Saso Online HSPT® Prep Classes
for 8th grade students
The Saso Online HSPT® Prep Class is designed to help students improve their scores on the HSPT®, which will increase their chances of being accepted to a Catholic high school. Our classes provide complete coverage of the five sections of the HSPT® — Verbal, Quantitative, Reading, Math and Language.
Our Online HSPT Prep Class Will Help Students:
- Improve their scores on the HSPT®
- Strengthen their math and English fundamentals
- Learn study skills and test-taking strategies
- Master time management
- Build self-confidence going into the HSPT®
Over the first five classes, students will take a model test in each of the five sections of the HSPT®. This will serve as their baseline score. Next, we teach students the problem-solving strategies and techniques they will need to know in order to be successful in each section. Then, over the second half of the course, we give them a second practice test in each of the five sections. In this way, students are able to see how they have improved in each area, which in turn builds their confidence going into the HSPT®.
Average Score Improvement
Our 2020 online HSPT® prep students improved their overall score by an average of 41 points (out of 298 total).
There is homework associated with the online HSPT® prep class which consists mainly of finishing worksheets that were begun in class. There is a homework checklist included in the HSPT® prep binder, so students will know exactly what assignments are to be finished after each class. If students need help with the homework, we offer an optional hour of “Homework Help” after each class.
In December, students will be given access to our online HSPT® Mock Exam. This 2.5-hour, video-guided Mock Exam is timed the same as the actual HSPT® and is a great way for students to practice taking a full-length exam before their actual test date. Students can take the online Mock Exam as many times as they would like and will have access until their actual HSPT® test date.
