Additional Information

Choose the Format That Works for You!

SAT Prep Courses are offered on campus in Charlotte and also live-online, giving you the option to choose the format that works best for you. Our face-to-face classroom programs combine the familiar experience of an in-person classroom with convenient online support resources. Live-online courses offer the same great
program as the in-person SAT Prep Courses with the added flexibility of attending class from any location. Our virtual classroom provides you with the opportunity to interact in real time with our expert instructors and to re-watch the recordings of your classes at your convenience through 120 days after your last scheduled class session.

Live-Online Office Hours

Weekly live-online office hours provide a convenient way for students to get individualized help with specific questions or concerns. The live-online office hours are free-form meetings open to all participants from both the on-campus and live-online SAT Prep Courses. The sessions are “drop-in” and student-directed, so there will not be a planned presentation for each session. Instead, our instructors will answer questions and work through problems in the order that they are received.

System Requirements

SAT Live-Online Prep Courses and Live-Online Office Hours require Adobe Connect, a free application. All you need to participate in live-online courses or office hours are a high-speed internet connection and speakers or headphones. Check your system for Compatibility
