Test Prep Programs

Standardized tests are unlike the usual tests that students take in their academic lives. While we do live in a test heavy world, each test presents its own unique challenges and knowing how to successfully take them can be confusing. The purpose of these tests is not always to simply gauge what students know but also to sort out students on a standard bell curve. Since the stakes are high, understanding each test and its content is critical for student success. Don’t leave your scores to chance, enroll in a program with the leading prep provider in Volusia County and see your scores rise.

*Note:  All individual prep programs (Programs #1, #2 & #6) are also available a la carte at the equivalent hourly rate.
**Note:  All students who have already done a prep program with us may attend “tune up classes” in a given classroom course for half the hourly price.
***Note:  All students of Father Lopez Catholic High School have the option of attending the specially designed and priced class on their campus.  Such classes are available for other schools to offer if they are interested.
