College Prep

Test Prep

Improve your test-taking skills and make a difference in your scores.

Build your strategy to approach college entrance exams with confidence. While some colleges and universities are waiving standardized test scores, many still use scores to determine merit scholarships. SMU test preparation courses break down standardized tests into manageable units, giving you the skills needed to approach each question. Our instructors, master test-takers themselves, know the material inside out and are trained in the most effective test-taking tips and techniques.

Courses are available online and scheduled throughout the year, in the weeks before test dates. Choose the class that meets your needs to be ready on exam day.

“I really liked getting hands-on with the practice problems, and learning how to go about solving them. [It is] a very brief and in-depth overview of the test that left me with great knowledge and insight into the ACT.”

– Chandler C., 11th grade, RISD student



designed for high school students in grades 11 and 12
Our online ACT and SAT strategy boot camps aim to help students understand the design of the exam in an intensive two-day workshop. Students receive an overview of each section of the exam and then practice test-taking skills as a group and individually. Our instructors focus on teaching strategies for how to approach different types of exam questions and how to apply existing knowledge to solve them.
