Featured Programs at TC


Learning doesn't have to stop when the school year comes to an end. Summer is the perfect time to reinforce existing learning skills and develop new ones.

With ThinkingCapsSummer courses, students review material from prior years, participate in enrichment programs, and get a jumpstart for the coming year. All these programs revolve around individualized learning curriculums designed for smooth transitions from grade to grade. Lessons are held on a one-on-one basis or in small groups.

ThinkingCapsSummer programs are offered in all TC locations as well as our summer satellite office in the Hamptons. learn more

Demystified Programs and the Test Changes

The recent announcement about College Board’s planned exam redesign was big news. Although we are excited to be part of the education field during such significant — and hopefully positive — times, we know that the changes to the exams will not intrinsically alter how we work and how we prepare students for standardized exams.

For over 10 years, our mission has been to guide students in acquiring the skills and confidence for lifelong learning. Our Demystified programs are rooted in methodical content review, rigorous development of critical thinking skills, and exposure to test strategy. We have never emphasized tricks or shortcuts. Instead, we have been steadfastly committed to teaching students how to be good readers, articulate communicators, and adept problem-solvers. And because tests are a necessary and unavoidable part of school — and life — we have given students all the practice and tools necessary for test day success. So, as the standardized exams and academic requirements change, we will anticipate and incorporate appropriate adjustments. We will, as always, be up-to-date. Our Demystified programs will evolve to meet changes while staying true to our tradition of excellence.
