DOE offers free SAT prep to 11th & 12th graders

Last February the Department of Education offered the city’s 65,000 11th graders free access to an online SAT prep course through College Board.  The goal was to stem the tide of declining scores since 2008 by offering students the free course in time to prepare for the March, June, or October 2010 SAT exams.

With news that only 8000 11th graders took advantage of the free course last spring, the DOE is opening up the program to current 11th graders.   Free access expires in February 2011, so students will need to take advantage of it in the fall semester.

To register for the course, students will need to have an access code. All 12th graders should have received an access code last February.  If you never received one, or lost it, contact your school’s college office or guidance counselor for help.  If you have your code, register here.

Current 11th graders who are interested in getting a head start on  preparing for the spring 2011 SATs, should request an access code from their school.
