So how will these workshops be different from other classes or a test prep book?
Our faculty will work with students (both virtual and in person) to highlight individual strategies, focusing on metacognition, time management, and the development of study plans and goals. Each workshop will include homework, emailed out the week before the session. The two hour Saturday class will review the homework problems, pulling out examples to illustrate tricks and employ strategies. Students will then have a chance to review their performance and develop a plan for future study with teacher input. 
 
Students are welcome to take only the workshops for topics with which they struggle, or to sign up for all four. The program culminates in a full length practice test (both SAT and ACT options). The program uses released tests from the college board and ACT and provides students with a full analysis report including scores, areas of weakness, and suggested study plans and strategies.
