We'll make you stand out!

If you are interested in studying mathematics or science at college, and wish to pursue a career in engineering or technology, you can put yourself ahead of the pack by taking the SAT Subject Tests in Physics, Chemistry, and Mathematics and the AP Physics I exam. These central sciences join together concepts of math, biology, medicine, physics, chemistry, pharmacy, and earth and environmental sciences and lay the foundation for all STEM career fields. In these classes at PUF, we break down all of the key elements of these subjects, with curriculum aligned with state and national standards, so you can learn the material effectively and get adequate SAT II and AP subject test preparation to excel in your school subjects, examinations, and beyond!

Anyone can take the SAT II or AP subject examinations. Colleges like the SAT IIs and APs because the tests make the colleges’ job easier in terms of who they will admit and who they will reject. SAT II and AP tests allow colleges to easily compare you to other applicants and provide you with an excellent chance to shine. If you got a 93% on your final and a student at another high school across the country got a 91%, colleges don’t know how to compare the two grades. They don’t know whose class was harder or whose teacher was a tougher grader. But if you get a 720 on the SAT II Subject Test and that other kid gets a 650, or if you got a 5 on your AP exam and the other kid did not even bother taking it, colleges will recognize the difference in your scores as well as the initiative you actively took towards your academic goals and passion.

Colleges also use the SAT II and AP tests to determine placement. Taking these exams can help you earn college credit while still in school. For example, if you do very well on the SAT II Chemistry, SAT II Physics, SAT II Math, or AP Physics I exams, you might be exempted from certain lower division science courses and be able to double major, graduate early (and save money!), and maximize your career prospects as a result. Taking these classes will help you land your dream college acceptances and will equip you with the skills to think critically, construct solid arguments, and see many sides of an issue—skills that prepare you for college and beyond.

As you prepare to apply to college, you increase your chances of acceptance and make yourself more marketable by taking the SAT II Physics, Chemistry, and Math Subject Tests or the AP Physics I Examination. Our classes will make you stand out in your college apps while enabling you to confidently take CollegeBoard examinations and earn high grades in your CP/Regular, Honors, and AP classes at school too. We invite you to take this initiative and succeed ahead of your peers at school and beyond!
