We provide practice tests, given to all Freshman and Sophomores, and as the students enter Junior year, Mrs. Gallo will be in the classroom getting students ready for the PSAT, SAT and ACT. The test prep available to Juniors and Seniors includes an 8 hour SAT and / or ACT course in August, numerous 5 hour courses leading up to the SAT and ACT tests given throughout Junior and Senior year, many 2.5 hour Turbos (given at strategic times) and individual tutoring during study hall or after school.
