Attention Students: Test Preparation Software

With test dates on the horizon, I wanted to remind students of the resources we have purchased for test preparation.  Test dates are as follows.  

SAT:      May 7 & June 4
ACT:     April 9 & June 11
AP:        First two weeks of May (Test prep. software includes: AP Language, AP Literature, 
              AP Chemistry, AP U.S. History & AP Environmental)

SAT, ACT & AP Test Prep Software for Students

Naviance Test Prep

We are always seeking  creative ways to best prepare students for college.  It is with this in mind we have invested in a test prep software program for all students to enjoy.  After testing several software test prep programs we settled on a Naviance product that helps prepare students for the SAT, ACT, and AP classes.    

Some schools have de-emphasized standardize tests scores or moved to a test optional or opt-out policy.  Generally speaking, however, four year colleges place a lot of importance on SAT and ACT scores.  We understand the desire to be prepared on test day and some students choose to take test preparation courses.  We decided to make an investment to provide students with the resources to help prepare them for the exam.  We will survey students at the conclusion of the year to determine if this is an investment worth continuing.  Below I have included a few resources.
