SAT Summer Institutes

The SAT Summer Institute is an intensive test prep program that provides students with the tools they need to prepare for and succeed on the SAT®. Students often have fewer obligations during the summer, making it the perfect time to develop essential test-taking tools. Students receive in-depth review of the test materials, insight into strategies for succeeding on standardized tests, a comprehensive study plan, and extended online support.

I just want to thank you again for the classroom instruction and online review sessions that my son received through your program at UofSC. The instruction that he received was a tremedous help.

Who should take this course?

Our SAT Summer Institutes are ideal for students that need an intensive preparation program during the summer. This summer institutes are held consecutively and requires students to continue to practice their skills in the weeks and months leading up to their test dates. Students are expected to actively participate in class and in the online review sessions.

 

Online review tools will help you stay at your peak

The in-person, live-online SAT Summer Institutes, and the SAT Live-Online Ultimate includes online tools to help students maintain their skills until test day!

Weekly online office hours provide a convenient way for students to get individualized help with specific questions or concerns. Online office hours are free-form meetings open to all participants from the SAT Summer Institutes live-online, in-person, or ultimate. Instructors will be available to answer any questions that students might have. The sessions are “drop-in” and are student-directed, so there will not be a planned presentation for each session. Instead, our instructors will answer questions and work through problems in the order that they are received.

In addition, students will have access to an online instructor-monitored question forum and to recordings of an expert instructor explaining and reviewing all the workbook modules. Access to the online resources will continue until the end of the calendar year, so students will have extended support as they complete their preparation independently.
