We are an authorized SSAT and ISEE testing center!

August 1st is fast approaching…a new year for SSAT Flex testing! A student is able to take one Flex test each year (August 1-July 31). A SSAT Flex test is one taken on any day other than a standard test date. We offer a comfortable, small testing environment that is a welcomed change from the large classroom testing environment. We also are an authorized ISEE test center.

Thank you Head Royce School in Oakland!

Nestled in the Oakland Hills, Head Royce School was established in 1887 and has since evolved into a full scale K-12 campus dedicated to inspiring lifelong learning. The rich history and traditions from its origins are felt within each aspect of the school… from project-based learning, to fostering social emotional development, to building community.
Thank you to our colleagues at Head Royce for hosting an outstanding visit for our Educational Counselor, Lisa Kraft.


Welcome CIP!

Today we welcomed Alex Diaz, Admissions Coordinator from the CIP (College Internship Program) Center in Berkeley, to our Buckley Education offices. We so enjoyed learning more about the program as we at Buckley Ed work with ALL students on their educational journey.
