Test Prep Class

Compass Education has partnered with Miss Porter’s to provide comprehensive ACT and SAT prep classes for the Class of 2025. Each class will feature over 20 hours of online small group instruction and 3 full-length practice tests. Both classes will be taught by two of Compass’ most experienced Math and Verbal tutors.

These classes are an excellent option for students who want to begin with group instruction and then transition to private lessons for more targeted support.

COST

$895 $695 (a special $200 discount for Miss Porter’s students)

Financial aid is available for students who qualify for tuition assistance at Miss Porter’s. Please email classes@compassprep.com and arogers@missporters.org with your registration information. Compass will email you a coupon code to apply to the cost of your class fee.

Miss Porter’s School College Counseling Office and Compass Education Group have partnered to offer an at-home, computer-proctored ACT practice test at no cost. This test matches the current paper/pencil, linear version of the test. The test results are invaluable in helping Miss Porter’s School’s College Counselors and Compass directors craft the ideal testing and tutoring plan for each student.

In addition, a Digital Adaptive SAT will be offered at no cost. This new test (learn all about it here) mimics the computer-based test — question type, content, timing, duration, and adaptive structure — so students will get an early feel for what’s to come in fall 2023 and beyond.

DATE & TIME

  • At-Home administration for the computer-proctored ACT (linear, mirrors paper/pencil version) and Digital Adaptive SAT is available anytime until December 31st (2023).

The registration deadline each week is Thursday. By Friday, 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.
