We teach students the tools and strategies they need to be successful, independent learners and self-advocates.

The transition from middle to high school can be challenging. High school academics are more rigorous, putting additional strain on students. Our Nailing Ninth course prepares your student for a successful move to high school.

The Course Includes . . .

  • Intensive two-day weekend workshop
  • Mid-semester check-in workshop
  • BONUS: Post-workshop parent seminar
  • BONUS: Final-exam prep session
That’s a total of 11 hours of student instruction and coaching!

Please inquire for a special test prep date if your student is on a trimester.
Snacks will be provided, but we ask for your student to pack a lunch.

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING…

“Nailing Ninth made all the difference for my son’s move to high school. The transition was much more relaxed than he expected. I’ve felt confident allowing him to manage his schoolwork as a result and he’s done great!” (Julie, parent)

“[Our daughter] worked very hard and has learned a lot about how she learns and how she needs to study in order for her test scores to more accurately reflect what she knows. Thank you and SOS for your part in the heavy lifting that helped to bring us here.” (Amy Shutkin)
