FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
The SAT is an entrance exam used for college admissions decisions. The SAT measures students’ knowledge in three core subject areas: Reading, Writing, and Math. Most colleges and universities require SAT or ACT test scores to compare candidates. In addition to reviewing SAT or ACT scores, colleges and universities review high school GPA, high school classes taken, letters of recommendation, extracurricular activities, and personal essays.
Our comprehensive course curriculum helps students prepare for all parts of the SAT test: Reading, Writing, Math, and the optional essay. Throughout the course, students are given our SAT Prep book and access to an online account in which they will be assigned practice problems, tests, quizzes, and homework assignments.
Most high school students will take the SAT multiple times, beginning in their Sophomore or Junior years of high school. We recommend that students take the SAT after they have completed Algebra 2. Although the SAT is offered several times per year, you want to give yourself plenty of time to retake the test before your college applications are due.
Yes, students are required to complete homework outside of class. After each class session, students will be assigned weekly sets of homework problems. Please expect to spend a few hours a week outside of class completing these assignments for the best results.
A majority of colleges accept either the SAT or ACT and do not prefer one test over the other. There are some differences between the two tests, so be sure to research them. If you are deciding which test is better for you, we recommend taking a timed full-length practice test for both tests to see how you score.
