My child thoroughly enjoyed her 11+ journey at Progress Academy. She cried her eyes out when she had to miss class on sick days. Who knew 11+ could be so much fun! Thanks to the wonderful teachers for inducing a thirst for knowledge and competence. What more, a place secured in the school of our choice! I knew nothing about 11+ but Progress Academy provided me ample guidance to support my child. Totally recommend it! - Kamesh Vellore
