SAT-ACT & PSAT PREPARATION CLASSES

During the past 35 years, our popular test prep classes have helped hundreds of students raise their scores. We teach testing strategies, budgeting time, analyzing test questions, and ways to deal with test anxiety to improve Reading, Writing, and math skills. In short, we teach how to take a test.

The Academy’s comprehensive course reflects the content facing students with the new redesigned SAT which includes four tests, namely the Reading Test, the Writing and Language Test, and the Math Test. The essay is now optional, and there is no penalty for guessing.

Reading

The reading section, formerly known as the verbal section, includes four single passages plus one pair of passsages.  Passage subjects include one US and world literature passage, two history/social studies passages, and two science passages. 

Math

The three areas of focus for math include the Heart of Algebra, which focuses on linear equations and systems of linear equations, Problem Solving and Data Analysis including ratios, percentages, and proportional reasoning, and Passport to Advanced Math which requires familiarity with more-complex equations. Additional topics include geometry, trig, and the arithmetic of complex numbers. 

Writing

The Writing and Language Test measures your knowledge and skills in revising and editing texts. The questions are multiple-choice and passage based and cover two basic areas: Expression of Ideas and Standard English Conventions. The ESSAY is now OPTIONAL.

The Academy's SAT & ACT Prep classes offers explicit skill development, test taking strategies, guided practice, and immediate feedback to students' questions and concerns. Our students consistently tell us the testing strategies and detailed explanations have proven to be beneficial tools that help them to build confidence and improve their overall performance. Call today as class size is limited.

SAT Group Classes meet  Wednesday evenings.    Time 6:30 - 7:45 P.M. (math) and 8:00 - 9:15 P.M. ((Reading, Writing, and Language)

ACT Group Classes meet Monday evenings - Same times as above.

Tutorial classes can be scheduled throughout the summer and academic year, upon request and at your convenience.

It’s a personalized educational experience, computer assisted. PSAT, ACT, & SAT classes are scheduled throughout the academic year. For additional information and a full schedule of classes, call the Academy today.

Comprehensive Testing Programs

Our comprehensive testing program focuses on both formal and informal assessments and tests. Tests include standardized, nationally normed tests as well as reading inventories and classroom specific measures of student achievement. Now parents can benefit from multiple indicators to determine their child's progress in reading and math and use the information to determine progress, learning, and to plan instruction that specifically meets the individual learning needs of their child. Conferences are necessary to share results and are a part of the testing program. Conferences will be scheduled for all students and are designed to review testing results and make recommendations.

  • Kindergarten Readiness Evaluation
  • Reading Diagnostic Assessment
  • Math Diagnostic Assessment
  • Standardized Achievement Assessment
  • Conferences 
  • Written Report
So often parents recognize their child's reading and math deficiencies, but delay addressing them in hopes that they will independently be able to play "catch up". Studies show, however, that early intervention and recognition of learning difficulties makes a significant difference not only in a child's self esteem, but in terms of his or her overall progress and success.
