Students who participate in summer classes have an edge over students who wait until the fall to start their prep. Consider it this way: students who do summer prep are on “square 1” and move onto “square 2” in the fall, while students who begin in the fall are on “square 1” with regards to their test prep proficiency. Highly recommended – very small group format.

All materials are included. Please contact Ken any time with questions.

1. HSPT Math and Grammar Course: Designed to help students in grades 7-8 prepare for the Catholic High School Entrance Exam given in January. There will be 10 sessions providing tips and strategies, math practice, and grammar practice from realistic test resource books. Since 1998, students taking our course have achieved a 93% placement rate into the Catholic high school of their choice.

2. PSAT Math, Critical Reading, and Writing Skills Course: Designed for students in grades 10-11 who will be taking PSAT as a sophomore or junior at their respective high schools. There will be 10 sessions covering arithmetic, algebra, geometry, and other math topics needed for the PSAT. Also, equal time will be spent on the writing skills multiple choice questions that comprise one-third of the overall PSAT score, sentence completion questions, and short reading passage questions.

3. SAT Math, Critical Reading, and Writing Skills Course: Designed for students in grades 11-12 who will be taking the SAT this coming year. We cover topics similar to those for the PSAT, in addition to writing tips and practice for the essay now optional on the new SAT. Since 1998, students taking our course have improved their SAT scores by as much as 100-400 points.
