Mission Statement
The mission of the PTSO is to raise funds that will support endeavors to prepare each graduate for success in a four-year college or university.

UPDATES*:

New this year!  In addition to the popular SAT Prep Course, this school year the PTSO has worked with the UCSD College of Extended Studies to include an ACT Prep Course. The SAT or ACT may be used for college applications. Each has its own format and testing style. While the SAT is a common exam used for college applications, with the introduction of the ACT Prep Course at Olympian High School, our students may now also explore and prepare for the ACT. Having both the SAT and ACT Prep Courses available on our campus will enable our students to determine exam options for their most successful college application.

These courses are designed for the student whose busy lifestyle demands efficient preparation in a condensed amount of time by focusing on the test topics that impact your score the most. The prep course will help you score higher on the SAT or ACT with exclusive test-taking tactics specifically designed to increase your score. Students will receive 16 hours of instruction, take practice tests and analyze the results. Seating is very limited so register now! Download Information Flyer
