Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT)

The SAT is a standardized assessment that helps colleges assess the qualifications of applicants for advanced study in college. Schools use the test as one predictor of academic performance in a college program.

Designed by experts, the SAT test preparation program uses actual SAT questions and provides an easy-to-follow preparation plan. The 16 hours of targeted instruction covers:

Quantitative Topics

  • Review frequently tested math skills
  • Practice solution techniques for problems containing variables
  • Learn efficient approaches to problems that seem complicated
  • Discover tactics for translating word problems into equations

Verbal Topics

  • Understand how to approach the passage for reading comprehension questions
  • Choose vocabulary using context clues
  • Apply conventions of standard English
  • Understand how notetaking accomplishes a goal
  • Recognize correct use of logical transitions
  • Interpret data presented in charts

Test Taking Strategies

  • Master time-management strategies
  • Use the process of elimination
  • Minimize test anxiety
  • Identify common distractors

Students generally take the SAT during their junior year of high school. Our SAT test prep course is ideal for rising juniors that may be taking the test for the first time, for high school students who have already taken the exam and wish to improve their score, and for younger students who are curious about the latest format of the SAT.


Our SAT Prep Courses are offered live-online, giving you the option to choose the schedule that works best for you. Our virtual classroom provides you with the flexibility to attend class from any location, the opportunity to interact in real time with our expert instructors, and the ability to re-watch the recordings of your classes at your convenience through 120 days after the last scheduled class session.

Live-Online Office Hours

Weekly live-online office hours provide a convenient way for students to get individualized help with specific questions or concerns. The live-online office hours are free-form meetings open to all participants. The sessions are drop-in and student-directed, so there will not be a planned presentation for each session. Instead, instructors will answer questions and work through problems in the order that they are received.

System Requirements

The live-online SAT sessions and Live-Online Office Hours are offered online using a free Adobe Connect application. The only requirements are high speed internet access and speakers or headphones. Check your system for compatibility.
