SAT Prep Courses for 2014 / 2015

The SAT Prep Seminar is an 8 week course that involves a total of 30 hours.

·14 hours of math instruction
·16 hours of critical reading and writing
·12 hours of full-length practice tests
·Both the verbal section and math section have been modified to reflect the changes in the revised SAT, including the addition of higher-level mathematics.
·A new section, the writing module, has been added to the program and includes grammar and essay writing instruction.

To allow for individual attention, our class size is limited to a maximum of 8 students per seminar. The practice tests administered are actual, full-length tests that will be scored and will enable students to become more comfortable with the format of the test and give each student an opportunity to practice applying the test strategies learned during instruction. The writing section of the test will be scored and one of the reviews will include specific comments to help the students improved. Homework is assigned with each session. Individual courses are available at any time. A list of our 2011/2012 courses are below.

Sylvan 2014 Participation in Relay for Life a Success!

Thanks to everyone who has helped support our team in this year's Relay for Life! The Relay was held the weekend of June 6th and 7th and Sylvan raised over $2,000 for the American Cancer Society through our Relay for Life Team!

Many people supported us through fundraisers such as our Gardner's candy sale, Marianna's hoagie sale, Tupperware, and Lia Sophia Bingo. This iis the most money that our team has ever raised!

The theme of this year's Relay was "colors," and our team chose "plum" the color of Caregivers.

Thank you again to all who helped us to relay for a cure!
