Foley Prep Pricing

The average group size at Foley is 3 students. The maximum group size is 5 students. The small group size and the way we schedule allow us to adapt each lesson to meet the needs of the students in the group. There are no cookie-cutter, one-size-fits-all lessons at Foley; we cycle through mini lessons, drills, and strategy reviews based on the students in the room. Our tutors have the ability and the experience to do ad hoc mini lessons and change the direction of a session based on how the students are performing.

The  four ways to prep at Foley are:

  1. 1-on-1 in-person tutoring. For those who need maximum flexibility in their schedules. All tutoring is in-person at one of our locations, unless online is more convenient or there is a snow day.
  2. Flexible, “self-paced” semi-private tutoring. Start anytime – call us to help you design your own schedule or just go ahead and select from the convenient 90-minute sessions scheduled throughout the week, all year round. Plan it all out in advance or go ahead and adjust as you go. Register at least one day in advance so that our Foley Prep Pros can customize each lesson to the group. Most of our hubs offer 2 or more SAT and ACT classes each day to choose from –  it is the most flexible and effective prep anywhere. We recommend semi-private tutoring to students scoring between 1050 and 1350 (ACT equivalent: between 21 and 28).
  3. Cohort-style “progressive” program. Traditional cohort-style semi-private (3-5 students) tutoring with a set group of students who meet the same days and times every week. The students work with the same teacher (or one teacher for math and one teacher for reading and writing) every session.  We design these programs for folks who prefer a defined start date, end date, and curriculum. As with our self-paced program, we recommend these classes to students scoring between 1050 and 1350 (ACT equivalent: between 21 and 28).
  4. Online options. Students who enjoy the convenience of online tutoring from home can use our chat room for on-demand tutoring, online small-group sessions, or private online tutoring sessions during the widespread school shutdowns and beyond. We conduct sessions via Zoom, Google Duo or Hangouts, Canvas, FaceTime, Discord… we’ll meet students anywhere! All online options are available for all the same subjects as in-person tutoring:  most high school subjects to the AP-level, expert help with English papers, and SAT/ACT Prep including SAT Subject tests.

Choose the program that's right for you.

Select one of the options above depending on your current score, how much time you have before an exam, the intensity level you want, and your budget.

For the Bronze, Silver, and Gold programs, the ideal plan would be to start with a free mock SAT or ACT, then take 3-4 sessions, sit for another mock test, then do an hour of private tutoring to go over the mock test. Repeat this pattern, leaving 2 sessions for the week leading up to the actual test. Most students take 2 sessions a week, but you are free to vary the intensity based on your scheduling contraints. Please keep in mind these packages expire 90 days after the first session is taken.

The 10 Session package is simlar to the programs described above but doesn't include any private tutoring hours. A typical way to use the sessions would be to sit for the free mock SAT or ACT, then take 4 sessions, sit for another mock exam, then take 4 more sessions, sit for the second mock exam, and then use the last 2 sessions in the week leading up to the actual test. This package expires 1 year after purchase, so it is a good fit for students with very demanding non-prepping schedules who may not be able to commit to the other more intense programs.

1-on-1 tutoring is the option for a student who needs maximum scheduling flexibility or wants the prep time 100% focused on his or her needs. If a student has a starting score above 1400 (29 ACT) or below 1000 (21 ACT) we strongly recommend 1-on-1 tutoring. Sessions may be 1, 1.5, or 2 hours. 1.5 hours tends to be the sweet spot - long enough to really dig in to the material but not so long that the student loses focus. Mock tests are bundled with tutoring packages and should be taken every 3 to 4.5 hours of 1-on-1 tutoring.

Plan ahead

A little planning can take a lot of stress out of the process. 1-on-1 and semi-private availability can vary, so it's always best to call us at your earliest conveniece. Our most successful SAT and ACT students call us by spring of 10th grade. We take a consultative (not salesy) approach, giving advice based on our experience helping 10,000+ New Jersey students achieve their highest scores, grades, and top-choice college acceptances.

Cancellation Policy

1-on-1 tutoring: full-charge for appointments rescheduled/canceled within 48 hours, $50 for appointments rescheduled/canceled between 5-7 days. During peak times appointment cancelation can much more restrictive (up to 4 weeks noticed needed).

Semi-private (group) tutoring: students who do not make a 90-minute lesson will not have it charged against their account.
