With over 30 combined years of assessment preparation experience, Ken Mercer and Mike Testa help students maximize their test score. Ken and Mike seek to build an environment where the student feels empowered – this is the key in helping students achieve their ultimate score goal.

the college decision. This includes curriculum/activity advisement,
SAT/ACT/Subject Area Test Prep, assistance with application essays
and personal statements, and consultation regarding financial aid

Who We Are
Why are we called SISYFLY? (Sis-a-Fly)
Inspire and Empower. Destroy any barrier. Sisyphus, the Ancient Greek mythological figure, is our inspiration. Sisyphus was a Greek King who utilized his determination, cunning and wit in order to outthink “the gods.” Ultimately, he was captured and sentenced to an eternity of pushing a boulder up a mountain. The “Gods” punished him for possessing an undying spirit and brilliant mind.
In our logo, the person represents YOU. The boulder represents any and all obstacles. We refuse our 'pre-determined' fate of going back down the mountain. Our persistence leads to cracks in that boulder. We wish to help our family (YOU!) break through and SISYFLY.
