How to study for the SAT

  • Students can access a FREE online tool to practice for the SAT through Khan Academy or the College Board!


    The only official study prep for the SAT is Khan Academy. Khan Academy partners with SAT to give the most current, up-to-date information to help you score your best. Khan Academy will also import data from your previous PSAT and SAT scores which will allow you to personalize your studying and help you perform your best.


    Creating an Account:

    • To create your Khan Academy account, please visit khanacademy.org/sat. You may also link your College Board account (which is automatically created for you when you take the PSAT or SAT) from this website. For help creating or linking your accounts, please contact your AE teacher or Mrs. Rimmey in the Future Center.


    On average, it takes a minimum of
    10 hours of studying for the SAT to improve your score. The easiest way to do this is to set yourself up on a weekly study schedule. For example, if a student commits to one hour, twice a week of studying with Khan Academy, they will likely see improvement in their scores within five weeks. Students can learn about helpful resources in Academic Enrichment, through his or her counselor or at the Future Center.
