VCU’s SAT® Preparation programs offer serious preparation for these high-stakes undergraduate admissions tests.

All of our SAT® Prep Class options include expert instruction, a proven format, all required course materials, access to diagnostic exams, and online support resources in one convenient, affordable package.

SAT® Prep classes offer:

Expert Instructors: Our test-preparation instructors are highly trained professionals. Our experienced instructors know the SAT® and care about helping you achieve your goal.

Proven strategies: VCU's curriculum was developed by test-prep experts, who have years of experience writing exam questions and preparing students for success.

Superior Materials:  The SAT® Prep Course includes the official preparation guide including practice tests from The College Board and a course workbook.

Online Support: Our online support package for both in-person and live-online SAT® classes includes access to recordings of all class modules, an instructor-monitored question forum, and online office hours. Access to online resources continues for at least 30 days after your last day of class, so you will still have support for your independent practice after class is over.

Convenient Schedule Options: Generally, in-person test prep programs are conveniently held on the VCU Monroe Park Campus in Richmond, Virginia. Live-online classes provide alternative schedules and the added benefit of taking the class from anywhere in the world. In light of the latest COVID-19 developments, in-person classes scheduled during the summer of 2020 have been canceled or moved to an online format.

Value: The course fee includes all course materials, access to online resources, and instruction from a trained professional who cares about your success.
