Hello Seventh Grade families—Here is some information on an available test prep course THIS SUMMER to help your child secure a spot at their Catholic high school of choice. The high school entrance exam determines acceptance AND class placement (accelerated or honors programs). It also can make your child eligible for scholarship money at some high schools. Taking a prep class is highly recommended.

Subject: Catholic High School Entrance Exam- Test Prep Class

Good morning,

I hope you are having a great end to the school year. I am writing to invite your current 7th-grade students to take part in a summer test prep course for the Catholic high school entrance exam (the “HSPT”).


This will be an in-person class taking place at Divine Providence School in Westchester. (Please contact us with questions directly, as the school is just graciously providing the space for us to use.)



Our students have seen great success on their exams over the last few years by not only earning acceptance into the schools of their choice (including Fenwick, St. Ignatius, Benet, Nazareth Academy, Loyola, and Marmion) but also scholarship money and awards.  These lessons are also beneficial for overall basic skills and enrichment for the school year.



Megan Kucia is a high school English teacher with 14 years of teaching experience, five of them being in middle school, and Mrs. Amoroso is a middle school math teacher with over 25 years of experience. Mrs. Amoroso and I began this test prep class nine years ago while teaching middle school together at St. Francis in La Grange, and we have had the opportunity to work with students from many area schools, such as St. John of the Cross, St. Francis Xavier, St. Cletus, Our Lady of Peace, St. Joe, St. John’s Lutheran LG, Divine Providence, St. Vincent Ferrer, McClure Jr. High, St. Isaac Jogues, and more.


I have attached the registration information as a .pdf with the link to register at the very bottom- please feel free to distribute it at your discretion. Please let me know if you have any questions! Thank you for your time.
