SAT Prep
Do you have pretest jitters? Practice with real test questions, alleviate test anxiety, sharpen academic skills and manage your time better. This course will prepare you to quickly and successfully respond to all SAT question types. Cambridge Educational Services will provide you with all the course materials to help you prepare for the PSAT and December SAT. This class will enhance your student’s overall learning to not only prepare them for college but to do well in all their classes and state required testing. In addition, your students’ grades will have a major impact upon applying for scholarships. Prepare your students for these tests during their sophomore, junior and senior year of high school. Even though the SAT is a junior and senior test for college acceptance, it takes a lot of time and work to raise test scores. By enrolling your student as a freshman or sophomore they have not one but two or even three years to raise their score. The first class will be until 9pm. Room 313
