  • English SAT Prep Course Offered

    The English SAT Prep cours is a six-day course that reviews the necessary skills assessed as important to the English portions of the Redesigned SAT including reading comprehension and writing. In addition, participants will have the opportunity to become familiar with the SAT format through sample questions and practice. Participants are strongly encouraged to attend each session and do the homework that is suggested. Here is what one of our students said after taking the course: 

    "I took the SAT prep course in my sophomore year, and have felt its benefit in each of my subsequent SAT test experiences. The prep course familiarized me with not only the content of the exam, but also its structure and grading system. Through practice exercises, development of time management skills, categorization of test content, and more, SAT prep reduced the anxiety and uncertainty I felt surrounding the exam, and enabled me to view the SAT as a test like any other-- one which I could prepare for in order to preform at my best." 
     
    The course is offered from 3-5 p.m. Sept. 24, 25 & 26 and Oct. 1, 2 and 3. For course information and registration form, please click here. For more information, contact Ms. Jennifer Noel

    Grades needed for next math course

    As we begin to prepare for the 2018-2019 school year, we would like to  make sure that students and parents are aware of the grades that would need to be earned to qualify for math classes for the 2019-2020 school year.  In addition to minimum grade requirements,  other factors (work ethic, potential for success, teacher recommendation) are also considered.  If any changes are made to the  prerequisites, they would be published in the course catalog and noted in a post here.

    If you have any questions about these requirements, please contact the Mathematics Department chairperson, Candy Sneeringer, at csneeringer@delonecatholic.org.

    Fall PSAT Testing

    Each Fall, the Sophomores and Juniors are required to take the PSAT Test, which is the pre-cursor to the SAT. Due to the large percentage of our students that take the SAT during their Junior and/or Senior years, we feel as though the more exposure and practice our students have to the test the greater chance of success when their PSAT scores count toward scholarship consideration, as well as on the SAT when considered by colleges and universities. This year, the test will be administered on Oct. 10, 2018, and there is a $16 fee required to take the test.

  • Challenge of the Week Solution 8/20 - 8/24

    Thank you to the students who participated in the first challenge of the week! Our first winner submitted an entry of 511108. (The first time I tried this one, I assumed it had to be 4 digits like the original, but the presenter reminded us that it didn't specify that in the problem.)

    The largest number that I ever saw from this activity is 51108^11 (that is, 51108 to the 11th power). I'm not sure if it would have occurred to me to use exponents!
