TEST PREP FOUNDATIONS

For high school & middle school students to prepare for: 

  • PreACT & ACT
  • PSAT 8/9, PSAT 10, PSAT/NMSQT, & SAT

My daughter felt very calm and confident during her high school placement test. She was able to manage her time and actually had time left over on some of the parts of the test and most importantly, she felt good after the test.

— Cecilia R., Mom of 8th Grader

Test Prep Foundations Small Group Classes are designed with three groups of students in mind:

  • high school students who may need some extra review, support, or time with foundational content as a precursor to their ACT or SAT preparation
  • middle school students who want to prepare for high school placement exams that use PSAT 8/9 or PreACT tests
  • high school or middle school students who want to gain strong foundational skills and content for standardized tests in high school

Precise Diagnostics

We survey a student’s current academic skills, history, learning preferences, and past test results. Our in-depth diagnostics allow us to devise a personalized approach even in a small group setting. We offer timed practice tests with observation and feedback on test-taking habits.

Comprehensive Study Plans

More Than Scores And Tests has designed comprehensive Test Prep Foundations curricula to help students master foundational exam content and employ effective test-taking strategies necessary for either ACT or SAT suite of tests. We equip them with study skills they will use beyond test prep. Developed at the Harvard Graduate School of Education and the Harvard Innovation Lab, our program reflects the latest research on learning sciences.

Engaging Coaches

Our Academic Coaches go beyond tutoring. While they are highly trained and knowledgeable in their subjects, they also nurture a student’s motivation, commitment, and learning habits. Our coaches communicate with parents after every lesson to report on the student’s progress and address any questions or concerns promptly.

Demonstrated Success

This unique combination of our time-tested, innovative curriculum and our highly trained coaches has helped our students to reach their academic goals. We have helped students of all abilities — those wanting to place in more advanced level classes in high school, improve a few points to qualify for scholarships or admission, or make larger gains on standardized tests in the long run.
