FAQ about the SAT

Click on the question to reveal answers

Why do colleges want me to take the SAT?

The purpose of the SAT test itself is to measure a student’s ability to learn and understand college-level material.

Is it really optional?

55% of colleges in the USA now require the SAT as of 2023. This is a 35% increase from last year. SAT is also used to provide students with amazing opportunities like scholarships. With award amounts ranging from $10,000-$20,000 per semester, to opportunities for full tuition coverage, there are thousands of scholarships that your child can be awarded based on their SAT scores alone.

Applicant with a SAT score vs. an Applicant without a SAT score?

For applicants who may have similar profiles, those that include an SAT score, have a better chance of being accepted than students who did not take a test. Participating in the test demonstrates that the applicant is willing to undertake academic challenges even though it isn’t a requirement of the college.

What is your average score increase after taking the class?

We see a 200-300+ increase in scores for students who took our class and used our amazing strategies when taking the test.

Designed with 5th-7th graders in mind, this 6-week course will teach students the fundamentals of skillful writing, show them grammar usage at its best, and give them the opportunity to explore essay writing in its various forms.

The college app essay is one of the key factors that a college or university scrutinizes in a student’s application. To give students their best chance at success, Accelerations offers your child the opportunity to develop his/her own college essay with guidance and feedback so that they can enter their application period feeling confident and prepared.

This summer only, students can work privately with Mrs. T to develop their college essays from beginning to end. Mrs. T will help students to select a topic, give examples of excellent essays she has helped other students in the past with, and give instructions necessary to get the student’s essays on the right track.

When the essay is at a place where Mrs. T can work with the content, she will then work to transform it for your child. Mrs. T will take the essay to the next level by editing it as if the essay is her own. She will elevate it into a first-class essay that will connect with and wow the college admissions teams. Once it is completed to Mrs. T’s satisfaction, she will deliver the essay to your child and use the essay as a teachable moment for your child by reviewing the highlights of transitions, quotes, grammar, structure and more.

Honolulu & Windward

ALC’s groundbreaking acceleration-based tutoring is unlike the approach of any other tutoring center in Hawaii. Taught by amazing teachers, our program focuses on a child’s needs by looking backwards, supporting certain subjects in the moment, and by teaching ahead of the classroom.

Our goal is to strengthen our students to a place where we are accelerating them ahead of school. This approach helps students to build confidence in themselves and their abilities by teaching them material that they have yet to meet. This allows them to walk into school, ahead of the game and inspired to achieve.
