SAT Prep is a class offered outside of the regular school day for juniors and seniors who want extra preparation for the SAT tests. At St. Pius X our students are continually preparing for this test when they do summer reading, take four years of math, study vocabulary lists, write essays, and read good literature. In fact, the best preparation of all for the SAT is a challenging high school college prep curriculum like the one offered at St. Pius X. However, some students will benefit from some intentional tutoring and practice before taking the SAT test.
The SAT Prep course offered to St. Pius X students consists of 4 hours of class for 4 Saturdays. Each Saturday the students will work 2 hours on the Verbal sections of the test with Mrs. Jan Collier and 2 hours on the Mathematics sections of the test with Mrs. Dena Peck. Instruction is given on strategies for taking the test as well as the actual content of the tests. Students take practice tests every week and have the opportunity to discuss the questions they answered incorrectly. No make-up classes are provided, so students and parents are encouraged to check their calendars in advance of signing up for the class. Please register early to ensure your student place in the class. The cost of the course will be charged to your FACTS account.
On the registration form, please indicate if you are planning to take the current SAT (through January 2016), the new SAT (March 2016 or after) or both tests.
Shortly after completing the registration, the student (and parent) will see SAT Prep-Math and SAT Prep-Verbal on Haiku. It will be on the "extras" tab, which is next to the "classes" tab. No confirmation email will be sent.
This class is for SPX students first. However, if there is space available, we do allow students from other schools to attend. Please email Mrs. Peck (firstname.lastname@example.org) mid-August to check for availability.
**If your schedule conflicts with the dates of the Fall SAT Prep class, you may want to consider the Spring SAT Prep class, which will be held on Saturday, January 9, 23, 30 and February 6, 2016.
