THEA Preparation sessions are offered regularly to better prepare future students for the THEA assessment test. This is accomplished through the presentation of test content and suggested test taking techniques. Future students will also take a pre-test sample on each of the three subject areas (math, writing, and reading) in order to help them determine how ready they are to proceed with the THEA. If a future student is not prepared for the THEA, they will receive information on additional support that they can receive prior to taking the THEA. If they are prepared, they can proceed to register for the THEA assessment test.

All future students must attend a THEA Preparation Session prior to taking the THEA assessment test.

The THEA Preparation Session runs three hour in duration.

PLEASE NOTE:  Plan on arriving to the THEA Preparation Session at least 10 minutes early, as seating is limited.  When the room capacity  is reached, all other individuals will be asked to attend a later session.
