Due to the coronavirus, we are changing our playbook to help our students prepare for the upcoming SAT, ACT, AP Exams, SAT Subject Tests, and academics.
We are going remote for the foreseeable future. Yes, we are just one click away. This move allows us to make sure the health of our students, teachers, tutors, and proctors remains our top priority and still deliver the academic services you expect from the Carnegie Prep team. Especially at this important juncture of the academic year!
Below are details on each of our service offerings and answers to some of the pressing questions you may have. Please do not hesitate to contact us should you have any questions.
The Zoom classroom platform allows our teachers to replicate an in-person, interactive teaching experience. In preparation, our teachers have undergone extensive training on how to lead a virtual classroom, including instructional strategies and available tools.
To access Zoom, students will need internet access and a computer or tablet with a working camera and microphone. All other course materials will be provided. Teachers will be emailing students a link and detailed instructions 3-4 days prior to class start.
Our practice tests will be offered online.
During these challenging times, we are offering complimentary SAT and ACT practice tests to help students stay prepared and keep their skills sharp. Taking timed practice tests is key to success on standardized exams, from identifying content strengths and weaknesses to building confidence and stamina.
If you are new to Carnegie Prep or deciding between the SAT and ACT – We recommend you take a free practice SAT and ACT followed by a complimentary consultation with one of our academic advisors. Our Diagnostic Process helps each student determine which test will be the best fit for their learning style and yield the higher score. Once that important decision is made, we will recommend a personalized test preparation plan.
