Glendale plans SAT workshop

FLINTON – Statistics from the U.S. Census Bureau and the Department of Education have shown that for young adults ages 25 to 34 who worked full-time throughout a full year, a clear pattern reflects higher median earnings corresponding with higher levels of educational attainment.

In other words, young adults with bachelor’s degrees currently earn 85 percent more than adults who had not advanced beyond high school.

With higher education having an increased importance in reflected income, getting accepted into college is critical; however Glendale high school students’ SAT scores have been substandard compared with students in similar type schools.

Recognizing this need for student college preparedness, high school principal Gary Walstrom contacted the Glendale Education Foundation to see if they could sponsor an SAT Prep workshop for students. High school guidance counselor Kim Kozak contacted The Learning Lamp, which will provide a one-day seminar for sophomores, juniors or seniors at Glendale.

Richard W. Snyder II, executive director, an-nounced that the Glendale Education Foundation is funding an SAT Prep Workshop from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. April 12 at Glendale Junior-Senior High School. It is free for students in grades 10 through 12, with a maximum of 30 students.

It will involve expert training in both SAT Reading and SAT Mathematics, as well as general test-taking skills. In addition, students will receive a complimentary copy of the SAT study guide, as well as the opportunity to take a sample SAT exam ahead of the workshop. Lunch is also provided by the foundation at no cost.

Contact Kozak as soon as possible at kkozak@gsd1
