Every time I took a class at Elite, I got better. I learned so much about my academic strengths and weaknesses. Plus, I’ve made lifelong friends at Elite!

ABOUT THE SAT
The SAT is a standardized entrance exam used by most colleges in the U.S. to determine a student’s readiness for college. When making admissions decisions, colleges consider applicants’ SAT scores along with a number of other factors, including GPA, extracurricular activities, personal statements, letters of recommendation, and interviews.
The SAT is divided into four parts: the Reading Test, the Writing and Language Test, the Math Test, and the optional Essay. Students are given 3 hours and 50 minutes to complete the entire exam, including the Essay section.
There are seven SAT test dates each year in August, October, November, December, March, May and June. Students may take the SAT any time starting their freshman year. Many students take the SAT for the first time in their junior year and often retake it in the fall of their senior year.
ABOUT THE COURSE
It’s easy to be intimidated by the SAT. It’s almost four hours long and a crucial part of the college admissions process. But Elite’s proven SAT prep curriculum is designed to give you the skills you need to master it. Each week, you’ll take a full-length practice exam under realistic testing conditions, along with classes focusing on Reading, Writing and Language, and Math. You’ll become intimately familiar with the format of the SAT and learn strategies to identify the concepts being tested in each question. So when test day rolls around, there are no surprises. You can walk in with poise and confidence, ready to reach your goal.
We’re proud of our faculty, and at Elite, we only hire the best: experienced teachers who are experts in their fields and display the energy and enthusiasm necessary to engage students.
Elite’s lessons and practice tests have been developed over the last 30 years with great care and attention to detail. We’re constantly adapting our curriculum to fit changing standardized tests.
