Prepare for the High School Placement Exam—Virtually!

October 6, 13, 20, 27
5 – 6 pm

After our success with this format last year and so much positive feedback from families, we’ve decided to offer this “flipped classroom” format again this year.

If you’re planning to take the Catholic High Schools Placement Exam and want to be as prepared as possible, sign up for this course!

Led by MSM teachers Mrs. Nicole Tomaszewski and Mrs. Catherine Suchan, this virtual program will offer you the skills you need to succeed—and the flexibility you need with your busy schedule. We’ll email you materials each week to work on, and we’ll hold a weekly Zoom call to review your work and focus on any concepts you need help with. Our Zoom sessions will also include time for you to talk with some of our current students, other teachers, and our principal so you can learn more about the Mount St. Mary experience!

Registration fee: $100

Don’t delay! Registration is FREE for the first 30 people!
