Introducing the SAT Seminar Course
For over ten years, Orion High School has provided the highest quality digital learning anywhere in the country. As part of our brand, we have always insisted on mentoring one-on-one! Our learner-graduates excel in colleges and universities across the United States and around the World. As part of our commitment to them, while they were here, we provided them one-on-one mentoring, along with challenging proprietary curriculum, built on solid standards for learning that have been an integral part of college and career preparation for the past 30 years in accountability systems.
Over that same time span, Orion High School's students consistently out perform their State and National peers on the SAT and ACT. See our dashboard for additional information about high performance.
Orion High School is introducing the new SAT Seminar Course. We are engaging this course in a different way than we usually have! For SAT Seminar, we are going to provide the learner with 9 live sessions as part of their SAT preparation with us. Under the guidance of Mr. Paul Kraack (Reading and Writing), and Dr. Joseph Gallegos (Mathematics), we will lead live seminars along with one-on-one coaching for participants. The Seminar Course is a one month course, that includes 9 live sessions. Participants may only do the seminars but not the one-on-one sessions. The Seminars will provide lessons, feedback, question and answer, and diagnostics for the participants. The coaching sessions will be individualized to fit the needs of each learner in reading and or mathematics (based on Seminar results).
The Seminar will be offered during these months:
|OHS Seminar Date||SAT Test Date|
|September 1-30, 2018||October 6|
|October 1-30, 2018||November 3|
|November 1-30, 2018||December 1|
|February 1-28, 2019||March 9|
|April 1-30, 2019||May 4|
|May 1-30, 2019||June 1|
The Seminar is structured to allowed learners classroom time with a certified teacher. Those are scheduled throughout the month. During non-live times, however, learners may access content, diagnostic assessments, and will be provided with structured asynchronous activities to complete in preparation for the seminars. Some of the seminars are recorded, and are provided for learners unable to attend the live event.
All live events are scheduled during the Introductory Seminar, to allow participants for input into best times. The Course is structured to also allow for one-on-one coaching of some learners. Coaching sessions are a maximum of 45 minutes per session, and are intended to provide some one-on-one time with the teacher.
Coaching one one one is offered for an additional fee. Students who pay that fee may participate in one-on-one coaching sessions with the teacher. There are a maximum of 3 sessions offered, and each session will be scheduled by the teacher.
