SAT Prep Course

Dear Junior Class Parents/Guardians and Students:

During the school day on April 13th, 2021, the Sewanhaka Central High School District will be administering the SAT exam to all 11th grade students throughout the District.  Since many colleges require SAT scores for admission, we will again be offering an SAT Preparation course, however this year it will be “virtual.” Students will be meeting with their instructors via Google Meet. The course code and login information will be provided before the course begins. The course will concentrate on test format, specialized instruction in math, verbal and writing skills, as well as test-taking strategies.

Registration for the SAT Prep course will take place at each high school beginning the week of February 8th, 2021.  Registration is limited to a first come-first served basis. The cost per student is $150, which includes 4 hours per week of detailed instruction, plus all test preparation materials.  Students must supply their own calculator, highlighter, headphones, pens and pencils for the course and exam. The courses will begin the week of February 22, 2021 and run for six weeks, with breaks for school holidays.

Two Important Reminders:

1. Each school in the District organizes its own course schedule.

2. Students must register for the SAT exam on their own. Please see the Guidance Dept.

Registration will be February 8th - February 12th only. Registration forms may be returned by emailing a completed form to the finance clerk at your building (and CC: the liaison listed below), by having their child drop it off with the finance clerk in the main office, or by completing an online form HERE.. Payment can be sent in with your child and delivered to the finance clerk, through your Myschoolbucks account, or by mailing in a check to the finance clerk of your school.

Students qualifying for free or reduced lunch are eligible for tuition reductions.
