HSPT and ISEE Prep Courses, for Boys
About the Programs
Our HSPT Prep Course prepares young men for the High School Placement Test. Most Catholic high schools and some private schools use the HSPT as an entrance exam. This course is designed to help students become familiar with the HSPT by taking timed practice tests in a real test-taking environment. Each question on the test will be reviewed by an instructor who will explain how to answer more efficiently and effectively, while also giving general test-taking tips. A complete course is 4 days long, with 2.5 hours of class time each day.
After many inquiries about the possibility of an ISEE prep course to complement our popular HSPT prep course, Westcott is proud to announce our first course to prepare you for the Independent School Entrance Examination. The ISEE is used by many private secondary schools and magnet schools as their primary entrance exam. This course is designed in the same way as our HSPT course.
Please note that this course is NOT a remedial tutoring program. We will cover all of the concepts presented by the test, but we will not spend time tutoring each student on a specific concept that may not have been covered at his school. When receiving his scores, each participant will know the specific areas in which he needs to improve and may be advised to seek tutorial help outside of our course. Needless to say, if a student is not engaged in his regular classes and homework, he will probably not benefit much from our program.
While the HSPT and ISEE are a very important part of the high school application process, there are other essential factors which determine acceptance to particular schools; namely, grade point average, teacher recommendations, and a personal essay. During the course, we will give general tips in these three areas and a provide students with possible essay questions common to local Houston schools.
