SAT Summer Bootcamp 2020
The Crimson Review Summer Bootcamp is an intensive period of study designed to prepare students for the August 29th SAT exam. Students will learn all the components of the SAT, the strategies, and the content knowledge that they will need to be successful on test day.
Everyone knows how competitive college admissions and scholarships are these days – this program is designed to ensure students reach their goals and have the best choice of schools possible.
See below for details on the program and score guarantee.
What To Look For
When comparing SAT summer programs, it’s important to ask some key questions in helping to make a decision, such as:
- Does the program offer a score guarantee? If so, do they set the baseline from an actual College Board SAT or their own (harder) test? Crimson Review offers a score increase of 250 points or the 98th percentile, and uses only actual tests to give a true picture of student progress.
- Does the program offer small group sizes? Our classes have no more than 8 students in Malvern and 16 students in Wayne.
- Does the program use only actual College Board tests (the gold standard), or do they make up their own tests? We use only College Board tests so students know exactly what they will see on test day.
- Does the company specialize in SAT and ACT, or do they offer lots of other tests? Crimson Review is dedicated to these two tests, and our instructors are deep experts. All instructors at Crimson Review scored in the 99th percentile on their own SATs.
- Does the company have a 30+ year track record of helping students succeed? We’ve been helping students do their best on test day since 1986.
