Scoring well on the SAT Test can give your student a decided advantage gaining admission to the college they want with the scholarship help they may need.  The SAT prep class doesn't teach a student the math, English and Social Studies material that will be covered on the test but they do teach the skills and strategies required to do your best.  SAT tests are structured to unnerve the unprepared.  The Specifix Prep Instructor is a testing professional who has taken the SAT more than 20 times.  With his coaching students know how to work through the test without wasting time or making careless mistakes.


The PTSA is partnering with Specifix Prep to offer this affordable SAT prep class for our students leading up to the May 2017 Examinations. Specifix Prep has provided several classes for Annandale HS, as well as at other FCPS schools.

SAT Prep Class



The PTSA will be sponsoring an SAT prep class at Annandale HS for the May 2017 SAT examination. We are partnering with Specifix Prep to offer an amazingly affordable SAT prep class for our students. The proposed schedule is below. Specifix Prep has provided two full classes and several small group classes for Annandale HS students and they have held several classes at other Fairfax County Public Schools. Here is what some Annandale students and parents had to say:


  • One parent told us that his daughter found the class “very helpful and thought Patrick's approach was a good one that she could relate to.”
  • Another student told us, after taking the SAT, that he “definitely used the strategies that Patrick taught” and that he was more confident about the test than he would have been without the class.
  • Another parent told us that “Patrick’s knowledge and experience with the SAT is extensive, so he can focus on the most effective strategies and knowledge that the students need in order to be successful on the test. He understands and teaches both the underlying skills that are needed, as well as the testing strategies that are critical for the SAT.”

The PTSA has worked with Specifix Prep to provide affordable options for our students; however, in order for them to be able to offer such amazingly low prices, we need to have a minimum number of students to sign up for the class. If we have at least 24 students, the tuition will be $200. If we have a minimum of 12 students, the tuition will be $325. Specifix Prep provides all of the course materials and without a sufficient number of students, they would not be able to cover the cost of the course.
