Led by an experienced Ursuline teacher, the HSPT test prep course will help you feel more confident on testing day so you can do your best. The course will cover standardized test taking strategies as well as familiarize you with the format and types of questions on the HSPT, including practice questions for each section.

An HSPT Prep Book will be provided for each registered student.

Ursuline will offer two full practice test options for students enrolled in any of the test prep courses on Saturday, June 29 and Saturday, October 26. You are welcome to participate in one or both, regardless of which prep class you are taking. The full practice test offers students the opportunity to take the practice test in an authentic, timed, school environment, very similar to what you would experience on the actual testing day. Students who are not able to attend either of the full practice tests can complete a full practice test at home from the provided workbook.

The cost of the course is $130.
