Penn State York is offering a late spring and a summer SAT strategy course and there is still time to get registered.  The late spring course is offered on four Saturdays, May 1, 8, 15 and 22, while the summer course is offered Tuesday through Saturday, August 4-7, from 8:30 a.m. to 12:45 p.m.  Both sessions are offered via Zoom.

Being prepared is the key to successfully taking the SAT, and Penn State York is committed to providing an opportunity for students to review key concepts for the SAT exam. This course is designed for students taking the SAT for the first time or for those who want to try and increase their scores.

Participants will be able to ask questions and receive immediate answers, interact with other students, and prepare with an experienced, live instructor.

SAT exam dates for 2021 are Saturday, May 8 and June 5. Other possible dates for 2021-22 include Aug. 28, Oct. 2, Nov. 6, Dec. 4, 2021, and March 12, May 7, and June 4, 2022.

There is a good deal that rides on student’s scores, namely admission to top schools and scholarships.

Cost for the course is $275. Students must purchase the textbook, “College Board: The Official SAT Study Guide," prior to the start of class. It is recommended that students considering this course have completed at least two years of high school algebra.
