wk 8/22–News about Catholic High School Entrance Exam (Seventh Exam)

Good morning,

I hope you had a wonderful summer! I am writing to invite your incoming 8th-grade students to take part in a test prep course for the Catholic high school entrance exam (the “HSPT”).

This will be an IN-PERSON class at the Westchester Library.


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, Montini, 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 13 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 form (which includes the link to register). Please feel free to distribute it at your discretion, and let me know if you have any questions! Thank you for your time.
