ENROLLMENT IS NOW OPEN for Elite's Summer Program for SAT & ACT Preparation (starting June 13, 2016)

Every summer, Elite of Rowland Heights offers a variety of programs and schedules for SAT and ACT preparation. Whether you are planning to take the SAT or ACT, we have you covered.

| Summer SAT Preparation Programs

Most high school students start preparing for the SAT in the summer before their 11th grade because students generally plan to take the SAT in their junior year and can focus on studying for the SAT during the summer time.

For this summer, Elite has been working hard to produce lessons and practice tests for a comprehensive preparation program for the new SAT.

In Elite's SAT programs, students take a full length practice test each week (including the SAT Essay) and attend review classes to strengthen their skills in Reading, Writing, Math and Essay writing.

We offer 8-week and 14-week programs to help students prepare for the October 2016 SAT. We have class schedules during weekday mornings (Monday thru Friday) and weekday afternoons (Monday thru Thursday) as well as a Friday-Saturday weekend program.

SAT Program Highlights:

  • Targets the October 2016 SAT
  • Uses lessons and practice tests available only at Elite
  • Students take a full length practice test every week
  • Students study from lessons and practice exercises covering topics in reading, writing, and math for the new SAT
  • Program includes practice and instructions on the new SAT Essay

Summer ACT Preparation Programs

In Elite's ACT Program, students will take a full length practice ACT (including the Writing test) every week and attend review/lecture classes in Math, Science, Reading, and English. 

Students who have taken or are currently enrolled in AP classes at their high schools (especially for science) should consider taking ACT to show an impressive score on their college application. Most colleges require ACT plus Writing for admission purposes. 

We offer 11-week programs to help students prepare for the September 2016 ACT. We have a program that runs in the afternoon from Monday through Thursday and a Friday-Saturday weekend program.
