KAPLAN: SAT/ACT PRACTICE WITH A PURPOSE
College admissions testing will be here before you know it, and Kaplan now has two programs to share that may make it easier for students. Kaplan has just launched an exciting program called Practice with a Purpose. By visiting their free online practice resource hub, students can take a free pop quiz, 20-minute workout, and a full proctored practice test to help prepare for upcoming SAT or ACT exams. Students can sign up and take all three if they’d like, and each test or quiz a student signs up for, will help Kaplan to donate Test Prep scholarships to students in need.
Kaplan has also partnered with the Boys & Girls Clubs of America, and is aiming for a goal of 100 scholarships* donated, which is a value of up to $125,000. Check out the landing page here: http://ktp.events/southjersey
