The College Board and ACT, Inc. have suspended their administration of the SAT and ACT until the summer in response to COVID-19, however, this is a great time to practice for these tests to be prepared when they resume.
Applerouth Tutoring Services will be holding a Mock SAT and ACT on April 11th online to benefit the Edison PTSA ($15). You will be able to take a full-length mock exam with a proctor and fellow Edison students online at home.
Our next PTSA meeting is Tuesday, April 21 at 7:00 pm via conference call. Stay tuned for the conference call number and webinar link.
Grab your dinner and join us online.
We hope to hear you soon!
