Standardized testing is one of the most stressful parts of the college application process, and many juniors and seniors find themselves in the middle of a busy school year unprepared for the SAT or ACT. Summer is an ideal time to study, as students are temporarily free from the demands of school and can concentrate fully on preparing for these tests. A week-long intensive class class fits easily into a student’s busy summer schedule. Rising sophomores and juniors will get an early start on studying SAT and ACT math, and rising seniors will have the opportunity to improve existing scores for their final Fall testing dates.


By the end of this course students will be able to:

  • Understand the differences between ACT and SAT math sections
  • Identify the quantitative topics tested by the ACT and SAT
  • Use time management strategies for timed testing sections
  • Employ a variety of test-taking strategies for multiple choice tests


This course will provide an overview of the content covered on the SAT and ACT math sections. At the beginning of the course, students will complete a practice math test to determine their baseline score. During each day of the course, we will review one major content area and work through many relevant SAT and ACT-style practice problems. At the end of the week, students will take a second practice test to assess their improvement. Students may wish to follow the course with one-on-one tutoring.
