have transitioned from high school to college! As you get ready to buy
your textbooks or pack your things to decorate your dorm room in
your dream college, we know that you will succeed because we have
watched you learn to think critically and develop the verbal and math
skills required to achieve an “A” in your courses. The EA Team is SO
PROUD of each of you because you have remained focused on your
college goals, and you are now reaping all the benefits of your efforts.
But we also know that making this transition can be challenging, so
we want you to remember that the EA Team is always just a call or
For those of you who are beginning the process, we know that
sometimes the entire college application process can be challenging.
And that is true for parents as well as students. We hope that you will
let EA help. Our college professors who have an expertise in English,
reading, math, and test-taking skills want to help students develop the
skills required to make this transition.
While training with EA, students learn to think critically and develop
the verbal skills required to read and write at a college level. Often
the performance level needed to obtain an “A” in a high school history
or English class does not match the level of writing and reading
needed to receive the same letter grade in college. EA students are
prepared to make that transition because they understand the
expectations that their professors will have for them. Additionally, our
experience as test designers allow us to help our students
comprehend how a test is structured. With this knowledge, the test is
demystified and thus less anxiety producing.
Since EA’s mission is to build a students’ self-esteem, in each
session, we help students see how the strategies being taught to
prepare for the SAT or ACT can be applied to high school
assignments thus helping to get better grades in high school as they
prepare for college. Simultaneously, we help high school students
remain focused on their college goals by teaching them about the
process what admissions officers will use to evaluate a potential
student and how they can improve their chances of acceptance.
EA understands that parents have questions, and we encourage the
parents of our students to call us. We also run free workshops to help
parents understand the differences between the ACT and SAT so
that they can better guide their children in choosing the most
For those of you who are preparing for the college process, we want
to let you know that last week we began our six-week course for the
October SAT, and our next session will begin on September 29 for
the November test.
