This class is underway, so registration is closed. Please consider the
SAT 2 class beginning July 5th or individual tutoring. Thank you!
Due to Covid-19, we are having our classes online.
While this may not be ideal, we are doing everything we can to make it a great experience. Students will submit homework via email and receive written and oral feedback. Students will have time in class for questions. We want the class to be as close to in person as possible
We do not offer classes during the school year. We do offer private tutoring year round. You can read more about tutoring on the tutoring information page.

Course Description: This series of classes is suitable for students seeking to super-charge their performance on the PSAT with the ultimate goal of earning National Merit recognition for their junior-year PSAT score. This class does not require SAT 1/2 or private tutoring. It is still consider an introductory course.
DISCLAIMER: No reputable test preparation company can honestly say it will ensure a student will earn National Merit status from working with it. RWLC is an honest company. Our promise: We shall bring all our experience to bear to multiply your student's chances of earning this lofty goal. RWLC instructors have trained well over 100 National Merit Scholars. We hope to add your student to that rarefied group. There is no difference between the NMA 1 or NMA 2 other than the dates.
Target Audience: Students in the Class of 2023 who, with rigorous training, would have a reasonable likelihood of earning National Merit status.
Applicant Qualifications: Students in the Class of 2023 registering for this class must have previously earned a “Total Score” of 1200 on the October 2020 or January 2021 PSAT/NMSQT.
