SAT/ACT Preparation Courses

The PHS/CLC SAT/ACT Preparation Courses consists of eight (8) four (4) hour sessions in class at Pallotti on Saturdays 2:00 - 6:00 PM plus 32 hours every Wednesday and Friday after school from 3:30 - 6:30 PM online via a GoToMeeting interface, for a total of 64 hours of instruction (the longest in the industry).  CLC does seven (7) in school courses at PHS every year, five (5) during the academic year and two (2) in the summer.  They also conduct ten (10) online courses every year.  Students can register for the courses in class or entirely on-line seventeen (17) times per year all the way through 12th grade!   The courses include two full length practice SAT Exams and cover the areas of Critical Reading, Writing Skills, Math & Science, for the ACT.  The first practice exam is actually a “Diagnostic SAT Exam” that breaks the three broad skill areas of math, reading and writing into 45 sub-skill areas with individual percentile scores in each area. This gives each individual student a targeted profile so that students get individualized and personalized attention.  Included at no extra cost is a 1035 page Barron’s SAT-I Prep Book, 50 in-class handouts, access to several hundred hours of recorded videos and all individualized student reports.  At the end of the course a post practice exam is given and a twelve (12) page performance report is emailed to the parent and student.  The last page of this report is a "road map" detailing those skill areas that the individual student should continue to review.  These courses are taught utilizing the Smart Board Technology with Response Software for rapid scoring of all tests and individualized student report generation.  The CLC courses are rated #1 by Checkbook Magazine above all SAT/ACT Prep companies in the greater metropolitan DC area.  Unlike competitors, once paid for the initial course students or parents never pay the registration fee again!  They return for UNLIMITED FREE REFRESHER COURSES!  If repeating an in school course, there is a minor fee of $75 to re-register the student and for all new and different in class materials.
