Welcome to SAT Prep!
For the 2016-2017 school year we will be using Study Island for the first two sections of the course, then we will finish with a College and Careers course in Canvas. For now, get your user name and password from Dr. Leach and go to Study Island. Check out the website, find your assignment and see who will be the first to get a blue ribbon!

Step-by-Step, once signed in!
  • Each assignment has lessons to learn. Click on a lesson and try 10 questions.
  • If you have a 70% after trying 10 questions, you should see an island icon in front of the lesson! If so...go to the next lesson!
  • If you do not have a 70% after trying 10 questions, go back to the lesson to review and then continue to try questions until you have attained a 70%! You should see an island icon in front of the lesson! If so...go to the next lesson!
  • After finishing all the lessons in an assignment, go to the next assignment.
