The team at Everydae has been hard at work at home during quarantine. First thing’s first, we want to say thank you to all of the educators and medical workers on the front lines of this pandemic! And thank you to our awesome students and parents who have been studying for the SAT with us these last few months.

The college admissions scandal (aka Operation Varsity Blues) shed light on an academic epidemic. And it’s not cheating celebrities or corrupt coaches. It’s bigger than that.
60% of high school students we surveyed this summer say they have anxiety around the SAT.
