SAT/ACT Prep Course Summer 2017

This summer, rising juniors and seniors are invited to take an SAT/ACT Prep Course at the Prep, taught by Grace Opdyke, a noted educator who has had great success preparing high school students for their standardized tests.

Opdyke, the mother of two Prep grads (Joseph ’09 and Matthew ’14), is the founder and principal of Grace B. Opdyke Educational Services in Blue Bell, which provides test prep, college counseling services and tutoring.

This course will consist of eight classes (dates below), with four dedicated to SAT Prep (two Reading/two Math) and four dedicated to ACT Prep (one for each of the test’s sections: English, Math, Reading and Science). This test prep course is open to boys and girls from any school.

Each day, the class will run from 11:30 am - 2 pm, which allows students taking make-up or get-ahead courses in the morning to also participate in this course. The cost of the course is $690 per student.

“For years, I have recommended students to Grace Opdyke for test prep work and the results are astounding. It is very exciting that she will be here at the Prep this summer working directly to assist students in increasing their scores and giving them different options for college.”
