SAT-ACT Prep - Email #1 Variety-04.pngMEK’s SAT Prep program is a series of courses designed for students in grades 9 through 12 at various points in their test prep journey, from early preparation to experienced test-takers. Each course covers the same content, but with a focus on different parts of SAT Prep depending on students’ current score range.

 

We believe that strong reasoning skills are not just a requirement for the SAT, but for a strong college education. With this foundational goal in mind, we transform the concepts learned in the school classroom into reasoning skills necessary for successful testing.

 

Based on the results of your child’s SAT or ACT Practice Test, our dedicated counselors and expert instructors create an individualized test-prep timeline, which includes specific course recommendations, a comprehensive study plan, and practice materials for improvement and skill building through our Canvas platform.

 

Our average SAT student scores a 1450 or higher on their official exam, placing them in the top 5% of SAT test-takers in the nation. Plus, MEK students consistently improve 160+ points, with many students improving 200+ points within 20 sessions.

 

MEK’s College Test Prep programs are in a class all their own. We strive to give your child an extraordinary level of attention and care by treating their needs and goals as the top priority. All MEK instructors are trained education professionals, so you can rest assured your child is receiving quality resources, a strategic curriculum that meets them at their current level, and lessons that build skill mastery and confidence. Plus, our group classes and one-on-one tutoring make for a fun, dynamic, learning experience.
