Juniors attending The City’s public high schools can receive free online SAT and ACT test preparation classes from Kaplan Test Prep if they sign up for the courses this month, the company has announced.
Students “simply need to contact their college counselors for an access code” in order to receive the free online courses, the company said.
Kaplan’s donation comes as part of the grand opening Thursday of its new center at 149 Montgomery St., the company said.
Kaplan was previously located at 50 First St.
Due to budget cuts, it is becoming more difficult for students to gain acceptance into the state’s UC and CSU system, so The City’s high school students can use all the help they can get, education leaders said.
“Now more than ever, it’s essential that the schools connect with companies to support our students,” Zoe Duskin, Assistant Principal at Galileo Academy of Science and Technology, said in a statement.
