Do I still need to take the SAT/ACT?
With all of the changes in college admissions, the most frequently asked question from our students has been if they still need to take the SAT/ACT. The answer? Yes, and no.
Many colleges, including Ivy League schools, have adopted test-optional or even test-blind policies (which you can read more about in our blog post here). However, SAT/ACT scores provide access to:
Merit scholarships (free money!)
And while we all silently groan about being forced into a Machiavellian-like experience, what we've found is that with the right support, our students become empowered.
By teaching students the content they need in one-on-one sessions with highly trained and empathetic tutors, our students begin to see themselves as more than just a test score: they see themselves as capable.
WHAT PEOPLE SAY
“My SAT score jumped over 150 points. The atmosphere created here was amazing and I never dreaded going. It felt as if I was the most important student and they were there for me not only throughout these stressful periods in my high school career but also in my everyday life is something that I appreciated so much."
