Every autumn brings three things without fail: changing leaves, brisk weather (most places), and for college hopefuls, applications. The admissions season is stressful for everyone, but there’s a way to alleviate some of that stress and take ownership of the admissions process. In a word? Prepare.

College-prep is a two or four week intensive test and admissions prep program designed to tackle the parts of the admissions process that most determine your success when applying to and making the transition to college: Standardized testing, the Common Application, the college selection process, and navigating residential life on campus. We bring together test prep and college counseling professionals to work with you daily (and one-on-one as needed) to tackle the SATs, the ACTs, and the Common Application while you experience college life living in a dorm on the Suffolk University campus in downtown Boston, MA.

The spectrum of these ranges from strictly living out of a hiking back pack for two weeks in the North West to residing in a French dorm with the goal of foreign immersion. While all of these trips have been rewarding and well worth my time in their own ways, my latest journey to Boston for the Abbey Road test Prep Program was incredibly fulfilling for the particular time in my life that it came.

Standardized Test Preparation with The Princeton Review

The Princeton Review is an industry leader in test preparation and their test prep professionals facilitate this portion of the College-prep program. Daily classes in SAT or ACT prep and four full-length practice tests are designed to help you achieve your best scores. They also offer our students their Satisfaction Guarantee and Fall Wrap-Up, an extra prep session free of charge the fall before you take your test.

The Common Application

Does the formula essays + forms + short-answer questions not equal your recipe for fun? Well, we would like to offer this solution: An afternoon class with a college counseling professional whose sole purpose is to use their background in English and experience with admissions to make your college application shine with your particular brand of awesomeness. You can expect to leave our program with 1-3 (depending on how far along you are in the process upon arrival) Common Application essays and short answer questions completed aka ready to submit!

Residential Life at Suffolk University

The dorm” is a central part of any college experience. By living on Suffolk’s campus, you’ll get to experience this part of college life ahead of time (with the added benefit of your Abbey Road staff members living in the same building). You’ll be on the college “meal plan,” live in campus dorms with your Abbey Road peers and be expected to manage your daily schedule and look after your dorm space (yes we mean pick up after yourself and do your own laundry). In your free time (and respecting our safety guidelines) you’ll be ideally located to easily take advantage of the excitement of Boston’s city center, historic neighborhoods, waterfront and famous Theater district with friends.

College Prep and Admissions Process

The College Prep Program is designed to serve as a roadmap to provide the necessary information to ensure that our students have a challenging, rewarding and positive experience. Our instructors work closely with each student to identify those areas where they might need help. At Abbey Road we emphasize critical thinking so that our students are prepared for the rigor of the SAT or ACT test. During the 2-week or 4-week intensive, students are taught the content on the SAT or ACT test, and techniques, tools and strategies needed to excel. Students receive two practice tests per week and with each test, they can see improvement. Most importantly, Abbey Road students gain the skills and confidence to achieve their full potential
