The College Application Process in One Summer Program

League Academy’s residential program is designed to foster discipline and focus in a student’s academic and personal life. During those 4 weeks, technological distractions are removed. Students do not have access to their phones and other electronics, and they experience a carefully designed schedule which includes daily exercises, study sessions, and leadership activities.

Inside the classroom, students are prepared for the SAT college entrance exam by professors from elite universities.

Outside of the classroom, students are mentored by current Ivy League students and leadership coaches to help them stand out in the college application process.

SAT Curriculum

Improve your score by over 200 points in only 4 weeks.

Foundational lectures by Ivy League professors (6h per day)

The core of the Academy™ is the Official SAT content guided by the Official College Board Curriculum (the company which creates SAT exams). The program will cover all the curriculum that students can encounter on the SAT, techniques to manage their time well on the exam, and shortcuts to get the correct answers faster.

Small Group Study Sessions

Following the lectures, students will have small study-group sessions where they will get personalized help in order to understand how to solve each exam problem and avoid making common mistakes.

8 Official Full-Length SAT exams

Students take 8 Official Full-Length SAT exams and 15 Additional SAT exams broken into sections over a period of 4 weeks. After learning the material and doing the practice problems, the best way for students to prepare for the exam is to take the timed, full-length exam.

Stress Management

Studies show that many students have lower SAT scores because of stress caused by test taking. At League Academy™, we employ world-class stress management experts who will teach students how to manage stress and what to do during the exam if they lose focus or confidence.

Speed & Pattern-Recognizing Strategies

Many of the questions on the SAT are formulaic, and can be quickly solved if students recognize patterns. Therefore, students will be taught shortcuts and how to recognize patterns in questions to solve them quickly and that way have more time to focus on the more complex problems towards the end of each section.

SAT Essay Practice

The argumentative essay in the SAT is very different from the typical essays students see in high school. While most high school essays focus on creating extensive, sound arguments, the SAT essay tests reasoning and students’ ability to argue their views eloquently and in a timely manner. Students will have an opportunity to practice the essays and learn how to build their arguments within the allotted time.

Extracurricular Activities

During our residential program, students will get to experience new sports and fun activities, as well as visit entertainment parks and famous universities nearby.

Sports and Activities

Students will participate in extracurricular activities such as surfing, sailing, zumba, beach yoga, campfire with storytelling, swimming, and archery.

Group Weekend Excursions

Fun group excursions during the weekends include visits to Disneyland, Santa Monica, Hollywood, and more.

College Visits

Students get to experience college tours and info sessions at UCLA and USC, as well as hear from their SAT instructors about the respective Ivy League schools where they teach.

Mentoring

League Academy’s mentoring program goes beyond the SAT curriculum. Our students not only excel in the college application process, to also develop life values such as passion and commitment.

Leadership training

During the weekends, students meet with a personal development and international business coach, Mauricio Espinosa, to learn about high performance habits and leadership skills.

College Application Guidance

Students individually meet with a college counselor who guides them through the application process. The counselor assists with career path selection, crafting a college list, essay writing, and refining the application.

Daily Workshops

Students experience workshops beyond their academics with themes such as mock interviews, stress and time management, learning styles, and public speaking.
