Since 1984, Carnegie Prep has offered academic support for students and families in Fairfield and Westchester Counties. Founded in Greenwich, CT, Carnegie Prep prepares students to meet the challenges of standardized testing, academic classes, and college admission, offering resources for students at all levels.
What We Do
Our goal is to help students reach their full potential. Our certified teachers and tutors deliver individualized instruction to help students internalize the strategies and skills needed for high-caliber academic performance and test-taking success. Offering courses and private tutoring, Carnegie Prep has the unique ability to meet the needs of diverse learners.
We pride ourselves in building strong, lasting relationships. We listen to students and parents, matching them with experienced teachers and tutors who make recommendations that guide student progress. Constant communication remains a key to our success. At every step, we invest in students and families.
We spoke last summer about engaging a private tutor to work with our son. You recommended a couple and we engaged Cormac. I want you to know that Cormac was a fantastic recommendation! We’ve just gotten back his ACT score – a 33! Cormac was diligent and very patient, especially good at coming up with different approaches when our son was having a hard time absorbing a concept.
I just want to let you know what a positive experience I have had with your tutors over the years. You, personally, have always taken the time (often 45 mins or more) to chat with me over the phone about each of my children to match me up the best tutor for each of them. My youngest has just finished up with Sam. He was tremendous!
I can’t thank you enough for the services that you provide. My daughter doesn’t need a tutor weekly for three months. Other educational services have wanted us to pay for programs where you had to sign on for a certain number of hours. I always know I can contact you and you’ll find me an amazing person that can help her for just as much or as little as is appropriate for her.
We are thrilled to have found Sam as a tutor. My daughter has always identified as primarily an athlete, but Sam showed her that she can be a successful student as well. Her scores improved as well as her confidence in her academic self!
Chris was an amazing tutor! Chris really took the time to get to know my son’s strengths and weaknesses so that he could advise us on which direction to go (ACT vs. SAT). He also offered many different strategies and tips based on my son’s needs. I will definitely be calling on Chris when my next son is ready to start this process.
Allison was terrific! Can’t say enough. Professional, smart, kind, and on time.
This past year Carnegie provided my son with the appropriate tutoring to ensure he maximized his test scores and of course he did just that. He finished with all 5’s on his AP exams. Also with random tutoring throughout the year from your amazing tutors your staff was instrumental in helping him finish his junior year VERY STRONG -with a transcript to prove it!
Thank you very much, Lynn. It was very reassuring speaking with you. Thank you for pointing us in the right direction.
Thanks for all your support. You have a great team, and we will be back with our youngest in a few years :).
Thank you for your support for my son, he definitely benefited from the focused instruction and your dedication.
