I know with certainty both from my years as an educational advisor and now as a Dad that strong SAT (and ACT) scores will help pay for college. My worries about appearing self-interested have always haunted me in building a company that was sparked by idealism. But now the evidence is clear: doing well on the SAT will lead to college scholarships.
I urge you to ask older parents and school officials about the quality of our SAT courses and individual instruction. I no longer feel guilty about urging people to pay for SAT classes because, for many, the classes end up being an investment. $595 for a class often leads to $48,000 ($12,000/year seems to be the median college scholarship I’ve seen for students with top test scores).
