Free Standardized Test Prep

According to a report released Monday, the average score for the state’s public, private and home school students fell for the fourth straight year.

To try and intercept this issue, the Atlanta City Council President Ceasar C. Mitchell and Kaplan are offering a free college entrance exam preparation series. This year is the programs 9th year.

This year Georgia saw its largest and most diverse group ever of graduating seniors take the SAT, the most widely used entrance exam for in-state colleges and universities. The SAT participation rate for the Georgia class of 2010 was 74 percent, ranking Georgia among the top 10 in the nation, state officials said. Approximately 44.6 percent were minority students, up from 35.0 percent in 2005 and 30.4 percent in 2000, according to an Atlanta Journal-Constitution report.

The College Prep Series, sponsored by Mitchell and Kaplan, is open to any middle, high school student and parents in the Atlanta area.  Since 2002, more than 3,500 students have participated.

The prep classes will take place on the following dates and locations:
