Roxbury SAT Team

  • Roxbury SAT Team

    The SAT is a national test that colleges and universities often require for admission to their university. The test itself assesses critical reading skills, vocabulary, computation and mathematics skills, and academic grit. This course teaches all of these skills to students in a comfortable environment at Roxbury High School with an English and Math teacher. The course will include two practice exams for students to gain familiarity with the exam format. This course can be taught both in-person and in a virtual setting.
