Who should participate in the SAT Summer Institute?

The SAT Summer Institute is ideal for students that need an intensive preparation program during the summer. This one-week institute is intensive and requires students to continue to practice their skills in the weeks and months leading up to the exam. Students are expected to actively participate in class and in the online review sessions.
Students generally take the SAT during their junior year of high school. This course is ideal for rising juniors that may be taking the test for the first time and for those high school students that have already taken the exam but wish to improve their score.

Online Tools to Help You Perform at Your Peak


Receive 20 hours of expert SAT instruction and 4 hours of online review

The SAT Summer Institute includes online tools to help students perform at their peak on test day. Four online review sessions are held in the weeks leading up to the fall SAT test dates. Weekly online office hours also provide a convenient way for students to address specific questions or concerns that they may have.  Students need only have high-speed access to the internet, speakers, and Adobe Flash Player to participate in the online sessions—no additional software is required.

The interactive, one-hour online review sessions allow students to participate and ask questions of our expert test prep instructors. The live-online review sessions are also recorded—students can still benefit even if their schedule doesn’t allow live participation. Review sessions will be scheduled between the end of your course and the fall test dates.

Online office hours are free-form meetings open to any student in an SAT Summer Institute. Instructors will be available to answer any questions that you might have. The sessions are “drop-in” sessions and are student-directed, meaning that there will not be a planned presentation each session. Our instructors will answer questions and work through problems in the order that they are received.

Online Review System Requirements:  The Live-Online SAT sessions are offered online using a free Adobe Connect browser plug-in.  All you need is a high speed internet connection, speakers, and Adobe Flash Player, which can also be downloaded for free.

>Check your system for Compatibility

Note: The Adobe Connect plug-in, microphone, and camera are not required or used in the delivery of the online review sessions.
