SAT Review

This spring all juniors will have the opportunity to take the SAT at school during the school day. We will be offering an SAT review at the high school on 3 evenings from 6-9 p.m. These will take place on March 6th (Monday), 13th (Monday), and 16th (Thursday). Each night will focus on a different portion of the test - Reading, Writing and Language, and Math. The cost is $80. This includes a book, materials, and 3 hours of instruction.

Registration is currently open through Efunds. The last day for registration is Feb. 6th. NO LATE REGISTRATION. This deadline is very firm because we must have time to order an obtain supplies. No refunds are offered for missed sessions. Also, there are no make-up sessions.

Each night, snacks are sold before we begin and during breaks. Students can arrive late from practices and leave early if needed.

Questions can be directed to Mrs. Holmgren @ [email protected]
