Book for Prep Course:

Lower School Guidance Counselor, Ms. Jillian Boudreau, will conduct a prep course for students preparing for the High School Placement tests that take place in November and December. This program will meet for four sessions to cover the material in the prep book.

The comprehensive course will teach students both the format of the test and provide strategies and practice for typical test questions. Students will work in small group settings that promote content mastery. Students will be taught  the most dynamic and updated strategy and methods to improve their scores. Students will build their skills each week and increase their confidence level over the span of the course. 

This program does not include the book fee. You can purchase the book through a variety of vendors prior to the program. The first session will begin meeting the first week in October.
