TJ, SSAT, and HSPT Math 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 6:00 – 6:55 pm 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 fall TJ prep program. The purpose of the drills is to thoroughly review and drill math concepts to establish the base for the six-week class.

SAT vs. ACT – Which test is right for you?

Now that it’s prime time to start studying for the SAT and ACT, we’ve had a lot of students ask us which test they should take.
