What is the SAT?

The College Board defines the SAT test as a "benchmark standardized assessment of the critical reading, mathematical reasoning, and writing skills students have developed over time and that they need to be successful in college." This test defines a student's college readiness and may determine which college they attend.


Fun Fact: The acronym S.A.T used to stand for "Scholastic Aptitude Test." In 1997, the College Board made SAT the trademark so it no longer has any actual meaning.

Course Description: Our SAT course is a comprehensive course that provides preparation for all areas of the SAT exam. It covers practice problems that are tailored to the student’s individual needs and target score to promote content mastery. The class also teaches students the most dynamic and updated strategy methods available to help dramatically improve scores. We have completely deconstructed the SAT and our students learn to think like the test makers. Students build their skills each week and increase their confidence level over the span of the course. They complete a practice test during the first week of the course and turn it in. By the end of the course, students will be familiar with the testing format and will have reviewed the fundamental concepts in each math, reading, grammar, and writing section.
