SFPL Teen Programs for September:

Free S.A.T. Prep Courses: Advance your score! Sign up for free classes at

(Word of Senior, Mollie vouches for the quality of the prep course. From my own experience, even if you don’t think you need help on the SAT test subjects (writing, critical reading, and math), Prep Programs teach you strategy. You learn how to set a time frame for yourself for which problems, which questions to skip, how many questions you can skip, little tricks to get you by the math section without doing any math (actually, though), the perfect formula for essay writing… The list goes on. Since this is free, you really don’t have anything to lose.)
