What do I need to bring to the SAT Prep Course?
Cornerstone Academic provides all books and materials for their SAT Prep courses. All students need to bring to the course is a pencil, notebook, and a calculator that they’re comfortable with.
When should my child take an SAT Prep course?
Students should take an SAT Prep course before they take the actual SAT exam! Many parents and students come to us and panic after they see their official SAT score and then ask for help. It’s better to prepare ahead of time for the SAT exam because every score is recorded on your official score report (even though you have the option of choosing which scores to report). Additionally, planning and preparing early for the SAT ensures that you have access to scholarships and will help you on a variety of other standardized tests like the PSAT, ACT, AP exams, SAT Subject Tests or even state exams.
What is your Online Course like?
Our Live Online SAT Prep Course is just like our in person course with the added benefit of no commuting! Our online courses are live over the Internet with an instructor teaching the same material you would learn in an in person course. Students can interact using the chat feature and watch previously recorded sessions if they miss an online class.
Who are your instructors?
Our instructors love standardized test prep. And they’re good at it. The instructors who will be teaching your course have, on average, 300 hours of SAT Prep course teaching experience and have scored in the 95th percentile or higher! They genuinely want to see you succeed and reach your goal score.
What is the average score improvement?
Since inception in 2007 and across the thousands of students who have taken our courses, the average score improvement is 207 points on the 2400-scale SAT exam and 147 points on the New SAT exam (1,600-scale). Many of our students regularly see 300-600 point increases as well.
Do you offer a score increase guarantee?
We don’t offer a score increase guarantee. In fact, we run away from it and you should, too. Companies that offer 100% money-back score increase guarantees need to make sure that you see an improvement. This means that they could give you a very hard SAT in the beginning and an easier “feel-good” exam at the end so you see a score improvement. We don’t do that. In fact, we randomize the order of the tests administered so that any increase you see in our course is in line with what you see on the actual SAT. This avoids test shock. What we offer is an Unlimited Retake Guarantee: if you take our SAT Prep course and are unhappy with your score improvement, you can retake our course again at no charge. It’s that simple and it’s how we stand behind our service.
