This is a nine-week course that provides students with the opportunity to take class once a week and then prepare independently between classes through homework that includes lots of practice problems. The course meets for one hour per week for nine weeks. Below are the key components that make HSPT Prep effective and desirable for families and students:

The initial class focuses on an overview of the course, establishes class expectations, provides an introduction to the HSPT, and reviews key test taking strategies that apply across all five sections of the assessment. After the overview in Week 1, the course is split into two, 4-week segments. One segment focuses on Reading, Language, and Verbal Skills and the other focuses on Math and Quantitative Skills. Students will have an experienced English teacher for the ELA segments and a high-quality Math instructor for the weeks dedicated to Math and Quantitative Skills.
