What sets us apart from other test prep companies?
29+ Years of Experience
KD College Prep is not just another corporate test prep company. Since 1992, we have served more than 72,000 students across the country. We care deeply about our community and the families we serve.
Our founder, Karen Dillard, has always had a passion for making a difference in the lives of her students. As an honors graduate of Southern Methodist University’s School of Education, Karen began her career as a professional educator at a Texas school district. She entered the test prep industry with a national test prep company and quickly rose to the position of Regional Director, establishing and managing centers in a three-state region.
Karen entered the entrepreneurial world in 1992, founding Karen Dillard’s College Prep. Her sole focus was to help students’ college dreams become a reality. She set out to build a program that did much more than run kids through a quick set of test prep classes. Instead, she built an educationally solid, holistic program, positioning students to realize their college admissions, honors program, and merit-based scholarship goals.
David Dillard shares his wife’s passion for supporting students in pursuing their academic goals. David has always been an advocate for education, and he often speaks about current events on local TV and radio stations. Together, Karen and David have demonstrated a commitment to their community by supporting local charities, their church, and numerous high school programs.

Online Test Prep Courses
We offer a variety of prep options and flexible schedules to best fit your student’s needs. Students who enroll in our programs have the option to choose to prep online using live or on-demand activities, or create a schedule consisting of a combination of online and in-person activities (if located close to one of our campuses in Dallas-Fort Worth).

Our private, one-on-one tutoring option is ideal for students who prefer to prepare for tests by working one-on-one with an instructor. This tutoring solution allows students to focus on specific problem areas versus the entire test prep package. Students can use this option to cover a wide range of topics and can choose to prep in person or virtually. Meeting times can be tailored to fit your schedule. Your student can utilize private tutoring as a stand-alone service or in addition to our test prep programs.
Our college counselors provide guidance to students and parents throughout the entire college admissions process. We offer a variety of programs that cover areas such as the college search, application assistance, essay tutoring, and more. Our college counselors have a proven track record and decades of experience helping students get accepted into the nation’s most competitive colleges.
