***PSAT Scholars is a different SAT Preparation program, also offered by Cal-SOAP in Summer 2017. Both programs provide a comparable number of hours of test preparation instruction and show similar average score increases, but SWAG also includes lunch, tutoring, team-building and field trips. SWAG is on weekdays June 15-30, whereas PSAT Scholars is Saturdays only and provides test preparation only (no field trips, food, tutoring, etc.) Sophomores (rising into junior year over summer) can apply to both programs, but might be asked to choose one or the other if accepted.

HOW TO PERFORM YOUR BEST ON SAT and PSAT
To qualify for admission to a four-year university, students must take an SAT or ACT. We strongly encourage students to apply to take this six-session preparation workshop series to prepare them to take the PSAT and the SAT. This intensive course normally costs $695; we are able to provide it FREE to qualified students. Students must fill out an application, answer essay prompts and provide a recommendation. Admission is competitive and acceptance is not guaranteed. Applications are posted below. Although priority is given to sophomores rising in to junior year, we will also consider applications from juniors rising in to senior year if space permits. The program will prepare students for the PSAT, but also for the full SAT with Essay. *SWAG is a different SAT Preparation program.
