The SAT/ACT Preparation Program at The Pingry School

Background and Philosophy
For over 30 years, the SAT/ACT Preparation Program at The Pingry School has been helping students from central New Jersey do their personal best on college preparatory tests.

Our 30-hour program is run by educators from The Pingry School, one of the nation's leading independent schools known for its high academic standards. Staffed by a caring faculty that quickly comes to know each individual student's strengths and areas that need support, the program eases fears about taking standardized tests and gives students the tools and confidence they need as they approach one of the milestones on the road to college.

Our faculty is committed to giving your child the kind of specialized attention that has long been synonymous with independent school education. High priority is placed on values such as small classes, the recognition of individual needs, and a commitment to excellence.

The Opportunity: SAT
Beginning in March of 2016, the SAT will be adopting a new format.  Because no one knows exactly what the new test and test experience will look and feel like, we strongly recommend that all current sophomores and juniors students prepare for and take the current version of the SAT before it undergoes this significant change.  Our fall 2015 session will focus on preparation for the current test.

The Opportunity: ACT
Given the uncertainty surrounding College Board's new SAT (March 2016), we suggest that students also prepare for the ACT, a more popular and established exam.  With over 1.6 million annual test takers, the ACT is a trusted measure of student achievement at every highly competitive college.  

Four sessions offered annually

Course structure and logistics
All sessions are held at the Pingry School's Basking Ridge Campus on Martinsville Road in Bernards Township.  The campus is conveniently located just a few miles from Route 287 (Exit 26) and Route 78 (Exit 33).

Fall and winter sessions are held on Sundays from 12:00 - 3:00 PM.  Summer sessions will run Monday through Friday for two consecutive weeks from 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM.  Please note that testing will be held on the first and last day of the program; as a result, it is appropriate to plan for an additional 45 minutes on testing days.
