COLLEGE TEST PREP WORKSHOP for PARENTS & HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS: WHAT’S THE RIGHT PLAN FOR YOU: ACT vs. SAT (Grades 9-12) 10:00 AM – 12:00 PM The nature of college entrance testing is changing more rapidly than ever. The SAT, once considered the gold standard of exams, recently launched a complete redesign, and the ACT, which has supplanted the SAT as the test of choice for US high school students, continues to make small changes to its format and content yearly. Amid a constantly shifting landscape, it can be difficult for parents and students to identify the best path to success. Chris Ajemian and his education company, CATES Tutoring, take pride in guiding families through the test prep process and specialize in understanding and addressing the important quantitative and qualitative factors behind testing. With almost 20 years of test prep experience, as well as the newest information on the SAT and ACT and how colleges now use them in the application process, Chris will advise parents on when and how to begin test prep, what to expect throughout the process, and how best to help students overcome common challenges that may prevent them from realizing their full potential. The Workshop will be held in the Hajjar STEM Center.
