Teaching Beyond the Test
Rethinking Test Preparation

Many test prep companies focus on “tips & tricks” to game the test. At Academic Approach, we think of tips & tricks as a small part of a much larger critical thinking toolkit. While they have some value and can support quick growth, that growth will be limited without being accompanied by content knowledge and skills.

Skills-based Instruction

We think the best approach is a combination of strategy and knowledge. Our methodology engages students in rigorous coursework that builds a bridge between what they’re learning in the classroom with curriculum commonly found on tests. The result of this approach is both a growth in the student’s mastery of the various skills assessed on an exam as well as a lasting increase in academic knowledge that leads to better in-school performance. Standardized tests can present valuable opportunities to learn skills that are essential for college readiness.

Teaching Beyond the Test™

We are committed to both score growth and academic enrichment. The core of our methodology leads to students achieving their goals on standardized tests while also acquiring the academic skills necessary to excel in their high school and college coursework.

Every Student is Different

We know our students; each one is unique, and each one requires a different approach, especially during these unprecedented times. That is why our ACT, SAT, and Middle School test prep is customized to each student and school partner.

We improve your students’ standardized testing by tailoring our research-based, expert instruction and curriculum to your needs, and we can get started with you right away.
