SAT, ACT, and PSAT Test Prep Resources

For more than 10 years, the average SAT score of Academy juniors has been about 20 percent (300 points) higher than the national average.  Outstanding results like this lead to high school students who are accepted to and choose to attend the most prestigious colleges and universities in the country and the world (click to view historical student outcomes data in our College Prospectus; click to read about the success of our most recent group of graduates).


The Academy's College Counseling Office is pleased to work with Testive, a company that offers innovative online test prep and one-on-one coaching, to prepare its students to take the SAT, ACT, and/or PSAT tests.  Testive’s lengthier, individualized test preparation approach aligns well with the Academy’s personalized college counseling experience, which itself is rooted in the school’s commitment to serving and nurturing the “whole child.”  The Harrisburg Academy / Testive partnership is the first of its kind in Central Pennsylvania, with two enrollment periods offered annually.

 

Testive’s Approach to Test Prep

TestiveTestive’s service is a blended approach to test prep that combines powerful, adaptive software with human motivation.  All Academy Upper School students have free access to the Testive software platform, which was designed at MIT, to prepare themselves to take the SAT, ACT, and/or PSAT.  Keo Our Kounlavong-Sabath, Harrisburg Academy’s college counselor, monitors progress digitally through the Testive portal and provides each student with regular feedback.

For families interested in additional support for their children, the Academy offers the option to purchase one-on-one coaching services from Testive at a negotiated partner rate of $747 (40% off of list price!).  Each Testive test-prep coach holds his or her students accountable by assigning curriculum, reviewing statistics, and meeting with them weekly for a half-hour, one-on-one video chat. 

Prospective or current families interested in learning more about this partnership should contact Keo Oura Kounlavong-Sabath.
