Kent’s SAT winter program condenses its summer residential curricula into an intense and comprehensive 6-day course. Being immersed in a ’round the clock’ environment of mature and goal oriented peers, students are better focused and equipped to achieve personal best scores.
For 11th (and qualified 10th) graders, this crash course is the best preparation for the January 2014 SAT. At Kent, we believe that the SAT is a test that can be mastered. The critical thinking skills profited in our residential programs are distinguished as invaluable for college and post-college years.
“The months I’ve spent here were some of the most productive months of my whole life. I’ve learned a lot of new things. My SAT score increased a lot and it makes me very satisfied.”
-Albert (Maryland, US)
“The college experience is about self-reliance, self-motivation, and self-teaching. Kent equips students with the knowledge and experience required to thrive as independent thinkers and survive the rigors of college life. Because of Kent’s intensive program, students achieve high scores on the SATs and demonstrate the ability to approach real-world problems that the exam results are meant to reflect.”
- Adam Irwin (London, U.K.)
“When I first arrived at Kent, I was under the impression that it would be continuous studying and nothing more. Kent immediately exceeded my expectations, because everyone helped motivate each other and friendships were made quickly. Aside from the positive reassurance and teamwork, I was sincerely impressed with the curriculum. If I could recommend this program to prospective students, I would encourage those who either have or want to hone their work ethics. I encourage students to apply if they genuinely want to do well on the SATs and also make lifelong friendships. If you apply yourself in this course, you will definitely succeed. The teachers were extremely qualified. They were concise and explained material in detail, and I could not have asked for more.”
-Max (New York, US)
“To be honest, I was first reluctant about an SAT prep program because my impressions from my past experiences with SAT Prep courses were negative, and I was never satisfied with my results. Therefore, during my search I was really looking for intensity, and qualified teachers to help me beyond just studying. To me studying is just regurgitating information, but what I wanted to gain were learning strategies, and constructive criticism particularly on my essays. I came to Kent not knowing what was going to happen but was happily surprised right after the first day. Not only were the teachers qualified, but so were the counselors. It was a relaxing environment while also academic focused.”
-Ben (New York, US)
“I was looking for a challenge and I came across Kent’s program on their website. Kent was exactly what I was looking for: SAT prep and more. My goal was to break a 2300 on the SAT and I achieved that goal. At the beginning of the program, I bonded with campers within just two days! It was so hard to say goodbye on the last day. I wanted to stay there for the rest of the year. If you are considering Kent’s program, it’s best to remember that while you’re there, you have to work very hard if you want to excel in the program.”
-Stephanie (Beijing, China)
“This year at Kent, I learned that I could push myself past the boundaries. I was able to excel beyond what I thought was possible academically, while meeting some of the most amazing people along the way. I learned so much about my study habits and what it takes to work more efficiently. Kent taught me that confidence is necessary in order to achieve success. I accomplished goals that I didn’t even believe I could achieve. I now realize that the fate of the future rests in my own hands.”
-Eunice (Maryland, US)
“On the surface, Kent may seem like any other SAT camp that focuses on vocabulary drills or just improving a score. However, once you start attending Kent, even as soon as the first day, you quickly realize it’s not simply for SAT training. This program also offers training for one’s overall identity. I particularly enjoyed a program called CAP training. We got inspiration that not only helped us with our study habits and SAT prep, but also our future and our lives. Kent motivates you to be a better person. If you are just looking for a better SAT score, don’t come to Kent. This is a lot more.”
-Daniel (New York, US)
