Summer is ideal for SAT Prep

By General Education Advice
Parents of soon to be high school juniors….
Junior year is brutal.  It is easily the most busy year of high school.
In addition to the hardest classes and grades that really matter, the whole college process takes on a life of its own.
Whatever you have heard about the optionality of the SAT, I can assure you that it’s exaggerated for suburban kids from Connecticut.
Optionality was not designed to enhance the admissions chances of students from “good schools” in Connecticut.
Moreover, if you review college scholarships – merit based – you will realize that good SAT scores can amount to tens of thousands of dollars per year.
For most, it makes sense to prep and prep vigorously.
If it turns out that you won’t use the SAT, so be it.  But to give up the opportunity to use test scores for your advantage is foolish for most.
Given those premises, the only question is when to start prepping.
Summer is ideal for most given the challenges that junior year poses.
There are two programs: (1) small seminar and (2) individual coaching.
And, in reality, a third since many – such as your friend – did both.
The benefits of each:
The small seminar is quite small so there is a lot of individual attention.
It is also easily the most cost-effective way to start.
If there is a metaphor, it might be learning the general way to play tennis in a small clinic.  Full detail below.  But essentially, $395 for 5 classes starting in mid-July and ending in mid August.  (Saturday mornings).  Highly flexible, many make-up options.
Individual coaching cannot be beat for customization.  We would focus on Cole’s needs and it’s easy enough to explain.  I meet M-Thursdays.  M-W in Old Saybrook or virtual.  Thursdays usually virtual.
The combined benefit usually is the best of both worlds but whatever serves you best is all that matters.
