2021 SAT/ACT “Remote Live” Prep
This program is a tremendous value . Ranney has been generous enough to fully support every 10th grader. By enrolling your child, you are making an excellent choice.
- Top Foley Prep instructors are assigned to 5 sections that will meet “remote live” at certain times
- Open to Ranney class of 2023 only
- Registration closed January 28th. It may be possible to register until February 1st with a $100 late registration fee.
This is the sixth year of the Foley Prep – Ranney School partnership which has given us plenty of experience to fine-tune our approach to specifically prep Ranney students for long-term success on standardized tests. Spring 2020 we successfully transitioned to online classes, and we will continue to leverage our 10+ years of success with online teaching.
While we will be using SAT and ACT materials in the designated classes, each class will focus on concepts and strategies that will help on both the SAT and ACT. So even if you are not sure which test your child may ultimately fare better at, go ahead and select the class that best suits his or her schedule.
Students will build a foundation in key concepts and Foley Prep ACT/SAT strategies in math, grammar, and some ACT science through direct instruction and reinforced through short, targeted practice sets reviewed by the instructor. Homework will be assigned, but the central focus will be engaging students in instruction and problem solving during class time.
- SAT and ACT books and Foley Prep manuals are available at Ranney.
- We use Discord instead of Zoom. It’s very easy to use and we will share information after registration closes.
ACT/SAT Prep Schedule
Choose 1 section and register by January 28th using the form below. If you are not sure which test is best for your child (most people aren’t), register for the most convenient class. We will focus on concepts and strategies that will help on both exams! Please call us at 732-412-1416 if you have any questions.
All Classes meet once a week for 90 minutes. It is possible to jump to another section here or there, but please ask in advance before doing so.
Fees & Attendance Policy
REGISTRATION CLOSED January 28th. If you want to register late, call 732-412-1416. A $100 late registration fee is now in effect. Some sections may be full.
Attendance policy. Each section meets for 11 one-hour sessions. This is an institution-supported program, and is free of charge to Ranney Students, so we need to encourage you to use the sessions. If your child has 8 or more absences, you will be charged $600. You can substitute 1 class by attending the other sections or at the Foley Prep Bell Works Holmdel, Foley Prep Rumson-Fair Haven, or Foley Prep Freehold Hubs.
Instructors: Kyle and JoAnne will be the lead instructors for this program. They’ve been selected from the Foley Prep faculty for their positive student and parent feedback, experience and ability to engage groups of kids with very productive, motivational lessons.
Can you prep for both the SAT and ACT? Our experience has shown that it’s too early to assess which test – ACT or SAT – is better for your sophomore. So, feel free to choose a class based on whichever schedule works for you and don’t worry about whether you are selecting the right test. The ACT and SAT have a great many concepts in common, thus we have geared the program so that most of what your child will learn will apply to both tests.
