College Planning

 

College Prep @ the Library

There are changes coming to the SAT - the PSAT will change first in the fall of 2015, and the SAT will follow in the spring of 2016. The revised PSAT will serve as a preview for the revised SAT.  The test change will impact students in the Class of 2017. If you are in the class of 2014, 2015, or 2016, these changes will not impact you.  Find out more information about these changes from Kaplan's SAT Resource Center

Find information on upcoming Kaplan Free Online Events and check out Kaplan's College Planning Resources.
