Capstone’s SSAT Bootcamp will equip students with the fundamental skills and test-taking strategies needed to take the Upper Level SSAT. Students will learn the vocabulary, reading, and mathematics topics tested on the SSAT. As the SSAT is known for difficult vocabulary questions and wrong answer penalties, students will also learn how to answer test questions in a structured and educated way, practicing application of these techniques during in-class drills and homework assignments. By the end of the course, students will be able to walk in on test day with confidence, knowing exactly what to expect and how to perform to the best of their abilities.
This course will equip students with the fundamental skills and test-taking strategies needed to tackle the two most important standardized tests for US university admissions: the ACT and SAT. In the first half of the course, students will cover the grammar, reading, and math concepts tested on both the ACT and SAT, and learn the similarities and differences between the tests. In the second half of the course, students will be split into two streams based on their test preference (ACT or SAT) and learn topics and strategies specific to the test of their choice. Students can also opt for drop-in homework sessions with our test prep teachers for additional personalized attention and feedback. Classes will be taught with Capstone’s own ACT+SAT textbook and official ACT/SAT practice tests (materials included in course fee). By the end of the course, students will be able to walk in on test day with confidence, knowing exactly what to expect and how to perform to the best of their abilities.
