Overview

Led by high-scoring, experienced instructors, both the SAT/ACT preparatory courses offer a strategic-based approach to exam success. Through a comprehensive look at test structure, the most effective test-taking strategies and a hands-on learning approach, students will acquire the skill and aptitude necessary to master each section of the exam.

The ACT test preparation course is only offered as a shortened extension of the SAT preparatory course and can be purchased at an additional rate of $195.

Application Essay Workshop

One of the most important components of your college application is the essay. This is your opportunity to set yourself apart from the hundreds of other applicants who have comparable grades and test scores. It’s also the portion of your application that admissions offices use to determine who you are as an individual and whether you would fit well within the University.

In this workshop participants will be offered comprehensive instruction in
the fundamentals of a successful college admissions essay, along with an individualized look at personal goals and strengths to produce a highly effective and distinctive admissions essay.

Location: All classes are held at the Canisius College Center for Professional Development,300 Corporate Parkway, Suite 130, Amherst, NY 14226

Make up classes: Due to the timely structure of our SAT course, missing any class is highly discouraged. We have found this five-week schedule (four classes immediately followed by the SAT exam test date) to be the most conducive to our high success rates. Therefore, we do not offer any make-up classes for our SAT preparatory course.
