Our Lady of Mercy offers workshops to help with academic tutoring and SAT/PSAT preparation. The academic tutoring - Tutors Plus - offers tutoring services through four cycles during the school year. This series of instruction is for any student who may need some assistance to help them be fully successful academically.
The SAT/PSAT Prep Workshop is offered in the Fall, Spring and during the Summer. These workshops focus on helping students understand how to take the test by learning key test taking strategies, building confidence and competence in critical reading, mathematical reasoning and written expression. The Summer workshop provides a more intensive review of the Verbal and Math SAT sections. In addition, over the Summer we provide a separate College Planning & Essay Writing Workshop. This three-day workshop allows participants to meet with admissions representatives and get an inside look at how applications are reviewed and learn admissions interviewing skills. A portion of the workshop will also be spent brainstorming essay topics that will lead to developing a successful college essay.
These programs are made possible through the generous funding of Daisy Marquis Jones Foundation. Thomas Golisano. The registration fee covers processing and materials.
