SAT Preparation Program
For over 20 years, the SAT Preparation Program at The Pingry School has been helping students from central New Jersey do their personal best on the Scholastic Aptitude Test. Staffed by a caring faculty that quickly comes to know each individual student's strengths and areas that need support, the program eases fears about taking the SAT and gives students the tools and confidence they need as they approach one of the milestones on the road to college.
For many students, PSAT/SAT prep courses have become an important part of the college admissions repertoire. The PSAT/SAT is a rather narrow test of knowledge which asks questions in a specific way. Because of this unfamiliar format, students' test scores often do not reflect their true ability and potential.
The value of a PSAT/SAT course lies in coming to understand what kinds of questions are asked, why statistically proven guessing strategies work, and what techniques work best on each of the eight test areas to give a student the expertise that is necessary for mastering the subtle complexities inherent in this type of test.
In our program, your child will receive a thorough understanding of the PSAT/SAT format. The sessions will focus on:
- Building vocabulary
- Reading comprehension enhancement
- Sentence completion strategies
- Fundamental mathematics review
- Grammar and essay writing review for the new SAT
The crucial areas of overcoming test anxiety and improving levels of concentration are also addressed by this course.
Our 30-hour SAT Preparation Program is run by educators from The Pingry School, one of the nation's leading independent schools known for its high academic standards. The faculty is committed to giving your child the kind of specialized attention that has long been synonymous with independent school education. High priority is placed on such values as small classes, recognition of individual needs and a committment to excellence.
