When we taught our first prep course in 1976 many educators assumed that no prep course could make a substantial difference in a student's performance. The dramatic increases of many of our students have been instrumental in dispelling that notion. Recently, we have seen our most outstanding students score as high as 2370 on the SAT, and six of our students have achieved a score of 800 on one or more sections of the SAT.
As professional educators we have identified a relationship between a student's learning style and his/her success on the SAT. Years of experience have convinced us that the aggressive learners make the largest increases in our SAT program. Consequently, motivating students to become aggressive (as opposed to passive) learners is one of our program's main objectives.
Another objective of our SAT program is to raise a student's level of commitment. We consider a true commitment to excellence essential to true success in any educational program. In addition we recognize that every student has much more ability than he/she demonstrates at any given time. We know that with the proper motivation, learning techniques, and test-taking strategies students will demonstrate more of their potential.
Our SAT program contains some interesting features. In conjunction with our desire for each student to have every opportunity for success we have included the following components: a pre-study packet is sent to students who register early. This material gives students tips for comprehensive preparation before the program begins. Day one of our 39-hour program contains a one-hour student orientation. This introduction helps the student focus on developing personal success. Additionally, a parent orientation is held on the opening day featuring insights into the new SAT . Suggestions will be made to help parents give their children extra support during this critical time, and to better understand the college admissions process. We hope you will take advantage of our outstanding program.

SOME COMMENTS FROM PARENTS AND STUDENTS:
I just wanted to thank you once again for helping my son Brennan with his SAT preparation in 2010. He went on to attend the University of Notre Dame and just graduated with a degree in Mechanical Engineering ...We could not have done it without you. Thank you kindly.
I am reaching out to you to inform you of the scores on the SAT I took on May 2, 2015. My combined score is now 2220 with a 780 in math, 770 in reading, and 660 in writing ...Thank you for helping me to achieve my goals and raise my score by 180 points.
Sincerely, Rex S.
The Manigault Institute was the difference between being a possible candidate for the colleges I was interested in and being a competitive applicant. After taking the 6-week one-on-one tutoring sessions and completing the homework assignments, I scored a 700 Math and 750 Critical Reading. This was a huge improvement as I originally scored 650 on both of the main tests. Not only did Mrs. Manigault provide me with the strategies and knowledge necessary to score in the 700 range, but she empowered me with a confidence in myself and the knowledge that was already present. I cannot help but encourage my fellow high school students to take advantage of the wonderful program The Manigault Institute has in place. Due to the help I received, I have many more opportunities to succeed in my future. Thank you so much!
