From the Desk of Daniel Kennedy

Dear Kennedy Parents and Students,

As the pandemic swept through our community, we at Kennedy Test Prep were pleased to provide complete access to our world-beating SAT and SHSAT Programs; not only did we go online as well as in-person, we kept our prices stable even as our competitors did not.

As the pandemic begins to wane, however, we feel it’s time to charge what we’re worth again. Not only do we have the highest Overall Average SAT Score Increase and SHSAT Success rate of ANY of our competitors, and not only do we have the most experienced lead instructor of 23 years, not only do we teach the one class your child actually loves attending, we also offer the industry’s best Money Back Guarantees, and in our 11 years teaching SAT Prep we’ve never had to fulfill it. We make learning fun and rewarding so that all of our students reach their highest potential — not just high performers.

That said, the internal dilemma we now face is that many families still need those low prices. What’s more, the Test Prep Industry often recieves a bad rap for catering to a certain demographic — a criticism that I believe our industry has earned.

So what’s the solution?

Kennedy Test Prep is not a corporation; it’s a small family business that we must sustain in order to serve you; however, we will also promote our Full Financial Aid Package to all families that need it. We only received a handful of applications this past year, but most of these received a full tuition grant! Again, we are the only local test prep to offer this service, and we want to support any and all families that qualify. Simply send your most recent 1040 and pay stubs to .

Our tuitions are changing, but feel free to peruse our competitors’ websites; you’ll find that their prices are similar to ours — even though their services don’t compare. When it comes to Test Prep, there’s McDonald’s and then there’s Le Bernardin; there’s what’s popular and then there’s Kennedy. As Martha Kennedy our Director (and my wife) always says, the reality is that we have no competitors because no one else offers what we do.

And we will continue to offer that excellence to everyone.

Kennedy March SAT flushing Class improves an average of 182 points

The results are in: our Flushing March SAT Class DOMINATED!

The students’ (pictured) average improvement, from previous Real SAT Score to March SAT Score, was 182 points!

Standouts include Ruiming Chen (+250) and Mahira Rahman (+310)!

We challenge you to find an SAT program with a higher overall average improvement. Heck, we challenge everyone to find another SAT program than even publicizes overall average performance. Spoiler alert: there aren’t any.

Large, dragging lectures might work for highly motivated students. For students seeking fun and engagement, there’s us.

Congratulations to the March SAT Class!

Dear Kennedy Parents and Students,

The Health and Safety of our Kennedy Test Prep Family is our Top Priority. We are closely monitoring new developments regarding the Coronavirus (COVID-19) and implementing all reasonable measures.

On that note, College Board has cancelled both the May SAT and the March SAT make-up date.

Also, in accordance with the recommendations of Nassau County and Queens County, The QCAC and GCCC buildings we lease have both closed.

That said, the good news is that we will continue our classes via Zoom Live-Online Meetings. These virtual classes will meet during your regular times, and we are taking it upon ourselves to get your materials to you beforehand. As soon as our classes can physically meet again, we will let you know.

Regarding tutoring sessions, please contact us regarding logistics and to set up new sessions.

Please let us know what questions you might have, and thank you for your patience at this time.


Daniel Kennedy,

Founder & Lead Instructor
