SAT Prep Courses
The Glenelg Boosters Club has one SAT Prep Course left at Glenelg High this school year. This course is designed to prepare students for the upcoming SAT test that will be held at Glenelg High. It will be taught by GHS staff. The math sessions cover expanded topics from college preparatory math. The verbal sessions will help increase reading comprehension and help prepare for the writing portion with emphasis on grammar and sentence structure, plus opportunities to practice the essay.
This course will provide five weeks of preparation prior to SAT testing on June 2, 2018. Students may elect to take both the math and verbal SAT Prep Courses or simply choose one. The SAT Prep Classes will be held in the Media Center from 6-8 p.m. The math course will be taught by Mr. James McVicker, GHS math teacher. The verbal course will be taught by Ms. Leila Chawkat, GHS G/T Research teacher. The cost for math and verbal SAT Prep Courses is $250. Individual math or verbal sessions can be taken for $125 each.

We are collecting all college scholarship amounts that were offered to your student even if they are not attending that college. In addition, if scholarships that were offered are renewable for four years, please include the total amount that will be awarded over the entire four years. Thank you for your help with this request.
