With the increased emphasis on SAT scores in college admissions, SAT preparation
has become more and more common among today’s high school students. To help create an “even playing field,” families and schools are
seeking out quality SAT preparation for their students.
SAT preparation is readily available in most metropolitan areas, but there
are few rural opportunities where emotional growth boarding schools tend to be located. That’s why Judi Robinovitz, Certified Educational
Planner and noted SAT expert, took her unique SAT prep workshop, Score At the Top, on the road.
As a 23-year veteran of Educational Testing Service, Robinovitz authored
the College Board’s official SAT prep software and wrote the strategy chapter of their SAT prep books. As a result, she created Score
At the Top, an interactive and entertaining seminar- style program that emphasizes test-taking strategies and critical thinking skills.
Since 1980, Robinovitz and her team of trained specialists have coached thousands
of students to significant score gains on the SAT. Making exclusive use of current, actual tests, they teach skills that serve a much
broader purpose than SAT preparation: they are life skills, designed to help teenagers strengthen the analytic, reading, and vocabulary
skills they’ll need in college and beyond.
As the mother of a successful dyslexic student, Robinovitz created Score
At the Top to be especially effective for LD and ADD students. Scoring a perfect 1600 last year, Robinovitz has created a program
that is equally effective for students at the top of the class.
A recent SAT Weekend Workshop at Mount Bachelor Academy kept students practically
spellbound. The ten seniors were amazed by some of the new test- taking strategies they learned, especially the guessing and pacing
techniques that will help them raise their scores merely by being more “test smart.” Robinovitz was delighted to hear her students
use their newfound vocabulary to impress their friends and teachers during their lunch breaks. Last semester, one of the Score At
the Top teaching specialists presented a week-long workshop at the Academy at Swift River.
