Here’s the lowdown on Foley Prep’s mock SAT and ACT piece of the program. We have practice tests every Saturday and Sunday at all Foley Prep Hubs. Read on to learn how to make the most of these practice tests we’ve been offering for the past 6 years solid!
Be sure you have the right calculator for test day! Last week one of our Foley Prepsters had his calculator confiscated at the ACT site. This was very jarring for him, as it was allowed Casio calculator that he had used twice before on the ACT. If your child is not using the ultra-common, permitted TI 83, or 84 calculators, please go to the following links to print out the permitted calculator information - and BRING THE PRINTOUT ON TEST DAY!
Note: We advise students taking mock tests at Foley Prep to bring the calculator with which they are most comfortable. We do not enforce the ACT and SAT calculator policies in our mock tests.

Establish a relationship with an SAT/ACT tutor who also tutors Algebra 2. Set up a weekly meeting and stick to it no matter what. 3/4ths of the time could be spent on making sure the student is kicking ass in Algebra 2, and 1/4th of the time could be spent reinforcing and applying the Algebra 2 he or she is learning to SAT and ACT problems.
