About Bright Kids

Bright Kids was established in 2009 with a passionate vision by a mother who experienced firsthand the importance of educational support for her three children. Since then, Bright Kids has flourished into a leading full-service tutoring and publications company, renowned for its expertise in test preparation and subject tutoring. With an unwavering commitment to excellence, we prioritize delivering a high-quality service that seamlessly integrates advanced technology, ensuring an unforgettable and enriching learning experience for every student we serve.

Our Mission:

To get your children prepared for any school admissions or assessment test (regardless of age or ability) by creating a seamless scientifically-driven approach that generates reliable results!

Our History

Over the last 14 years, we have welcomed 10,000+ families & over 4,000 children to Bright Kids!

Over 90% of our tutored children scored 90% or higher on the Gifted and Talented test compared to 10% of all testers in the general population. Of those, over 50% have qualified for citywide programs. 

Year after year, over 80% of our children scored to get to the 2nd Round of HCES.  Five to ten children are admitted each year to HCES, which has a total class of 50 kids.

Over 80% of our students scored a 7 or above stanone across all subjects on the ISEE or SSAT; those who worked with us saw at least a 2 stanine increase in score over just a few months.

Our kids have the opportunity to practice tablet-based questions for the AABL; most of our kids score in the top percentile of all the sections.

Our educators, writers, and consultants have published over 100 titles and sold over 10 million books to families who wanted to supplement their tutoring.

We have sponsored hundreds of kids through scholarships programs or community outreach programs like the Harlem Children's Zone.
