Councilmember Eric Ulrich announces the successful results of the Kaplan SAT prep courses he funded.

Councilmember Eric Ulrich was joined by the principals of Robert H. Goddard and John Adam high Schools, local students and Kaplan representatives recently to announce the results of SAT prep courses funded by the councilmember.

Ulrich provided $9,000 each to six local high schools which allowed 25 students to attend free Saturday morning Kaplan SAT prep classes.

The classes raised the student’ practice scores from 1232 to 1316 over the course of the class with each subject area – math, critical reading and writing – seeing a bump.

“Before taking part in the course, I was definitely unprepared and nervous about taking the test. I felt much more confident as a result of the practice work, and there was no way I was going to reach my goal without the program,” said Goddard senior Sharon Groenow,

“Kaplan has a proven track record of success in preparing students for the SAT and ACT exams,” said Ulrich. “By giving parents and students the chance to receive the best SAT prep available in the most convenient location, we are helping our young people gain admission to the college of their dreams.”

The schools that took part in the classes were Scholar’s Academy, Beach Channel, Channel View, Franklin K. Lane, Goddard and John Adams.
