Beginning in January 2023, a high school entrance test prep course will be offered to 7th grade students on campus at Gwynedd-Mercy Academy Elementary. This course includes 16 hours of in-person instruction. Designed to help 7th grade students learn essential tips and work with practice problems to maximize student performance on high school entrance tests, we focus not only on content but also strategies. This test prep class is a completely optional enrichment to our program and is not required.
Topics include: geometry, analogies, vocabulary, quantitative skills, comprehension, algebraic thinking, and test taking strategies. The program fee includes supplies, six sessions in Winter 2023, and two refresher sessions in Fall 2023. We have aligned Winter 2023 dates with the practice scholarship entrance exams offered to students.
- January 5 3:15 - 5:30 PM
- January 12 3:15 - 5:15 PM
- January 26 3:15 - 5:15 PM
- February 9 3:15 - 5:15 PM

- March 2 3:15 - 5:30 PM
Additionally, two refresher sessions will be scheduled in Fall 2023, dates to be determined to align with the first scholarship entrance exam of the year.
If the Winter dates do not work for your family, we will open up registration in the Fall for the final two refresher sessions.
