Attention college-bound students! Learn powerful test-taking techniques and strategies for improving your score. High scores on the SAT can help with admittance to the college of your choice and increase the size of potential scholarships. Get ready for the two required sections of the SAT: math and evidence-based reading and writing.
For the math section, you will review the basic concepts of algebra and geometry. This review is especially important for students who are currently taking upper-level math and have been away from the basics for a while. Additionally, problems from third-year college preparatory math (including exponential growth, absolute value and functional notation) will be covered to give you an edge on the more advanced problems.
Preparation for the reading and writing section stresses vocabulary, reading comprehension, reasoning revising and editing skills. Learn about the optional essay section, and strengthen your use of test complexity, -informed analyses, informational graphics and appropriate word choice. Use practice exams, directed feedback and get individualized support.

Taking the test this year I improved by 160 points. I am very happy with my improvement and thought the class was very helpful. - Camryn, Saturday Academy Student
I like how this class really broke down the SAT for me in to smaller parts so it didn't seem so intimidating. Like we went over strategy, commonly missed problems, common problems that occur and more. - Nakita, Saturday Academy Student
