Frequently Asked Questions

How often does Fordham Prep offer standardized test prep courses?
2018-19 was the pilot year for PREPare Test Prep. Preparations are underway for additional ACT and SAT course offerings.  The schedule for additional courses will be released later this fall.

Who is eligible to take the courses?
PREPare Test Prep courses are exclusively offered to Fordham Prep students only. Register as soon as possible, as we anticipate a significant response for this opportunity run by Prep faculty and staff.

What does Fordham Prep’s standardized test prep courses entail?
Fordham Prep’s PREPare course teaches students strategies for each portion of the SAT, and students take two full-length actual, past SAT tests in their entirety as practice.

When is the best time to take the SAT or ACT?
Students at Fordham Prep are encouraged to take the SAT or ACT no later than the end of their junior year. Taking it by the end of the junior year allows a student time to retake it if he wants to get a higher score. At the end of the year a student will also have just completed another year of English and Math, which will help on the SAT or ACT.
