Starting in the fall of 2014 Conestoga HS started to offer a course on SAT Strategies. It's offered 2 days/cycle for a semester. There is a fee for this course, but if you think you need assistance covering the cost of this fee, then you just need to talk with your counselor. This is a GREAT opportunity to get some great tips on how to ace the SAT!! Please check to see if you can get it in your schedule!
If you don't have room in your schedule for the class - there are other options! At various times throughout the year the local Intermediate Unit runs a PSAT/SAT Verbal & Math Prep Course at CHS once a week after school and again in the evening. There are separate sessions for math or verbal reviews. There are fees for these courses as well, but again your counselor can help get special funding if needed. Go to https://www.regonline.com/SATPrep to register and get more information.
