Paul Cuffee Juniors Take College Prep Seriously

In May, juniors took the second step on the pathway towards college admissions. With October’s PSATs under their belts, one third of the junior class committed to a six-week Saturday SAT prep course culminating with a number of them taking the SATs for the first time this month at Classical High School. Many will re-take the test in June to hopefully improve their scores in time for college applications in the fall.
