SAT and ACT Readiness: Practice Tests, Result Analysis and Test Preparation (ages 14-17)

sat prep


The vast majority of  colleges in the United States accept either the SAT or the ACT , so  students should  choose the test that best suits them.  Choosing which test, preparing to take either test, or even thinking about taking the test can be stressful  for students  and parents.


These workshops are designed to first determine what test is best for each student, and then prepare them for either the August 26th SAT exam or the September 9th ACT exam. Emphasis is on small class size (no more than 10 students), and the highest quality test prep strategies.

These sessions include holistic test prep:

  • Test-specific strategies
  • Academic review
  • Methods to control test anxiety
  • Ways to maintain motivation and focus under pressure.

These strategies can help students achieve score increases of up to 300 points on the SAT and up to 5 points on the ACT with less anxiety and more confidence!


The first portion is a two-session practice test administration, one for SAT and one for ACT. In each of these first two class meetings, students will complete one 4 hour practice test. Tests are corrected immediately after the exam, so students will walk away with score results.


After the administration of the second practice test, students will be informed of their score comparison, and the instructor will recommend the Test Prep class they will be enrolled in, either the SAT Test Prep or the ACT Test Prep. Students will then be automatically enrolled in the recommended session, and will receive emails confirming the dates, times and locations of the Test Prep session. These dates are scheduled with the intent of being as close to the actual test dates as possible to provide the best preparation, and reduce anxiety as the test approaches.  Dates for each are noted below.


Class fee includes the two meeting Practice Test session, and one fo the 4 meeting Test Prep sessions as recommended by the instructor. Space is limited to only 10 students so register early.

All students will attend the Practice Test Administration
