One way or another, you have to prep for the SAT. You have two options:

  • Spend your summer at SSA: All the best of summer camp - campfires, S’mores, nature hikes, swimming - while a targeted, individualized, strategy-based curriculum gets you a 200-point SAT score improvement to get you into your dream school


  • Do traditional test prep after school and nights/weekends:  Sit in a room with 35 other people and work on practice tests on a one-size-fits-all curriculum

A better way to prepare for the SAT!  Come to Colgate not just to shoot up 200 points on the SAT in 3 weeks, but:

  • Live in a dorm at Colgate University and enjoy the college experience

  • Meet people from around the world - maybe your future college roommate!

  • All the fun of a traditional summer camp experience - arts and crafts, access to Colgate athletic facilities, outdoor sports and games, coaching teams

  • Creative, fun, intelligent staff teacher/counselors from highly selective Ivies, universities, and liberal arts colleges

  • College-style non-SAT elective courses in a variety of subjects - songwriting, yoga, creative writing, programming, rhetoric, exploring the universe, improv, 3-D printing and digital design, logical paradoxes!

  • Relationships with other campers and staff that you’ll maintain for years to come

  • 4:1 student-teacher ratio

  • Proprietary, evolving curriculum and strategies that focus on the strengths of each student as an individual

  • Go home not just with an improved score, but with extraordinary summer memories!
