    Hewitt School and Compass Education have partnered to offer the brand new Digital Adaptive SAT at no cost. This new test (learn all about it here) mimics the computer-based test — question type, content, timing, duration, and adaptive structure.

    In addition, an at-home, computer-proctored ACT practice test is being offered; this test matches the current paper/pencil, linear version of the test.

    The test results are invaluable in helping Hewitt School college counselors and Compass directors craft the ideal testing and tutoring plan for each student.


    Digital Adaptive SAT:
    Available anytime between March 16-24

    ACT (computer-proctored, linear, mirrors paper/pencil test):
    Available anytime between March 23-31

    The registration deadline is every Thursday. By Friday the week that you register, we will send you a detailed confirmation email; the link to take the test will be included; you can take the test anytime during the open testing window.

    Compass Education Information Session



    Thursday, October 12th


    Compass Education’s Sophomore Enrichment course will improve students’ fluency with the math, reading, and writing skills that appear both on standardized tests and in their regular academic classes. The course is a low-stress way for students and families to begin their preparation for standardized tests without making a premature decision between the ACT and SAT or compromising students’ focus on their performance in school. Lessons will reinforce students’ foundations in grammar, reading comprehension, algebra and geometry, graph interpretation, and more. Students will also receive up to date information regarding the new Digital SAT test.
