ACT/SAT Test Prep Classes

ACT/SAT Test Prep Classes 2017-07-31T17:41:42+00:00

The ACT/SAT Test Prep courses will include a review of basic grammar/style and math topics that appear on the ACT and SAT.  A major component is time management and pacing strategies to maximize scores.


Kate Dalby of INSPIRING Test Preparation teaches combined Accelerated ACT/SAT Test Prep classes throughout the year: Classes are scheduled to start in January for the February ACT and March SAT, April for June SAT and ACT, July for August SAT/September ACT, and August for the August SAT/September ACT.  Custom classes can be scheduled for small groups (minimum five students).  

What is an Accelerated Course?  This is a fast-paced class for high scorers.  (650 or better (P)SAT math/29+ACT math with other scores comparable.)  The recent changes in the SAT make it easier to design a combined course. Generally the first half of the course covers the ACT and the second half covers the SAT with minor adjustments made for test dates.  For recent results see this blog.

Register Now & Pay Later

If you wish to pre-register for a class and pay later (see rebate schedule), you may do so with this understanding: you must either pay in full one month before the class begins or as soon as the class fills up, which ever comes first.  You will be contacted when the class fills and you can decide whether to commit.  There is no cost to pre-register and no obligation.
