SELECTIVE PREP INFORMATION
Register NOW for SelectivePrep’s MAP Test Program (for 7th Graders)
SelectivePrep offers a 16 hour program to help prepare students for the Measure of Academic Progress (NWEA/MAP) test that will be used for the 7th grade standardized test score. Scores from this test represent one third of the Selective Enrollment admissions score. Additionally, scores from this Exam will play a crucial role in whether or not a student is admitted to other competitive programs including International Baccalaureate (IB) and advanced magnet high schools.
To fully prepare students for these more rigorous tests, the SelectivePrep program has incorporated material based on the new tougher Common Core standards.
Weekend classes will start on Saturday, March 7, 2015 and run for 8 sessions at our various weekend locations. For registration or more information, go to the SelectivePrep website under Register Now, 7th Grade Programs or click here.
If you need more information or have any questions, please visit our website at www.selectiveprep.com or call 312-409-8411.
