As we look ahead to the coming school year, families and educators can expect to continue to see a shift in the way learning is implemented across the US as a result of the ongoing COVID pandemic.
As families everywhere grapple with a new school reality – remote, online learning for the foreseeable future – Huntington Learning Center is ready to deliver a flexible, comprehensive online solution.
With the recent school closures, the College Board announced they are developing a new at-home testing option for the AP exams this spring. Students will be able to take the open-note exams on any device and will be given the opportunity to earn college credit for their courses.
Few students love studying for tests but knowing how to do so effectively can transform their academic career. There are certain practices that make exam prep of all types more productive and successful.
When it comes to teens preparing for success on the SAT or ACT, here’s something parents need to know: not all test prep programs are created equal. And one of the most important things parents should look for when evaluating companies that deliver test prep courses is whether the program meets students’ distinct needs.
Fall is an important time for high school seniors applying to colleges, and Huntington Learning Center is proud to be a part of the college journey for so many students across the nation. Huntington encourages all students to reach for their goals and pursue higher education, which will equip them with skills and knowledge that will last a lifetime.
High school is a different world when it comes to academics—and for many students, it can mark the beginning of academic problems or exacerbate issues that were minor in middle school. According to Eileen Huntington, co-founder of Huntington Learning Center, parents can help their teens avoid such academic pitfalls—if they know the signs. “High school is a time when parents need to pay very careful attention to what is going on with their teen in school because they will be more removed from the classroom than they ever have been,” says Huntington. “Communication with your teen and teachers is important, as is watching your teen’s grades and demeanor overall.”
Huntington shares five academic pitfalls that can plague students in high school—and tips on what to do if you notice your teen falling into any of them.
School may be out for summer, but if your teen is college bound in a couple of years, this is a perfect time for him or her to study for the SAT or ACT. “It’s difficult for most teens to put in the kind of time they need to during the school year to study effectively for college entrance exams,” says Elieen Huntington, Co-Founder and CEO of Huntington Learning Center. “However, with school on break and many extracurricular activities on hiatus, summer gives teens the opportunity to focus on exam prep.”
If your teen is preparing to take the SAT or ACT anytime soon, there is no better time for him or her to register for a customized exam prep course now. Summer break is the perfect opportunity for students to focus on studying for the SAT or ACT, because their schedules are far less crowded with school and extracurricular activities. Your teen can work from a targeted schedule to put him or herself in the best position for the upcoming exam.
