The course will be broken into small groups (3-4 students) based on ability. The summer is the perfect time to prepare for the rigors of the exam. Throughout the course we utilize the Official Guide to the SAT and ACT, plus additional materials that have been designed specifically for our students to address the areas where they may fall short, need confidence, or are fearful of the concepts they are being tested on. Students will engage in lessons fully tailored to their needs.
