Great question! The short answer is, if your child is taking the SAT before March of 2024, they will be unaffected by this change. For an in-depth article on what we know so far about the new SAT, give this a read.

Session Frequency In the vast majority of our programs, students meet with their tutors once per week. Session Times When sessions are scheduled is dependent on student-tutor availability, but tutors typically meet with students after school on weekday afternoons and evenings. Our doors are closed on Sundays to give our tutors a day of rest and the option to worship if they choose.
The differences between the SAT and ACT have been stark in the past, but over the past 5 years, the tests have become very similar. The ACT is a faster-paced test. However, there are some other more nuanced distinctions between the two. We wrote a nice blog article about it. Every student is different and some students perform better on the SAT, while others excel on the ACT. Before recommending a program to any student, we always have them take SAT and ACT diagnostic tests. Contact us to find out the next available diagnostic test dates and reserve your student's spot.

Perspective is important. When you compare the investment in test prep to the investment in a chicken sandwich, it is expensive indeed! However, a chicken sandwich will not get your child into Swarthmore with a $100,000 scholarship. All joking aside, maximizing your child's test scores will increase the scope of colleges they are admitted to and increase their merit awards, the value of which can range from $10,000- $200,000.
Our President's first test prep job was working for a big-box national chain teaching classes of 15 students. That experience both inspired his love of test prep, and left him with the conviction that group classes would never be as effective as individualized test prep tutoring. Since then, we have stayed true to our mission of only offering 1-on-1 SAT and ACT prep.
