SAT Preparation Workshops

The Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) is a standardized test designed to measure basic critical reading, math and writing skills. It is also one of the more popular forms of measurement at major colleges and universities when making freshman acceptance decisions. To get into the college you want, you will need to put your best foot forward. A good college application includes a great SAT score.


Extended Education offers intensive SAT focused workshops designed to familiarize high school students with the exam and to provide you with the tools you need to succeed on the test, and we combine them into reasonable sessions for your convenience. Our Spring 2016 SAT Workshops will prepare students for subject matter on the newly redesigned SAT. Changes in the new SAT include the following:


  • Math:  The SAT will focus on advanced algebra, data analysis, and real-world problem solving and calculators will only be permitted for one of two math sections. 

  • Reading:  The SAT Reading section will last 65 minutes and be made up of long passages followed by reading comprehension questions and will also test understanding of passages from U.S. and World Literature, History/Social Science and Science.

  • Writing and Language/Grammar:  The SAT will test grammar in the form of passages and will also include questions about structure and reading comprehension.

  • Essay:  The SAT essay is optional, and asks students to read a 650-750 word passage and then prepare a facts-based essay analyzing how the author builds her/his argument.
