The core of our program is based on learning from actual tests. This principle has proved successful since 1992. We have refined the program to eliminate the “busy” work and place the emphasis on work that results in points on the test.
Advances in technology have allowed us to take our program to an even higher level. We can utilize key features of programs to maximize the efficiency of our students’ learning. The core of the online program is described below. Our unique scheduling page allows the student to modify the schedule below to match his or her schedule. It is a complete program, but you will need to purchase The Official SAT Study Guide published by the College Board. It contains 8 actual tests, and we use these onsite and online. (You can purchase it by using the LINK.)
