In South Florida specifically the Miami/Ft. Lauderdale area more than 60 local students can now get free help with SAT/ACT Prep thanks to the local business MindWorks Prep.
The scholarships are available to students from low-income families who might not otherwise be able to afford the crucial preparation for the most important test needed to get into college.
According to studies, students from low-income families score significantly lower on the SAT/ACT, limiting their chances to get into a quality college.
The College Board now “agrees” that taking an SAT prep course can increase a test takers score, in some cases by as much as 200 points.
Andrea Catsicas who is the owner of MindWorks Prep based in Coral Springs (www.mindworksprep.com), is offering the $10,000 in scholarships because she “believes in education, SAT/ACT Prep and that the promise of a bright future should be available to all.”
