Our Power Prep is one of our most highlighted programs throughout the year. It is an optimal time for any student to increase their scores. Our program is a reasonable once a day program that looks to teach the Math, Reading, and Writing (and Essay) portions of the SAT while also teaching the Math, English, Reading, Essay and Science portion of the ACT.
While some may believe that taking one of the two tests is a matter of preference, we recommend that ALL students take both tests. Since the change in March of 2016, the SAT has reflected a change that is similar to and comparable with the ACT. This gives the student the advantage when preparing for any of the two standardized tests. It is our unique program that prepares students through a hybrid course to effectively prepare the way for college applications for our students.
We have found that having larger classes can quite often be ineffective models for teaching. Our classes will be limited to between 3- 12 students per class (subject to change).
The highlights of our program are as follows:
1. Placement Test
2. 10 Evaluation tests (SAT & ACT) throughout the year
3. Level Based Classes (Intermediate, Advanced, Elite; Perfect score class)
4. Progress Reports
5. Daily Quizzes
6. Online Homework System
We believe in our ability to educate students through our program. Every student that joins the program, will be required to take a placement exam. Those exam scores will be the starting metric for our guarantee program. Throughout the course, we have specific test dates in which the student will be given a diagnostic as to their performance. After each week, parents and students will receive these scores through a progress report.
Our level based class system is also based on the initial diagnostic and evaluation test. Each test will evaluate the student’s needs and will be used to help in assigning new class for the student, the following week. Each subject is split into three unique levels that will help us to effectively work with students in the manner they need.
Each student will be taking daily quizzes to help us focus on specific areas of the test. All quizzes will be made from material reviewed in the homework and class. A passing grade of 80% or higher is required on all quizzes. Any student who does not pass, must remain after school and review the material with a teacher.
Our online homework system is one of our best tools. This system allows us to keep track of the progress your student is making as well as hone in on areas that need to be improved. We require all students to submit their homework regularly.
Overall, our "Power Prep" is unique in that it is a high impact class that focuses on both the SAT and ACT within a short amount of time. We believe the results we achieved from last year are examples of our success. Our wish is to continue educating students through this program, so that they may increase their chances of admission into the school of their dreams.
2019 Fall - 2020 Spring
A typical classroom will include one teacher and up to 12 students. Each class will begin with a review of the homework from the previous class. Afterwards, the teacher will begin a lesson for that day. After reviewing the lesson, each teacher will begin practice with the students. At the AP Academy, we believe in a combined effort to help the student understand the material being presented. The teacher will quite often begin the practice with the students, then ask the students to practice with the teacher, and then have the students practice on their own. This method has been key to ensuring our students succeed in all fields!
Score Improvement Guarantee
At the AP Academy, we offer a guarantee program that will ensure the best and most effective education for your student. Combined with our curriculum and methods, we have achieved a minimum score increase of 260 points on the SAT (7 point increase for ACT) . In the summer of 2016, we had one student achieve an amazing 500 point increase through this program. Since the year of 2016, we have proudly had over 106 students achieve Subject perfect scores on the SAT & ACT tests. We hope to do the same for your student!
The guarantee program requires a work and dedication to the program. We require all students to complete homework regularly, maintain good attendance, and pass quizzes every day. We believe that this program is the best fit for any student who is looking to raise their scores diligently over the course of our program or on Saturdays throughout the year.
