SAT Seminar – $600 course, free of charge!
Run by IVY Prep on Tuesdays and Thursdays during regular seminar times, this class will help students prepare for the SAT test. It is highly encouraged that all students take a test prep course at some point sophomore or junior year prior to taking the ACT or SAT. There will be optional full-length practice test sessions for this seminar as well. Parents, if you would like to sign your student up for this course (recommended for sophomores and juniors), please tell your student that you are doing so, and email Dr. Weatherford at firstname.lastname@example.org with their full name and grade level. We only want students who want to be in this class and are committed to learning, as the course is expensive for the school to run and we don’t want to waste any spots on kids whose parents have forced them to be there if you know what we mean!
