  • Planning to take the SAT on June 4 and/or the ACT on June 11?

    Sage College Prep Services offers tutoring services to help students prepare for the upcoming SAT test.  We bring university-level teaching experience (former faculty at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute and Carnegie Mellon University) into small, customized classes to teach both content and strategies for success.
    Enroll now for classes to prep for the June 4 SAT Test!  The attached flyer describes our 8-class series, held during the month of May.  Each class is limited to 4 students so we can provide personalized attention.  In addition to 16 hours of instruction, the course includes the Kaplan SAT Premier textbook, practice tests, DVD tutorials, and online resources for training and practice.

    Since the SAT and the ACT tests are scheduled on consecutive Saturdays, efficient students are studying during the month of May to prepare for both tests.  The tests are quite different and some students perform better on one than on the other -- and then they can choose which scores to send to colleges.  (See this link for a comparison of the two tests).  For students taking both tests, Sage College Prep Services is offering a special 10-class series that will cover the material for both the SAT and ACT.  Let us know if you're interested in the schedule for this series.

    Remember this is the last time that the two tests will be offered this semester.  After June, the SAT and ACT will not be offered again until the Fall.
