The Patrick School provides each of its students with a rigorous, college preparatory curriculum to equip them with the skills and capacities needed for success in higher education. To help our students gain admissions to and scholarship money for the colleges and universities of their choice, we provide a comprehensive, four-year SAT and ACT prep curriculum. Beginning in the freshmen year, students receive a five day per week course covering all topics on the ACT and SAT, from writing and mathematical reasoning to critical reading, science reasoning and vocabulary.
Each student has two full years of preparation prior to taking the PSAT in October of their junior year. Students also take a practice PSAT during their freshmen and sophomore year.
Students are encouraged to take both the SAT and ACT during June of their junior year, and again in the fall of their senior year. Prior to those tests, each student will have three full years of rigorous preparation in the skills and reasoning found on these exams.
