We coach students to mastery.

Here's the big secret about the SAT and ACT: they are highly teachable. Just as a student learns how to play a musical instrument or excel in a sport, your son or daughter can learn to master any standardized exam. He or she just needs the right guidance.

Test prep that really works.

AR students consistently earn average score increases of +5 composite points on the ACT and +200 points on the SAT. In fact, 10% of AR students go on to score in the top 1 percent of test takers nationwide. These results far surpass the industry average of +1 5 composite points on the ACT (source: American College Testing) and +40 points on the SAT (source: College Board).

Our road map to success.

At AR Academics, we offer test preparation in SAT, ACT, SAT Subject Tests, AP exams, ISEE, and more.

Each one of our programs begins with a complimentary consultation, when we analyze past test results (in-office testing available at no cost if you do not have prior scores), discuss our program, and determine a student's best path forward. Our test prep always centers on one-on-one instruction that can be supplemented with small group classes and proctored practice exams.

A typical test prep package includes the following:

  • 2 to 3 hours of one-on-one and/or small group instruction per week.
  • Premium course materials, including the most recently released real exams.
  • Personalized homework assignments based on strengths and weaknesses.
  • Detailed session summaries completed by instructor after one -on-one sessions.
  • Proctored exams with comprehensive diagnostic score reports to track progress.
