We offer the same week-long Intensive course four different times throughout the summer. Typically, a student only registers for 1 week of intensive study, followed by either individual tutoring sessions or the Fall Final Countdown course. Sometimes families opt for multiple weeks of Intensive courses, but there is obviously some repetition involved in the instruction as the each of Intensive courses uses the same curriculum and textbook/practice sets.
The summer SHSAT course is designed to accommodate all levels, and teachers work hard to differentiate and individualize instruction. This course is appropriate for students who are just beginning to prepare as well as for those who took our courses in the winter or spring.
In this session, we go beyond the introduction to the material and really zero in on the most important content, and hone the students' individual strategies for mastering each type of question. Repetition, lots of practice and confidence building are essential to feeling positive in the upcoming year as the test approaches.
SHSAT course registration comes with 2 full-length free practice tests. Students should plan to take one test at the beginning of a course and one towards the end in order to track progress and make plans for moving forward. When you register for a course, you will receive two practice tests in your Sawyer (our booking provider) account. The proctored practice tests will take place at our new 104 1st Place location and last for 3 hours. The dates and links to register for the practice tests can be found here.
