Test Preparation Courses

Test Preparation Courses

The school contracts with test preparation companies to provide evening and Saturday classes for juniors who are interested in becoming better prepared for the PSAT, ACT, or SAT.  Letters are emailed to guardians of juniors notifying them of test prep opportunities.  Information about test prep programs also appears in the Student Bulletin and in the Parent Newsletter.  There is a tuition charge (which varies according to program) for these classes, and need-based financial aid may be available.  Please contact Mrs. Kimberly Asbury, Testing Specialist, or your student's Counselor if you have questions about test preparation.
