SAT Prep Pilot Kicks Off at Early College
April 5, 2012
One hundred and twenty 9th and 10th grade students will take part in an SAT Prep pilot program at Early College. Iglesia tutors will work with the group to prepare them for the SAT exam, which the students will take in their Junior year.
The current average SAT score in the Rochester City School District is 790. The minimum required for entry to a four-year school is 950. Most large schools require upwards of 1200 points for acceptance into their programs.
Typically the RCSD students do not receive adequate preparation and test-taking strategies to ensure success. We believe this program will change all that, and give the students the same advantages students in other districts have in preparation for the test.
The program began this week, and will continue through the end of the school year. This same cohort will be enrolled in the program again next year.
