Our basic curriculum prepares students for the SAT Reasoning Test, with additional workshops that let students tailor our classes to their schedules and goals. Most secondary school students who enroll at Elite sign up for our basic set of three classes: critical reading, writing, and mathematics, and the practice test. Students take each of these four units weekly. This is the coordinated curriculum that has led our past students to achieve dramatic score improvements on the SAT Reasoning Test.
Our regular program is offered year-round. During the academic year, we offer classes after school and on Saturdays. Our flexible curriculum means that you can start whenever you are ready. You enroll for four-week periods and can continue as long as you need to. The Elite SAT program offers students a basic package of four interlocking classes: Critical Reading, Math, Writing, and a Practice Test Session. Students meet for a total of 8 hours per week; each of the weekly classes meets for 1.5 hours and the practice test lasts for 3.5 hours.
These are mostly younger students looking for a head start on the SAT. Students learn basic SAT test-taking techniques and develop their understanding of the test material. Those who begin preparation for the SAT at an early age very often prove more successful than those who begin preparing later, thus, this class will prove valuable to young students aiming for impressive SAT results.
Most of the older high school students have already been introduced to the majority of concepts tested on the SAT. However they require guidance in order to apply their high school knowledge to the standardized test format. Classes will focus on developing test-taking strategies while also reinforcing concepts in mathematics, critical reading and writing. In addition, the course offers students frequent opportunities to practice in test conditions.
For the highly motivated few who want to attain truly impressive SAT scores, Elite offers an extremely intensive and demanding program, requiring many hours of out-of-class work and preparation. The program's aim is to develop college-level reading and writing skills, and a thorough mastery of high school mathematics.
Minimum Enrollment Criteria for the 2100 Goal Class:
- a score of 600 or higher on the critical reading section of a diagnostic SAT
- a score of 650 or higher on the math section of a diagnostic SAT
- a cumulative GPA of 3.5 or higher
- a school grade of B+ or better in Algebra II and Honors Junior Year English
Summer, Winter & Spring Boot Camp
The regular School-Year program gives students a solid preparation for the SAT, but if you are ambitious and want to see truly dramatic improvements in your scores, and you are willing to put in the extra effort, we offer several intensive programs with more class time and homework. Intensive classes run during academic holidays, especially during the summer, so you can put in the extra effort without worrying about time taken from your regular studies.
Our summer version of the regular program is an eight-week course beginning in late June. Classes meet five days a week, four hours a day, and have more in-class instruction than any of our other programs. Elite's SAT Boot Camp has a well-deserved reputation for producing significant score increases for students of all ability levels.
