SAT & ACT Preparation

 

The University of South Carolina understands the vital role that college entrance exams such as the SAT and ACT play in college admissions. Acceptance into a student’s school of choice can hinge on his or her performance on these high stakes standardized tests. Properly prepared students are more likely to perform to their highest potential, and University Test Prep is here to help South Carolina’s students meet their potential through our SAT/ACT Institutes. College Board, the test makers for the SAT Test recommends that students to take the SAT once during their junior year of high school and another time during the fall semester of their senior year. Remember to check the application deadlines to ensure that you provide yourself enough time to take the SAT or ACT before you submit your application to the colleges. 

With programs in Columbia, Aiken, Hilton Head, and Sumter, we offer comprehensive SAT test prep and ACT test prep options for Carolina's high school students. Whether you are preparing for the SAT or the ACT, University Test Prep's SAT/ACT Summer Institute offers comprehensive preparation for both tests. Since 2008, University Test Prep has been offering the SAT/ACT Institute which is an intensive test prep program that extends beyond the time spent on the University of South Carolina's campuses. Our blended learning Test Prep program offers intensive classroom training followed by periodic online review sessions. The courses are designed for students currently in high school, we recommend after completing their freshmen or sophomore years.

University Test Prep offers the SAT Blitz at USC Columbia which is same great material and same outstanding instructors as our summer SAT courses - in a slightly condensed format. The SAT Blitz provides Columbia area high school students with an opportunity to prepare for the SAT exam in the weeks leading up to the test.
