SAT Overview

The College Board is in the midst of a major change to the SAT. It started with changes to the PSAT in October of 2015, and continued with the introduction of the “new” SAT on March 5th, 2016. From here on, all SAT administrations will be the “new” exam.

We’ve been following the changes closely and have new curriculum to match the changes the College Board has introduced. Our group classes focus on the strategies and academics for the test, while our one-on-one instruction provides each student with individual attention and a customized learning plan. This has resulted in our students a number of perfect scores over the years. Our instructors are all college graduates, from such schools as the University of Pennsylvania, Bucknell, and Johns Hopkins.
