In addition to submitting a completed application, the applicant must also submit a resume, certified transcript, and an optional reference letter.  Applications will be accepted until Friday, May 26, 2017.  Additional information about the program and to apply online, visit http://www.govstemscholars.com/.  
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 PurposeBy 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.
If you’d like to help Kaplan reach their goal, feel free to share this program with your families through Naviance or social media using the blurbs below:

PSAT/NMSQT® Score Report Night was held on Wednesday, January 4, 2017 at 6:30 pm in the auditorium of EHS.  All students who took the October, 2016 PSAT/NMSQT® and their parents/guardians were encouraged to attend this event.  PSAT/NMSQT® score reports and test booklets were returned during this time and a review of the student score report took place. Information was also provided on how students could access correct answers and explanations to all PSAT/NMSQT® test questions on-line and how to prepare for the SAT® and improve their academic skills using Khan Academy®.  Score reports and booklets were returned on Friday, January 6, 2017 during homeroom to those students who were unable to attend the evening event.  Parents/guardians can contact their child's counselor if they have any questions about the PSAT/NMSQT® score report.  Click here for more information.

In December of 2013, the administrator of the SAT®, the College Board, announced that revisions to the SAT will be implemented in the spring of 2016.  As with previous test revisions, the PSAT changed first in the fall of 2015, and the SAT followed March 2016.  The revision is comprehensive, and there is no question that the SAT in March 2016 looked significantly different from the older version.  For complete details, visit the SAT Test Change Resource Center at www.kaptest.com/satchange.
