250+

points

All of our students improve on the test. Average improvement is between 200 to 300 points — in some cases even more — and our small classes are designed around your strengths and weaknesses.   

36

concepts

We believe succeeding on the test requires knowledge and practice. Therefore, we focus on teaching the underlying concepts behind the test, everything from grammar and logic to word problems. 

 

6

students max

We individualize every class to meet our students’ needs. It’s something that we take pride in — and it’s why we limit each class to six students max.


 

Not your average SAT class. 

 

No cram zone

Unlike most SAT classes, we don't believe in cramming as many students as we can into a room.

We limit classes to six students, carefully matching each according to level and expertise. Classes are differentiated between beginners and intermediate students — for advanced students, private tutoring is often the way to go. 

Topics covered include all of the required grammar areas — i.e. parallelism, pronoun-antecedents, and comparison problems — in addition to a complete review of mathematical concepts you'll need to know for the next test.

One of the best courses I’ve ever taken. Oliver is funny and accessible and teaches in a way that makes you want to learn.

These guys are the best. My son, Justin, couldn’t stop talking about how well the instructor explained concepts to him. He kept asking why his school couldn’t do the same.
— Samantha K., McLean
I went from a 1230 to a 1510 and couldn’t have done it without the guidance of Principia and their instructors. Thanks so much!
