Say Yes to Education, 100 Black Men and Syracuse University Offer Free SAT Prep

     Published on   Tagged under:    District News   

Say Yes to Education, 100 Black Men and Syracuse University have helped more than 190 local students, many of them from the Syracuse City School District, with free SAT prep classes this school year.

In sessions that run Saturdays, from 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m., students have spent time learning best practices for taking the SAT from 30 tutors and six instructors.

The classes include free breakfast and lunch. All participants take a proctored practice test and are given a free SAT study guide book. 

The tutors and instructors work to teach test-taking strategies and to review all of the content on the SAT, including mathematics, writing and critical reading. 

There are two more sessions available for students. Session III runs from Feb. 8 to March 1 and is for students taking the March 8 exam. Registration for that session runs through Feb. 1.

Session IV runs from April 5 to April 26 and is for students taking the May 3 exam. Registration for that session runs through March 29.

Students who register for and take the classes, which are held at Bowne Hall on the SU campus, are not registered for the SAT. That registration must be completed separately by the student and is not part of the SAT prep class registration process.

The classes are open to all students, even those outside of the Syracuse City School District. To register, go to www.sayyessyracuse.org and click on "High School'' or register directly at bit.ly/SATsaturdaysSU. 

Students can also call 315-446-4259 to register or get further information.
