SAT/ACT prep course offered during winter break

Da Vinci is once again offering an SAT/ACT Prep course over winter break to its students through PJ Test Prep, a small Test Prep and Tutoring company based in the south bay. They have been in business since 2005 and have been offering SAT/ACT prep with Da Vinci for 5 years and they do a great job!

The course, open to students from all DV high schools, will be 5 days over winter break from Monday January 6th to Friday January 10th, from 10:00am-12:30pm, with a practice test on Wednesday 1/8 from 10:00am-2:00pm. Students are expected to attend all 5 days. The course, normally valued at $500, costs only $100 per student.

After signing up at, students pay the $100 course fee to their school’s office to secure their spot. Please make checks out to “Da Vinci Schools” and write “ACT Test Prep” on the memo line.

These tests are critical for college entrance! This is a very wise investment of time and money!
