ACT/SAT Test Preparation

  • This winter, New Trier faculty members in the English, Science, and Mathematics Departments will again offer an after-school ACT/SAT test preparation course for all interested juniors.  If your student's after-school schedule is busy this winter, we will ALSO offer an evening all ONLINE session.

    The American College Testing Program (ACT) and Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT) measure verbal and mathematical ability. Colleges use the ACT to assist in the selection of applicants. Review courses frequently increase scores, in part by diminishing test anxiety. While enrolling in such a course does not guarantee higher scores, students reach their testing potential with training in the following areas: reading comprehension, sentence completion, vocabulary, student-written essays, critical reasoning, science reasoning, discrete quantitative math, and student-produced responses. Students also increase their scores and confidence level by taking previous versions of the official tests, a key component of our program.

    After-School Program

    We offer sixteen (16) hours in-person instruction to train students. The course is offered at different paces based on students' current course level in math and English. Students are placed in Pace A Math if enrolled in a level-three math course or above; students are placed in Pace B Math if enrolled in a level-two math course or below. The same occurs for English and science.

    Our program includes three (3) full-length practice exams to acquaint students with the test format and pacing; these tests gauge improvement during the program. We provide all materials, in-depth in-person teacher instruction, and guided practice with test-taking strategies. Instruction will take place after school every day--Mondays through Thursdays at Winnetka Campus. The fee is $400 and online registration is completed on our Revtrak payment page . Registration will open Wednesday, December 7th at 7pm. Enrollment will be capped at 75 students maximum and will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis.

    Evening ONLINE Program

    We offer 8 online Zoom sessions (12 hours) of instruction to train students.  Our program includes three (3) full-length online practice exams to acquaint students with the test format and pacing; these tests gauge improvement during the program.
