BALTIMORE, April 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- To provide college-bound students with a premium SATi preparation alternative, Sylvan Learning is teaming up with The Princeton Review to offer Princeton Review SAT test preparation courses and diagnostic tests this summer at Sylvan Learning Centers.
This unique retail partnership will allow The Princeton Review to offer its most popular and intensive SAT preparation course – the SAT Ultimate Course – at four of Sylvan's supplemental education centers. Under the partnership, the courses will be available under a trial arrangement at Sylvan Learning Centers in Portsmouth, NH, Timonium, MD, Crofton, MD, and Bel Air, MD.
"We are approaching this partnership with one goal in mind: preparing students to excel in college entrance exams. We are committed to offering the best-in-class programs and more choices to fit the varying needs of families in the communities we serve," said Jeffrey H. Cohen, chief executive officer, Sylvan Learning.
The Ultimate Course is a 30-hour, instructor-led program that is available in a classroom or a small group format (4 students or less). Both course formats come with a 150-point score-improvement money-back guarantee, and include a kit of study materials, as well as access to an online student center. The online student center provides access to both of The Princeton Review's SAT and ACT self-paced online courses.
"We've scheduled this pilot to take place over the summer to prepare students for the October SATs," Cohen said. "We believe it's a winning combination, both for students and for our companies, and that it will open the door to future collaboration."
"The partnership between The Princeton Review and Sylvan Learning is founded on a common goal of ensuring students get into their best-fit college," said Scott Kirkpatrick, President, The Princeton Review. "We are confident that combining The Princeton Review's expertise in test-taking skills and strategies with Sylvan's expertise in improving fundamental math, reading and writing skills will significantly increase students' test scores and help them achieve their college aspirations."
