own. They help us keep student health and wellness at the center of our program. I am flooded with overtures from test prep companies, but I always come back to the team at Compass.

    Private Tutoring


    Efficient and successful test prep relies on accurate diagnoses. Our practice tests provide a detailed portrait of your testing strengths and weaknesses, allowing us to make recommendations and adjustments tailored to your personal needs.
    After a thorough assessment of testing data, background, needs, and goals, we develop an individualized plan. Because we do not offer “packages” of lessons, we have the flexibility to craft personalized programs of study that take these nuances into account.
    We hold all our instructors to the same high standards, but that doesn’t mean they’re all the same. Your schedule, your learning style, even your outside interests – we consider all these factors in selecting the best instructor for you.
    Once lessons begin, our instructors and directors work together to monitor your progress and make adjustments until you achieve your score goals. We are never on auto-pilot, and our continued oversight drives the success of our programs.
