Introduction to Screenwriting

Be part of the next generation of storytellers.


This class is an intensive study of screenplay format for the feature film. Using industry standard Final Draft software, students will develop and produce work at a level that is both effective and reflective of individual voice. Areas of focus include story structure, character development, tone, genre, and attention to the audience. Equal consideration is given to both the technical and creative aspects of the medium.

SAT

Objective

The SAT is an entrance exam used by most colleges and universities to make admissions decisions. It is a multiple-choice, pencil-and-paper test administered by the College Board. The purpose of the SAT is to measure a high school student’s readiness for college and provide colleges with one common data point that can be used to compare all applicants.

Breakdown

The SAT is divided into four parts: the Reading Test, the Writing and Language Test, the Math Test, and the optional Essay. Students are given 3 hours and 50 minutes to complete the entire exam, including the Essay section.

Timeline

There are seven SAT test dates each year in August, October, November, December, March, May, and June. Students may take the SAT any time starting their freshman year. Many students take the SAT for the first time in their junior year and often retake it in the fall of their senior year.

Strategy

It is easy to be intimidated by the SAT. It is almost four hours long and a crucial part of the college admissions process. Entelechy’s proven SAT prep curriculum is designed to give you the skills you need to achieve proficiency. Each week, you will take a full-length practice exam under realistic testing conditions, along with classes focusing on Reading and Writing and Language.

SAT Mock Test

Signing up to take our mock SAT test is a stress-free way to determine your strengths and weaknesses on the SAT. Our experienced staff will help you prepare for the SAT by administering a practice SAT test. Learn the official layout of the exam and force yourself to follow the strict time limitation of the test. This is a rigorous routine that will exhaust you on your first try. However, you will start to feel more and more comfortable with the test as you continue practicing.

We have to face the simple truth that to do well on this grueling test, we will need to practice. In fact, the best way to prepare for the SAT is to practice on real questions from the past SAT tests, and pay close attention to the style and tone of the tests. Just like it is for sports and music, the key to success for the SAT is repetition and practice. Students can develop impressive levels of expertise through hard work and practice. Effort and persistence are the keys to success.

Our SAT courses provide live instruction, homework review, and customized recommendations based on practice test performance—all aimed at helping students score higher. Students spend two weeks working on the math, critical reading, and writing components of the SAT. Upon successful completion, students will possess the tools necessary to complete the SAT to the best of their ability.


ACT

Objective

The ACT is an entrance exam used by most colleges and universities to make admissions decisions. It is a multiple-choice, pencil-and-paper test administered by ACT, Inc. The purpose of the ACT test is to measure a high school student’s readiness for college, and provide colleges with one common data point that can be used to compare all applicants.

Breakdown

The test consists of four multiple-choice tests covering the subjects of English, Mathematics, Reading, and Science, and an optional Writing section. Students are given 3 hours and 35 minutes to complete the entire ACT, including the Writing section.


Timeline

The ACT is offered six times each year in September, October, December, February, April, and June. Students of all ages are eligible to take the ACT. Many students take the ACT in their junior year and often retake it in the fall of their senior year.

Strategy

While the ACT is meant to measure what you learn in high school, the test itself can trip up even the best students. You’ll need exceptional focus, excellent time-management skills, and a familiarity with the exam’s structure to really master it. And Entelechy's proven ACT prep programs are designed to give you all of the above. Each week, you’ll take a full-length practice ACT test under realistic testing conditions, along with dedicated classes focusing on each section of the test: English, Reading, and Writing.

We offer remote tutoring for learners who cannot make it to our physical location. Students get the same, high quality instruction at a time and location of their choice.


ISEE

The Independent School Entrance Examination (ISEE) is a newer independent high school admission test that is gaining rapid acceptance around the country. The exam is administered by the Educational Records Bureau.

The ISEE is offered at two levels. The middle level of the exam is given to candidates for grades 6, 7, and 8, and the upper level is given to candidates for grades 9 through 12. Because each level includes a range of ages and grade levels, scoring and percentile ranking are done separately for members of each grade group. The upper and middle levels of the exam differ chiefly in the difficulty of the questions and in the mathematical subjects covered.

The ISEE is a multiple-choice exam testing verbal ability, quantitative ability, reading comprehension, and mathematics achievement. ISEE also requires each applicant to write an essay. The ISEE is administered in five separately timed test sections. The time limit for each section is different, so all applicants take the tests in the same order. The ISEE does not include an experimental section; so every test section and question counts.
