Prosper High School is pleased to announce its partnership with Kaplan Test Prep, the world leader of PSAT, SAT, and ACT prep. Prosper High School’s partnership with Kaplan ensures that students will receive the best and widest range of prep options available. Kaplan will be holding classroom courses at Prosper High School throughout the upcoming school year.
In addition, they also have online classes and premier tutoring packages for one-on-one support. Kaplan teachers are experts in the PSAT, SAT and ACT curriculum and test strategies, and they receive over 50 hours of training before being hired to teach.
This partnership will give students full access to Kaplan’s award winning On Demand program free of charge. The On-Demand program provides 24-hour access to PSAT, SAT and ACT prep and the combined package is worth $797 per student. The On-Demand program won the Education Software Review Awards (EDDIE Awards) in 2011 and was recognized as the top high school "Test Tool Website". With this program, students can work at their own pace and schedule. Powered by Kaplan’s exclusive Smart Track system, it analyzes individual performance and prescribes an adaptive, customized learning plan specific to each student’s strengths and weaknesses.
Prosper High School will be holding a PSAT and SAT/ACT Combo Practice Test on Sept. 14 at 9 a.m. Kaplan representatives will also be at Prosper High School on Sept. 9 at 6:30 p.m. in the PHS Auditorium presenting information on "Getting In" to college. At that time, they will also be available to answer questions and provide more information about the partnership and Kaplan prep course options. Also in September, Prosper High School will be hosting their annual College Night on Sept. 19 from 6 – 8 p.m. For additional information about these and other programs, please contact the Counseling Department at Prosper High School.
