Finally!! A Summer ACT in July

For years, students and parents complained that there were no ACT or SAT test dates for the summer.  For years, our summers were spent chillin’ at the beach.  Over the last few years, however, there has been a drastic change.  More and more students have been getting a jump start on prep during the summer between sophomore and junior year. Last year, the College Board responded to the pent up demand for summer testing dates by offering an SAT in late August  (at the same time removing the late January test date from its calendar).

Not to be outdone, the people behind the ACT are rolling out a mid-July 2018 test.  For the first time,  students who prefer the ACT can take the test on July 14.

Here is where Inspiring Test Prep comes in.  We have scheduled a three-week course to prep for that July test date.  The class meets Monday-Thursday, the weeks starting June 18, June 25, (we skip the week of July 4), and July 9.

That start date is less than two months from now and if you register and pay by midnight, Sunday, April 22, you save $200 with our early registration discount.  (This date is extended from April 18).

Delay no longer.  Take action today and click the link to sign up.  The price reflects the $200 discount.

Call Kate at 703-203-5796 to schedule the diagnostic test.

TJ, SSAT, and HSPT Math, Science, and Reading Drills


Don’t wait until the last minute to prepare; enroll in our test preparation program for 7th graders. We are offering a math drill class every Tuesday from 7:00 – 7:55 pm, a science drill from 6:00 – 6:55pm, and a reading drill from 5:00 – 5:55pm to help students get the best scores possible on the SSAT, HSPT, or TJ admissions test.

This program is a supplement to, not a replacement of, our regular 8th grade comprehensive six-week summer/fall TJ prep program. The purpose of the drills is to thoroughly review and drill math concepts, science reading strategies, and practice reading skills to establish the base for the six-week class.  



Updates on TJ Admission – 2018

I thought I would share the following information concerning the upcoming TJ SIS (Student Information Sheet).

A client asked me if I thought TJ would be having an essay or math problem this year (2018).  I suggested she call TJ and ask admissions directly.   She shared the following with me:
