01-22-14: Free SAT exam workshop set for February 11-13
Posted on 01/22/2014

High school students in grades 10 through 12 are invited to a free workshop on February 11, 12 or 13 to prepare for the SAT exam.

 

The workshops will be held from 6 to 9:30 p.m. on February 11 at Emerald Ridge High, February 12 at Puyallup High, and February 13 at Rogers High.

The sessions on February 11 and 13 will present information on math, while the February 12 workshop will focus on reading and writing.

 

Students from those three comprehensive high schools, as well as those attending Walker High, may sign up for the math workshop, the reading and writing workshop, or both sections. 

 

Students interested in attending may register online or sign up at the high school counseling office where they plan to take the workshop, said Walker High School counselor David Rosdahl.

 

The workshops are sponsored by the school district in partnership with DeVry University’s Federal Way campus.

 

This is the first time the district and DeVry University have partnered to provide the workshops at no cost to students. Last year, an outside company administered the workshop and charged $89 per student, Rosdahl said.

 

The SAT is a standardized test for most college admissions in the United States and is intended to assess a student’s readiness for college. “High SAT scores can also open the door for scholarships, awards, and recognition,” Rosdahl said.

 

Students generally take the exam in grades 10-12 and can take the exam more than once. Preparation is key for taking the exam, which costs $51 each time it is taken, Rosdahl said.
