Attention college-bound juniors and seniors: maximize your SAT scoring potential. 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 critical reading section stresses vocabulary, reading comprehension and grammar skills. Click here for upcoming test dates. The reading/language/writing portion of the class will occur in the AM session, 9:30-11 AM. The math portion will occur in the PM session, 3:30-5 PM.
