Juniors SAT Test Prep Info

Juniors, if you are interested in taking the SAT Test Prep held at Niles West, please read below:

Dear Parents & Guardians: 

The State of Illinois requires all Juniors to take the SAT on Tuesday, April 14, 2020. The SAT is an admission test accepted by US colleges and universities.  All eleventh-grade students in Illinois are required to participate in the SAT in order to be promoted as Seniors and be eligible to graduate. We recognize that this test is important to all our students, as well as their families. 

Niles West will provide 8 tutoring sessions for students who register.  The tutoring sessions will begin on Sunday, January 26, 2020, and end on Saturday, March 21, 2020.  Tutors are Niles West faculty members. SAT Practice sessions are FREE OF CHARGE to our students.

Students will be able to choose one day per week for these tutoring sessions.  The following are the session offerings: 

  • Monday 3:30 PM – 6:30 PM
  • Tuesday 3:30 PM – 6:30 PM
  • Thursday 3:30 PM – 6:30 PM 
  • Sunday 1:00 PM – 4:00 PM

Students will have a 90-minute block in English and a 90-minute block in Math. We will provide eight total sessions, equaling 24 hours of SAT practice. Information provided by Khan Academy has shown that 20 hours of SAT test prep is associated with an average score gain of 115 points.

We are also providing 3 full SAT tests in the Niles West cafeteria as part of this preparation. The mock test dates are: 

  • January 25, 2020 (9:00 AM – 12:00 PM) — Niles West Cafeteria
