House of Academia offers tutoring services for the SAT and ACT. These classes assist your high schooler to hone their time management, organizational, essay-writing, computational, and all-around test-taking skills for the purpose of preparing them to enter the world of post-secondary education and potentially setting them up for success in their career and in life.
Standardized tests like the SAT and ACT have become more important than ever over the last 25 years as colleges have used them to evaluate applicants with average school records. The SAT is considered to carry more weight as criterion for admissions than it did 15 years ago.
As students apply to the college of their choice, they are competing with other students for admission. It is important to know that SAT/ACT scores are a significant ranking category for schools. GPA is not a ranking. This means that students with a high GPA and low/no SAT/ACT test scores are passed over for admissions while students with a lower GPA and higher SAT/ACT test scores are shown preference.
