“Success needs no alibi”

—  WHO WE ARE  —


ZISD, a Kaplan Certified Education Provider (third in Africa and first in Southern Africa), is offering a rigorous bespoke ten-week SAT prep course to current high school students and school leavers to enable them to gain access to higher learning institutions around the world.



—  WHY WE DO IT  —

The SAT is a globally recognized college admission test that lets students show colleges what they know and how well they can apply that knowledge. It tests students’ skills and knowledge in Mathematics, Reading and Writing. The SAT is a 3-hour long test, plus an additional 50 minutes for the optional essay. It is divided into two sections: (i) Reading and Writing and Language, (ii) Math, and is marked out of a total of 1600 (800 for each section). The SAT is taken by more than a million students annually and is accepted by virtually all colleges and universities in the US as a form of an entrance exam. There are numerous institutions in the U.S and Canada offering full-tuition scholarships to international students. These scholarships and financial aid grants are awarded based on either merit (test scores and academic performance in school), demonstrated need (family income and resources) or sporting performance.



—  how WE DO IT  —

Students are required to take a diagnostic test at the commencement of the course to enable us to perform student assessments. The prep course is then tailored to the student needs with the option of online or on-premise classes. Students enrolled in the ZISD prep course have unlimited access to a myriad of practice resources and books. In addition to us being a test preparation centre, we take a holistic approach by offering application guidance which graduates us to a college prep centre. Students are aided not only in their academics but their sporting endeavours. As an institution, ZISD helps exposed its students to a variety of extra-curricular activities that present them as more viable candidates to their desired schools with projects such as Zambia Robotics.
