We prepare students for standardized tests that students must take, including the SAT, ACT, SAT Subject Tests, TOEFL and IELTS. We also teach students advanced courses, beginning with Advanced Placement (AP) and progressing to university-level courses. We teach advanced courses for two reasons: first, students wanting to attend an elite university must have superior academic résumés, and second, exploring advanced courses is a good way for students to see if they would really enjoy the careers they are considering. Lastly, we train our students extensively in the English language. Many students will begin with an intensive English as a second language program to acquire vocabulary and the ability to read, write, and speak at a native level. We then teach our students to write and read at an advanced university-level, often by supervising year-long reading and writing programs.
