SAT & ACT Test Preparation Services

  • Test Preparation
    The results of the PSAT come in late December or early January. Using these results as a baseline, students many decide to enroll in an SAT or ACT prep course.Ultimately, all students should consider doing some form of test preparation prior to taking the SAT Reasoning Test or the ACT. At the very least, students should work through one of the many “test prep” books or CD’s that can be purchased at any bookstore. OPHS does not endorse specific companies. The list below is provided as a resource for students and parents:
