MISSION & PURPOSE
Delta Prep was founded by two graduates of Brooklyn Technical High School. The organization started as a small passion project in 2017 at a local Brooklyn public library with 2 tutors and has since then transitioned to an online tutoring platform that helps students from immigrant and low income backgrounds prepare for the Specialized High Schools Admissions Test (SHSAT).
Since 2017, Delta Prep has grown from the initial 2 tutors to over 15 tutors and volunteers serving in various capacities. In addition to our tutoring services, we have enlisted a network of working professionals in medicine, law, and engineering from to serve as career mentors for our students.

I first learned about the specialized high school admission test (SHSAT) when my parents invested a significant portion of their hard-earned money for me to attend preparatory school classes. As a young student at the time, I didn't fully grasp the value of attending a specialized high school or the financial burden it placed on my family. I was unaware of the sacrifices they made to provide me with those classes.
At Delta Prep, our goal is to offer high-quality tutoring services and mentorship opportunities to students in need. We aim to raise awareness and inspire the bright minds of the future, equipping them with the necessary tools and guidance for success. Additionally, we aspire to alleviate the financial strain on families and make tutoring more accessible, particularly in communities where paid tutoring services are prohibitively expensive.
Delta Prep was founded with the intention of giving back to the community and paying forward the opportunities we were fortunate to receive.
We welcome others to join us in advancing our mission.
