SAT Prep Courses
For the 2018-19 academic year, separate classes for the SAT and ACT will be offered. Classes cover all sections of the tests, with the exception of the essays, which you can study using supplemental videos available on the SAT and ACT portal pages. Ms. West is well versed in the changes to both tests. Students will learn key terms and strategies for success on the SAT and ACT and have access to a variety of resources including a video library of explanations to various questions from the Official Guides.
The cost of the program includes the cost of the book. Registration is only open to Cheshire Academy students. Students from all grades can take the courses. If you are taking the course only once, it is recommended that you take the class that is offered closest to your target test date. Please also be mindful of your athletic commitments when registering for the course.
