Alumni College Panel
We offer a student-centered college guidance program that builds upon the personal and academic advising given throughout a student’s 14 years at LREI. The program begins informally when students arrive in the Ninth Grade. The Director of College Guidance meets with the grade twice every year, through fall trimester of their junior year, to give an overview of the process. This includes academic and extracurricular advice, test planning and general college information.

During spring trimester, eleventh graders begin the College Guidance Seminar, a weekly seminar class that provides step-by-step guidance through the application process. Students also participate in a series of individual conferences to develop prospective college lists. Additionally, juniors take an SAT test preparation course in the spring and several trips to visit college campuses. The College Guidance Seminar continues through the first trimester of senior year, when students complete and submit their applications.
Standardized Testing Program
Each year students prepare and take a number of College Board and ACT standardized examinations:
  • PLAN Test (Tenth Grade)
  • PSAT (Tenth and Eleventh Grades)
  • SAT Reasoning Test (Eleventh and Twelfth Grades)
  • The SAT Subject Tests in a variety of disciplines, formerly known as achievement tests (usually taken in Eleventh or Twelfth Grades)
  • Advanced Placement Examinations (Usually taken Eleventh or Twelfth Grades)
LREI helps students develop an individualized testing plan for College Board and ACT-administered standardized tests. The Director of College Guidance, in conjunction with the College Guidance Associate and the faculty, helps students identify and prepare for the SAT, SAT Subject Tests and AP exams that best fit their college goals. Each department prepares students for SAT Subject Tests in the classroom. Additional test preparation classes are organized when there is sufficient interest. Parents should contact the Director of Academic Support regarding policies governing extended time for standardized testing. Advanced Placement Examinations are offered in May. Usually preparation for AP Exams is conducted through the review class format, which supplements regular curriculum.
