Sharon Serrago has been preparing students for the SAT/PSAT for over 30 years and has designed this short course to introduce middle school students to the concepts they will see on the PSAT/SAT. While these few weeks are merely an introduction, when the students enter high school they will be eligible for the summer course which is very comprehensive. We focus on content, teaching students the things they will need to know in order to be prepared for these rigorous tests.

Materials in this introductory course include lessons on math, reading, and writing content that students will work through to be sure they are acquainted with the content they will see on the PSAT, SAT, and ACT.


Teachers in the Classroom  are important aspects of this course. While the College Board has begun to advise the students to get their "tutoring" from Khan Academy, no computer program can take the place of a live teacher in the classroom to address a student's questions. When our students are confused about a problem, we will work with them until they understand. Our goal is to help your child attain mastery over all the content in this important test so that he has a greater chance to become a National Merit Scholar.


Testing Experience is a necessary part of preparation for the SAT/PSAT. In this introductory course, we will have time for only one College Board PSAT test, but it is important that students have the experience of a timed environment for testing. Students will receive scores for the tests the same day so that both parents and students can get an idea of how the students do. The test will be the regular PSAT given to high school students. It will not be the PSAT 8-9.

Preparation for these tests will be rigorous.  Students will have homework assignments in this course. Though we will not be able to cover all the material we cover in the high school program, we want to be sure the students understand the concepts we do teach. When we go over their homework in class, we will be able to help with those problem areas.

Our goal is to help students achieve their best scores, whether it is to assure a place in the university of choice or to score high enough to qualify for scholarship awards. This introductory course presents students with the best opportunity to give the students a preview of what is on the test and to help them get started preparing for these rigorous exams.

 Course includes all three areas:
Writing  Reading  Math
