ACT & SAT FoundationsSchedule a Consultation
Want to get a jumpstart on the ACT or SAT?
Foundations is a personalized pre-test prep program for sophomores designed to prepare students for the ACT or SAT by focusing on the foundational skills they will see on the test.
When should I get started?
Typically beginning in the winter or spring of sophomore year, students will meet with a test prep tutor to work on foundational skills in grammar, math, and/or reading comprehension. Tutors will customize these lessons targeting the student’s specific areas of focus in order to strengthen skills before beginning traditional test prep.
