Final Exam Cram® Schedules & Registration
Final Exams matter! Your GPA is the number one factor in college admissions … by far!
Because some colleges have removed ACT and SAT scores from their admissions criteria, your GPA is more important than ever. Final Exam Cram is the best way to start and organize finals prep.

Lafayette Academy has mastered the art and science of Final Exam preparation. Each year, we talk to our students before and after our Cram sessions to ensure that we are covering the right topics for the right amount of time. Between our two-hour tutoring test prep sessions and the take-home packets, most students have everything they need to ace their finals. We even include test-taking tips in each of our packets to ensure that students take ownership of their tests.
Our final exam preparation tutoring always takes place the weekend before finals. This gives students plenty of time to identify their skill gaps and plan their finals week studies. We try not to leave anything to chance. Occasionally, we get something wrong (e.g. a new class or teacher), but we always do whatever we can to provide a FREE Cram session before the test to cover whatever topics we may have overlooked.
Final Exam Crams are ideal for students with an A, B, or C in a class heading into the final exam. If your son or daughter has a D or an F in a particular class, we strongly recommend scheduling tutoring sessions as soon as possible. It will take several sessions to bring your daughter or son up to an acceptable grade, and that assumes that the final counts enough to make a big difference. Please don’t call us at the last minute hoping for a miracle. We’re really good at what we do, but Rome wasn’t built overnight and neither are high-grade point averages.
Final exams for high school juniors are, of course, particularly critical. Being local to you and being one of the best tutoring centers in the country – that’s the ideal situation you could ask for in the highest quality exam help. Online final exam preparation help Lafayette, Moraga, Orinda, San Ramon, Danville, Walnut Creek and all SF Bay Area towns – we also offer this option for you.
