Help prepare your student for the High School Placement Test, which is required for admission to many DC-area Catholic high schools. Students will systematically work through the entire provided test-prep book. This includes proven test-taking strategies and a variety of examples. At the end of the week, students will sit for a timed practice test. 

The test-prep book is a separate purchase (available here from Amazon) and must be obtained before the first day of class.

A minimum number of students is required for each class. Holy Cross will confirm with registered families if there are enough participants for the class.

No refunds.
