Elite SAT Boot Camp
ELITE SUMMER BOOT CAMP
The SAT Summer Boot Camp provides more in-class instruction than any other program we offer. It is designed for students who are willing to commit most of their summer to improving their SAT scores. Students attend class four or five days per week during the eight week summer program at Elite.
In the Critical Reading component of Boot Camp, students master the deﬁnitions of over 2000 SAT words and sharpen their critical reading skills by reading and analyzing challenging texts from a wide variety of academic disciplines. In the Math component, students are taught all the mathematical concepts tested on the SAT and given extensive problem sets to supplement their classroom lessons. Rounding out the program is the Writing component, in which students develop a strong foundation in English grammar and learn how to write strong essays.
ELITE WINTER BOOT CAMP
Students who need an intensive review for the January SAT Reasoning Test and students who would like to jump start their preparation for the March test will benefit from taking our rigorous Winter Boot Camp. In this challenging eight-day course held during the winter break, students take a full-length practice SAT test in the morning, then attend 4.5 hours of test review and lecture in the afternoon. The comprehensive course covers all three sections of the SAT Reasoning Test: Critical Reading, Math, and Writing.
SAT Reasoning Test Prep (During the school year)
The SAT Reasoning Test is the most widely used college admissions test in the United States. Admissions ofﬁcers use the SAT to assess student skills in basic academic subjects that they will need to succeed in college: critical reading, mathematics, and writing. Because of the test's length, nearly four hours, and its importance in the admissions process, many students are intimidated by the SAT.
Elite's curriculum is designed to give the skills and the conﬁdence to succeed on the SAT. Each week, students take a full-length practice test under realistic testing conditions, followed by three separate classes: Critical Reading, Math, and Writing. In these classes, students don't just review test questions. They build their vocabulary and learn college-level skills in verbal and mathematical reasoning as well as writing, all the while learning how these essential academic tools apply to the SAT. All three classes have extensive homework that reinforces the classroom lessons. This interlocking system of classes has a proven record of producing outstanding SAT scores, including many perfect scores. But just as importantly, it produces students who are ready for the academic rigors of college. At Elite, we don't just prepare students for a test. We prepare them for the future.
The ACT is a nationally recognized college admissions exam whose results are accepted by four-year universities and colleges throughout the United States. The ACT consists of English, Math, Reading, and Science sections as well as an optional 30-minute Writing Test for universities that require a writing score. Elite’s ACT preparation program is a rigorous 4-week or 6-week course designed for students who are successful in Advanced Placement and Honors classes at their high schools and want to round out their college applications with impressive test scores.
SAT 2100 Plus Program
For the highly motivated few who want to attain truly impressive SAT scores, Elite offers an extremely intensive fourteen-week program, requiring many hours of out-of-class work and preparation. The program’s aim is to develop college-level reading and writing skills and a thorough mastery of high school mathematics. Last year, nearly all the students who successfully completed this class scored 2100 or higher on the actual SAT, putting them in the top 3% of students nationwide.
The Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test is a standardized test that provides ﬁrsthand practice for the SAT Reasoning Test. It also gives high school juniors a chance to enter National Merit Scholarship Corporation (NMSC) scholarship programs. Students will be tested on their critical reading, math, and writing skills. Elite’s PSAT preparation program combines customized practice tests administered on a regular basis with weekly lessons that not only cover all major topics tested, but also delve into subject areas in greater depth than do programs at other test prep companies.
SAT Subject Test Preparation
Students applying to many four-year colleges must submit SAT Subject Test scores in addition to the SAT Reasoning Test score. SAT Subject Tests are offered in advanced level math, foreign language, history/social science, literature, and science. Students should consider taking SAT Subject Tests in the subjects that they are currently studying in high school, particularly if the school courses are advanced level and they have performed well in these courses.
Elite provides comprehensive preparation for many of the SAT Subject Tests consisting of weekly practice test sessions and review classes with instructors who not only are knowledgeable about the subjects they teach but also understand how to help students prepare effectively for the SAT Subject Tests.
Advanced Placement (AP) Courses offer students a chance to earn college credit and strengthen their college applications. Elite’s instructors are among the most knowledgeable available, because many are AP high school teachers or college instructors who are experts in their ﬁeld. Contact your local branch for details.
AP Prep courses include: BIOLOGY • CALCULUS • CHEMISTRY • COMPUTER SCIENCE • ENGLISH LANGUAGE • ENGLISH LITERATURE • EUROPEAN HISTORY • PHYSICS • U.S. HISTORY • WORLD HISTORY
College Application Workshops
Elite offers two workshops to help seniors navigate the college application process. In the College Application Workshop, students learn how to write unique, memorable, and powerful personal essays. Teachers meet with students individually to proofread, critique, and revise multiple drafts until students have polished and compelling personal statements. In addition, teachers provide step-by-step guidance in completing college application forms.
The Interview Workshop focuses on the college interview, an experience most students ﬁnd daunting. In this workshop, students have the opportunity to experience several mock interviews and receive constructive feedback from our specially trained teachers. After the workshop, students will be able to walk into their college interviews with a good sense of what kinds of questions to expect, how to converse actively with interviewers, and how to make the best impression possible.
The TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language) is the most recognized and widely accepted English-language test in the world. High TOEFL scores are indicators of readiness for understanding and using academic English at a college level. The TOEFL is a common requirement for non-native applicants applying to colleges and universities in the United States and sometimes even a requirement for government agencies, businesses, or scholarship programs. Occupying a unique position in the test preparation space due to its international reach, Elite is well qualified to provide international applicants to colleges and universities in the U.S. with the support they need to tackle the TOEFL and improve both their written and spoken English.
