Bridge Classes

We understand how difficult school has been for many this year.  After almost a full year of virtual or hybrid school, students are finding themselves rudderless, losing focus, and falling behind.  That’s why this summer First Choice Prep will again be offering our popular Bridge Classes in Maths, Sciences, and the Humanities to help students get back on track as they get back to full-time in-person learning.

Intro to College Reading, Writing, and Grammar: this three-week course will help students take their reading and writing to the next level.

SAT and ACT Boot Camps

Our boot camps are designed to give students the essential knowledge they’ll need to confidently attack the SAT or the ACT. Over the course of two weeks, students will learn the most effective skills and strategies on all sections of the test they’re prepping for.

Boot camps are split into two halves: the first week (Monday – Thursday) will focus on verbal skills like reading, grammar, and writing, and the second week (also Monday – Thursday) will focus on math, data interpretation, and science (ACT only). Students may opt to sign up for either half of the boot camp or the entire course. These boot camps are perfect for sophomores just starting out on the test prep process and juniors looking to boost their scores on the SATs and ACTs being offered this summer and fall.

Session 1: July 5 – July 15, 7:15pm – 9:00pm

Session 2: August 16 – 26, 7:15pm – 9:00pm

Cost: $645 for full course, $395 for half (verbal or math/science)
