SAT Verbal

Rising Grades 9 to 12

This specialized course is a deep dive into strategies and practice tests that will help students maximize their score on the two verbal sections of the SAT.

Topics covered in this course include:

  • SAT Reading: Information and Ideas
  • SAT Reading: Rhetoric
  • SAT Reading: Synthesis
  • Sample Reading Test Questions
  • SAT Writing and Language: Expression of Ideas
  • SAT Writing and Language: Standard English Conventions
  • Sample Writing and Language Test Questions

Students can expect a fast-paced environment where practice, review, and time management strategies will be the primary focus. Class time typically will not be used for teaching the reading and writing content skills upon which the SAT questions are based. We recommend the SAT Prep course for students who would prefer a less intense approach. Families are welcome to contact the registrar at any time for a recommendation on which course would best suit their child's needs.

Each student receives a copy of The Official SAT Study Guide, which is the official prep manual published by the College Board.
