College Prep Programs & Services

COLLEGE PREP WORKSHOPS [SAT/PSAT/ACT]:  

Our comprehensive Test Prep workshops are held during Spring semester (January-May) or Summer Sessions (three weeks in July or August). These workshops will increase the student's knowledge of the academic material covered on college admissions tests and develop the critical thinking, reading, and test-taking skills needed to achieve higher scores. Additionally, guest speakers from various colleges and universities may be available to offer additional insights and instruction. Homework will be assigned and required. Additionally, all students must purchase and bring to class a copy of David McCullough's John Adams. This excellent biography will provide the additional reading support we require for the students in our program.
