SAT -- ACT -- AP Preparation

SAT and ACT tests are an essential part of the College application.  Certainly not the only part, but an inescapable 'line in the sand' that admissions officers use for evaluation.  An in-depth program that includes both subject review and practical advice can benefit even the best student. Our program is effective because it is well designed for success -- and -- because it is taught by EXPERTS.

The second defining statistic after SAT or ACT score on a college application is the GPA.  The 'best' thing is to do well in each class each year of High School.  All too often that is not the case.  If the student is prepared to work, the GPA can be repaired.
