PROGRAMS

English Enrichment Program

Through comprehensive weekly lessons in vocabulary, grammar, reading comprehension, writing, critical thinking and good study habits, our friendly instructors help elementary and middle school students (3rd to 8th grade) build a strong English foundation.

Math Programs

Math classes at Keystone Education are a great way to stay ahead of the curve! Our classes follow the local schools’ curriculum, including the new Common Core Initiative, while encouraging students to work at a faster pace to get ahead of their peers.

Writers workshops

Today’s students are challenged to think critically and express themselves clearly in writing and speech. In our Writer's Workshops class, students learn to analyze both fiction and non-fiction sources to develop their creative and analytical writing skills. Higher-level workshops require students to present their essays to the class, reinforcing communication and discussion skills. This interactive style of learning makes writing both relevant and fun!

 
SAT

The SAT features a heavy focus on text analysis and an emphasis on the key Math and English skills necessary for success in college. In response to the recent changes to the SAT test, Keystone Education has crafted new tests and strategy lessons to best prepare students for the challenges of the SAT. Our experienced teachers and comprehensive materials have helped our students achieve phenomenal results, with over 90% of them increasing their scores significantly.

SAT Writing

The essay component of the SAT is perhaps the most difficult aspect of the redesigned test, requiring an intensive level of analysis and composition. Our classes direct students step by step through the reading comprehension techniques and rhetorical strategies necessary for top scores on the essay. Though the essay section of the SAT is now “optional,” it is actually required by many top colleges including all UC’s.

PSAT

In our PSAT Program, middle school and high school students (7th to 10th grade) encounter a challenging regimen of academic vocabulary, useful grammar, in-depth reading, and critical writing, preparing them for the state’s Common Core testing, the PSAT, and other critical academic challenges ahead.
