PowerPrepping For The Test

Written by Garden City Life Staff, Friday, 03 October 2014 00:00

PowerPrep has once again announced that it will again be offering its comprehensive SAT Course at Garden City High School. The course is open to all high school juniors who are residents of the Garden City School District, whether or not they attend Garden City High School.

PowerPrep is offering this course at a savings of $650 off its regular tuition. It is important to note that this is not a course specially developed or administered by the district. Rather it is PowerPrep’s regular course that, despite the greatly-reduced tuition, has not been abbreviated or watered-down in any way. Except for the location of the classes, this course is identical to the Comprehensive SAT Course that PowerPrep has offered for more than 15 years––the course that has helped thousands of students raise their scores by an average of more than 200 points. In fact, of the students who took this course at Garden City High School in 2012, 2013, and 2014 more than 25 percent went up over 250 points and 10 percent went up over 300 points.
