About the Program
The College Board has redesigned the SAT—the first changes to the college entrance exam since 2016—with the new test taking effect in March of 2024. For the first time ever, the SAT will be administered digitally. Be sure that your student is prepared for the newest version of the SAT through the ASAC’s SAT and ACT preparation class. The class is a two-week course designed to ensure that students are well prepared for and highly familiar with the SAT and ACT tests.
Students will learn strategies that will help them to navigate successfully the reading and grammatical components of both college entrance exams. The class will offer tips for understanding and decoding the questions and problems on the tests; completing all sections in the time allotted; evaluating multiple-choice options; and guessing on multiple-choice questions and eliminating incorrect answers. Students will also receive instruction, practice, and feedback in the following areas: the ACT essay, common grammatical problems, vocabulary etymology, effective thesis statements, and critical-reading strategies.
Students will be offered both large group instruction and independent practice by an instructor with over two decades of experience preparing students for the SAT and ACT tests.
