Question: Do the classes teach Common Core material?
Yes! Starting in 2014, our curriculum has focused on the Common Core State Standards. Priority Institute of Education provides unlimited resources for students to use from practice questions on all subjects to free diagnostic exams. Besides preparing our students for the recent changes made on the SAT and AP examinations, we also help our 3rd-6th grade students understand and apply the Common Core State Standards with our supportive teachers and staff.

Question: What are your classes like?
It depends which class you are interested in, but most of our classes are small class sizes. We want to empower students with quality education, so we have a low student to teacher ratio in order to provide each student the attention they deserve.

Question: Do you teach the new SAT?
Yes, all our SAT material is aligned with the new SAT 2016 exam format. We strive to prepare our students for these exam changes so that they are aware of these changes before exam time.

Question: Where can I find the prices for the classes?

Question: When Do I Meet the Counselor?
Our counselors schedule monthly meeting with each student. These meetings usually last one hour. As the student advances into the 11th grade and needs to start college applications, our academic counselors will request to meet more often—usually bimonthly or more—depending on the student’s needs.
