Advising for Hockey Players and Athletes

SSAT Montreal works closely with students athletes. This section of our website applies specifically to young hockey players applying prep to school. Having a family advisor is truly a hand-in-hand experience; you will be guided into a prep school with a hockey team that you can be proud of. Here are two family advisors we recommend.  

Sylvain Hallé

Sylvain Hallé works with young hockey players in Québec by applying to the right schools for you, booking your visits, inquiring into financial aid, communicating directly with coaches and admissions officers, and much more. We especially recommend Monsieur Hallé to our Françophone students. 

Hockey Etcetera

The experts at Hockey Etcetera work with Montreal players by offering hockey training and/or prep school consulting. They will guide you through the application process, interviews, financial aid, and more. If needed, Hockey Etcetera will train you and attend your games. They also offer creating video footage of the applicant on ice.


Sessions are held at the Genesis Tutoring centre in Pointe-Claire, or online. See our centre here.

House-calls for certain services are offered during the off-season (March - August). Availability is limited and subject to a travel fee.

The SSAT is an admissions test for high school students. It stands for Secondary School Admissions Test. It is part of your application to prep school. The SAT is an admissions test for university students. It stands for Standard Admissions Test. It is part of your university application and is normally taken in grade 12, when you are applying to university. The PSAT is a test that prepares students for the SAT, like a "pre-SAT", or a "practice SAT". Prep schools give the PSAT to students in grade 10 and 11 to prepare them for the SAT. It stands for Preliminary Scholastic Aptitude Test. Generally, you would not hand in your PSAT to universities — its main purpose is to serve as an introduction to the SAT. There are also opportunities to win scholarships/awards early on if your PSAT scores are in the top scores of your region. Learn more about the differences between the tests here.
Yes, we do in person sessions at our office at 620 St. Jean, in Pointe Claire. We also tutor online.
Each tutor has their own availability and schedule. Many tutors can accommodate after-school hours and weekends. Please call or text 438 800 7069 for this week's availability. If you would like to drop in and visit the centre, we offer tours and meetings by appointment only (call or text 438 800 7069). If you come to the centre without an appointment, we may be occupied with other students. Check out images of the centre here.
If you are currently attending a French school, many prep schools will require that you also take an English proficiency test like the TOEFL or Duolingo. This applies to any student whose school operates in another language.  Minimum score requirements are generally 100/120. To understand how the tests are structured, how close you are to the minimum required score, or how to prepare, please contact us or learn more about Duolingo / TOEFL tutoring here.
