Our goal is to teach everyone to score well and provide opportunity.
For both the SAT and ACT, the scores for each individual test date are normally distributed. This means that your score is an indication of how you did relative to the others who took the test on the same day.
Parents' level of education is the best predictor of SAT and ACT scores.
SAT and ACT scores are best correlated with the likelihood of getting a scholarship.
You need to know the content that's on the test, understand the test as a game and learn the tricks and techniques to win, and--most importantly--you need to practice as much as possible. Even if you know how to get each question right, if you're not able to concentrate for more than four hours, you will not get a high score.
