Get the tools you need to succeed on the SAT and ACT
With over 187 perfect scores, we help our students achieve incredible results.
Schedule & Class Structure
As always, we have dozens of different options for summer test prep and enrichment, ranging from daily, weekday-morning classes to once-a-week Saturday classes. Each class has different levels to make sure students get what they need from their class. All fulfill the same purpose: to not only develop students’ skills in subject areas that will complement Common Core and AP classes, but also give students the best opportunity to earn scores consistent with Ivy and top-UC admissions.
If you are unable to join us in summer, we offer many other test prep options.

Frequently Asked Questions
Why are consultations necessary?
When should I start preparing for the SAT or ACT?
Each student is different and should discuss with parents and counselors when the best time to begin this process is.
What is the difference between the SAT and the ACT? Why should I study for both?
The SAT includes four sections: Critical Reading, Writing and Language, Math (no calculator), and Math (with a calculator), followed by an optional essay section. The Critical Reading section includes passages from the 18th and 19th centuries. The Math sections are more algebra focused.
The ACT includes four sections: English, Math, Reading, and Science, followed by an optional essay section. The timing of the ACT is faster than that of the SAT. The Math section includes a significant number of geometry questions.
Hamilton Education offers the H3 Program, preparing students for three exams – the SAT, ACT, and PSAT – in a single effort using a skills-based approach. Often, simply looking at the test or even a diagnostic test is not enough to determine which test a student will perform better on. In fact, we’ve had dozens of students who were initially against taking–or studying for–the ACT go on to earn perfect scores on that test. Furthermore, students who know they prefer the ACT will still take the PSAT in the fall of their 11th-grade year, and this test could lead to significant financial aid for college.
Nearly every college accepts both the ACT and the SAT, which suggests that, according to college admissions officers at least, there is no substantive difference between the difficulty level of each test.
