Mount St. Mary Academy is offering a five-week course designed to help prepare eighth grade girls for the school’s Entrance Examination.
Running on either Tuesdays or Thursdays from 4 to 6:30 p.m. from Sept. 24 to Oct. 24, the course will familiarize students with the exam format, focus on math and ELA subject area skills, and work to identify areas that pose the greatest challenge to participants.
Students will work in small groups and individually with instructors, and each session is capped at 25 students to ensure personal attention.
Instructors will cover test-taking strategies, which may help reduce test anxiety and allow students to approach the Entrance Examination with confidence.
Parents will be provided with a custom evaluation of their daughter’s strengths and areas of need before the Entrance and Scholarship Exam, which is set for Saturday, Nov. 23.
In addition, all participants will enjoy a nutritious snack during each class session.
The cost of the Prep Class is $100 per student and includes a review book, written evaluation and all materials.
