Class Structure

Pre-program Practice SAT/ACT Test

Most test prep programs waste students’ time by reviewing content that students already know. The Livius mastery-based test prep program begins with a diagnostic pre-program practice test that helps our expert instructors identify exactly what topics students need to review. We can then target those areas rather than use the scattershot approach of our competitors

8 Live, Online, Weekly Classes

Livius instruction complements that mastery-based approach to the content on the SAT & ACT with a deep dive into the test-taking and critical thinking skills essential to not only improved performance on standardized tests, but success at the college level. 2 Livius Prep SAT/ACT textbook PDFs will be provided as supplemental material.

Info Session and Q&A Following Test Date

After classes are completed and following the official SAT on March 11th or the official ACT on February 11th, Livius will be hosting an online info session and Q&A with our Academic Director and a Livius Prep College Counselor. Parents and students are welcome.
