SAT Prep Classes

The SAT I Reasoning Test is widely required by colleges and universities to assess an applicant's potential for success. In today's competitive atmosphere, you should not go into this test unprepared. 

The goal of the course is to prepare you for SAT by reducing your anxiety, increasing confidence in your abilities, and arming you with practical and proven strategies. The SAT is a standardized test that becomes easier and more predictable with practice, preparation, and keen strategy. You will get to know the test from top to bottom, how it is scored, sectioned, timed, and designed. The focus will be on strategies that work, and you will get the chance to practice these strategies.

Registration closes one week before classes start.
