SAT/ACT Prep 2021-2022
 
The three companies below will provide our students the option to choose an SAT Prep learning method that best suits them. The options include a traditional one-on-one tutoring session at the Huntington Learning Center’s Ashburn location, or live-online learning with Revolution Prep or Learn the Playbook. Revolution Prep only provides live-online with a maximum group size of 8 students or the choice of one-on-one live-online tutoring  These three companies will provide a small portion of the proceeds from the SAT/ACT Prep enrollments to the BRHS PTSO.  In addition, all of the proceeds from the $25 practice tests will be provided to the PTSO. The PTSO uses these donations to help fund scholarships, teachers' requests, hospitality, Project Graduation, school-based clubs, and organizations, etc. We encourage you to evaluate and choose the test prep option that best suits the needs of your student. 
 
The PTSO does not endorse any college preparatory testing company (and there are many to choose from); the decision to have a student receive SAT/ACT prep rests with the parents. There are one-on-one tutoring, and live online learning methods, for fees and some are free and can be found at the College Board website like https://www.khanacademy.org/sat The most important consideration for parents in choosing what will provide the most help for the student, is to determine how their student studies or learns the best.  Most colleges/universities will use a student’s highest scores on either the ACT or the SAT when considering a student for admission.  The ACT is considered a knowledge-based test and includes a science section, while the SAT is considered a reasoning-based test without any science questions.   
 
The #1 question that has been asked of me for the last four years is: “What grade should my son/daughter be when he/she takes their first SAT/ACT exam with the College Board”? To be able to do the math portion of the SAT exam, your student MUST know and have completed Algebra 1, Geometry, AND Algebra 2. It is very important that they study, review, practice, Free Full-Length Practice Tests from College Board math and reading prior to taking the College Board exam.
