About Oakes Test Prep

Since 2011, Oakes Test Prep has been teaching and mentoring students to help maximize their SAT and ACT abilities in every section of the test. Included below are not only the mission of Oakes Test Prep and the way it guides students, but also the proof of the methods exercised by Oakes Test Prep. 

The Mission

 The mission of Oakes Test Prep is to help students become self-actualized. No matter the test, the individual student will be instructed to help them to achieve their potential.  

How does Oakes Test Prep achieve this goal? By utilizing innovative and proven methods for increasing test scores. The ​methods are innovative, because they have been developed through several years of research, with thousands of students, and proven because of the success of students on the standardized tests. Oakes Test Prep will encourage students and incorporate the use of technology and many other methods of instruction.



 We offer the Oakes Scholars Program for current 9th and 10th grade students to help increase test scores for Governor's School, other special programs, and to gain a competitive advantage for college.  The Oakes Scholars Program also assists students to compete in the National Merit Scholarship Competition and helps to enhance scholarship and college credentials. The last group of 14 Oakes Scholars improved by an average of 270 points from PSAT to SAT.
