Our AABL and ECAA students are young children and family members as well as individual students. We craft a personal AABL or ECAA preparation tutoring plan sensitive to each child’s age, learning style, his/her schedule and availability and any special requests.

A Lion tutor is assigned based on his/her compatibility with each child and family. When a child knows what to expect, feels comfortable and has practiced, he or she has the confidence gained from being well prepared.

Lion Tips For AABL and ECAA Preparation

AABL(Admission Assessment for Beginning Learners) test is often required by independent schools and given to children ages 4-6. AABL assesses a child’s early literacy, verbal and quantitative skills in relation to other children of the same age nationally. Results are evaluated for admission and placement as well as diagnostics to identify which areas can benefit from extra help.

ECAA(Early Childhood Admissions Assessment) is similarly given as part of the admissions process for independent schools. It measures achievement and includes preschool through the 4th grade students.

In addition to our personalized tutoring, our exclusive Lion Academy test materials and diagnostic tools help our students optimize their AABL and ECAA performance.
