Since early 2018, KCS has been providing test prep services in partnership with Awaken Education, an educational service company serving the wider New York/New Jersey area. The purpose of this collaboration is to provide the community with premium-quality test prep, subject classes (writing, math, etc), and college guidance at affordable rates. Scholarships are also provided to those who demonstrate financial need and demonstrate academic excellence.

Awaken Education is an educational services company serving Manhattan, Queens, Brooklyn, the Bronx, Westchester, Long Island, New Jersey, and South Korea. We offer test-prep, subject tutoring, and college/admissions consulting to students ranging from elementary to graduate level. We believe that for maximum results, education should be student-centered, individualized, and fun. Learning and prepping should be more than just rote memorization. Founded by a former public school teacher, Awaken Education brings pedagogy into the test prep and tutoring world, in which the art of student-focused teaching and thoughtful curriculum planning is often overlooked. The teachers are graduates of top colleges such as Columbia, Harvard, Yale, Oxford, Cambridge, Williams, Middlebury, and NYU. They pass on insider expertise from their exceptional academic backgrounds to their students. For more information, please feel free to check out their website:
