With Labor Day gone and school starting up again this week, back-to-school season is in full swing and for students getting ready for their final years in high school, that means considering their options for the college entrance exams.
Applerouth Tutoring Services, an Atlanta-based company that focuses on SAT and ACT test preparation, will be offering a free workshop at the 14th Street Y on September 20 to discuss the significant changes that will be made to the SAT this year, as well as a discussion about the differences between the SAT and ACT.
Stuy Town resident Nanette Ross, whose children both went to New York public schools, just sent her youngest kid to college but wanted to stay involved with education in the community.
“I’ve been involved with the public school system for 20 years, raising funds to rebuild schools, helping to build programming, playgrounds and technology,” she said. “Over time I became known to people in the community as a real advocate for public education. I’ve always felt strongly in public education, so I wanted to try and educate as many people as possible in the community about what is changing.”
