SAT Prep 
Use this summer to prepare for the SAT test. Review the basic verbal and mathematical skills assessed on the SAT test, and learn test-taking strategies specific to the exam. Take practice tests with complete multiple-choice assessments, essay prompts, and study resources. Instruction, followed by collaborative, guided, and independent practice, provides the foundation for the course.

Study Skills
Learn the three main concepts that are necessary for success in life, particularly academic life: classic study skills, psychometrics, and the elements of motivation. 

Creative Writing Workshop
The Summer Creative Writing Workshop at R-MA not only allows students the opportunity to hone their own creative writing skills, but also to learn about the techniques used by famous creative writers of the past. Students can focus on either short story or poetry writing in this structured workshop setting, where they will both share and refine their work with the help of their classmates and instructor.

Creative Writing is one of the enrichment classes offered during the four-week summer school program at R-MA.
