**English, Math, and Science **will help 7-8th graders apply for CTY (Johns Hopkins) talent search, TIP (Duke) 7th Grade Talent Search, and private schools. Applying to these programs involves taking above-grade level tests such as the ACT and SAT. Our students have received admission to St. Paul’s School, Potomac Private School, National Cathedral School, and Flint Hill School.

**English review** will use ACT practice problems and tests to improve advanced critical reading, essay writing, and grammatical skills.

**Math review** will include **arithmetic review** (number properties, factors, divisibility, fractions, decimals, exponents, radicals, percent, averages, ratios, proportions, rates, and probability), **algebra review** (word problems), and **geometry review. **The math instructor will also teach challenging problems from **Mathcounts and AMC competitions. **

**Science review** includes advanced ACT testing materials. Students will practice reading science passages, analyzing experiments, and interpreting graphs.

The students will grow to become **critical and analytical readers, advanced writers, confident speakers, and future leaders**. They will carry what they learned from the classroom – collaboration, creativity, critical thinking – with them into high school and college.
