All Juniors will be taking the SAT on April 9th, 2019. Morton High School will be offering a review for this assessment in late March. This review is designed to prepare Junior students for the SAT.  These sessions are from 6:00 - 9:00 p.m. on March 25, March 27, and April 1. Each session will have a focus - reading, writing, language, SAT essay, and math. The cost for all 3 nights is $75. This covers the book, materials, and instructors.

 

Extracurricular activities and/or work often conflict with the start times of these sessions. Please do not let this prevent you from registering if you see a need for the classes.  Students are allowed in late due to these circumstances.

 

Registration is a 2 step process: 1) Make your payment through EFUNDS  2) Complete the google form

 

The registration process must be completed before Thursday, February 7th. This firm deadline ensures book delivery and hiring of personnel for the first session.
