March 4, 2019

Teachers are now incorporating Khan Academy into their lesson plan.  The SAT is a test that scares many of its participants because it determines so many things, from scholarships to acceptance into colleges. Students may be so overwhelmed with nerves that they forget the useful tools that exist to help them. Some of these tools are just a push of a button away, free online help from websites like Khan Academy and College Board. At least one of  these websites we were introduced to you by your teachers.  The SAT is on March 6th, the deadline to apply for the exam is February 8th, scores will be reported on March 22, 2019.

Ways To Study

  • College Board- This is a website used to not only study for your SAT but also to sign up. The website  lets you search up top colleges of your choice.
