Enroll today. Start Anytime.
We have an all-star team of full-time, salaried tutors who are committed to meet with you onsite at Foley Prep or online if it’s more convenient for you. We believe strongly that in-person learning is the way to go for K-12 kids especially; while we follow CDC guidelines, we will only shutdown if the government forces us to.
For SAT and ACT prep, we recommend that you make a plan by calling us during sophomore year. We are not salesy. Ron, Eric, Brian, Mike, Jamie, Liam, Melinda, Resh, Henry, and Jeff are constantly on the phones giving advice to new and ongoing clients. We have never been a volume business, but we are pleased to say that enrollment has grown very nicely by word of mouth even through 2020.
Choose How You Prep
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 include:
- 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 (i.e., something like transportation or a snow day gets in the way of travel to one of our locations).
- Flexible, “self-paced” small group tutoring. Average class size is less than 3 students. Maximum 8. 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 small group tutoring to students scoring between 1050 and 1350 (ACT equivalent: between 21 and 28).
- Cohort-style 7-8 Week “progressive” SAT or ACT programs. Traditional cohort-style small group (3-8 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).
- 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.
