SAT Prep

Your Student's Path to Higher Scores and Better Schools.

Getting accepted to a top-tier college or university is more competitive than ever—and along with GPA and extracurricular activities, your child’s SAT score is one of the most important factors for gaining acceptance. It’s also the only factor that can be substantially improved in a short period of time.
