What Our Students/Parents Say
Spencer’s SAT scores really improved – to the extent that had he gone to one of the state schools, he didn’t have to take the entrance/placement exams. Thank you for your fine program! I’m sure we will be using you again with our daughter!
Thank you so much for your help! I got my scores back; I got 690 in Critical Reading, 740 in Math, and 800 in Writing…a 2230! I really appreciate everything you have done. Thanks again!
I always know that I can count on Lafayette Academy when my sons need help! It has been great and I thank you. You provide a wonderful service to the students. Matt is our youngest so we won’t be coming anymore but I will definitely refer Lafayette Academy!!
Kevin really enjoyed Gordon who tutored him in Physics this year. Excellent tutor! With regard to his SAT prep, Kevin was well prepared for the test and liked that the course started in the summer prior to his junior year. Overall Kevin’s experience with Lafayette has been very fruitful and worthwhile.
