To celebrate its 10th anniversary, Maine Prep will host an Open House on July 18, from 4 to 7 p.m., at its offices at 22 Parkers Way, Brunswick, Maine. In addition, the company will offer summer SAT prep classes in eleven locations from Bangor to Kennebunkport to prepare students for the October 6 SAT and PSAT.

From a kitchen table, five students and one teacher, Maine Prep has grown into Maine’s largest SAT prep company, employs a faculty and staff of fourteen, and has helped over 6,000 students raise their SAT scores.

Maine Prep was founded in 2002 by Jack Mahoney, who during the 1990s taught all major tests and trained new test prep teachers for Stanley Kaplan in New York City. That year, Mahoney created the first edition of Maine Prep’s acclaimed TEN for TEN SAT prep curriculum, designed to help students decode the test, polish their skills, raise their comfort level, and score higher. 

“My sons were able to take a more relaxed and confident approach to the SATs, and each increased his score by 200 points,” stated Kim Nashad of Waterville, Maine. “Next year they are both attending their top choice schools. I enthusiastically recommend Maine Prep!” 

Beginning its eleventh year, Maine Prep continues to expand and grow.  Company innovations include a comprehensive SAT essay analysis system, a math tutorial, and SAT WORD OF THE DAY, an original and free Maine Prep service that delivers a new SAT word to each subscriber’s mailbox every day of the year.
