The SAT is an entrance exam used by most colleges and universities to make admissions decisions. The SAT is a multiple-choice, pencil-and-paper test created and administered by the College Board.
The purpose of the SAT is to measure a high school student’s readiness for college, and provide colleges with one common data point that can be used to compare all applicants. College admissions officers will review standardized test scores alongside your high school GPA, the classes you took in high school, letters of recommendation from teachers or mentors, extracurricular activities, admissions interviews, and personal essays. How important SAT scores are in the college application process varies from school to school.
What do support services look like?
- High performance on standardized tests (SAT/ACT/PSAT) requires a focused approach to learning the test material in order to produce intended results. At DUYA, we take pride in providing affordable comprehensive SAT/ACT/PSAT preparation with both group & individual instruction for these tests.
- Our sessions typically run 60-90 minutes, two per week during the school year. During summers, students join us for 2 hours per day, five days a week, for three weeks (June, July, and/or August).
- We will cover all sections of both tests, first the ACT and then the SAT. While the tests are similar, the two exams are distinctly different in style and approach. Therefore, we explore with students which test is best for their particular learning style and potential success.
- Pricing information will be provided during enrollment.
