Supporting Students on the SAT

Education at George Westinghouse Career and Technical Education High School is designed to meet the needs of each student. The school's mission is to encourage and enable every student to graduate on time with viable college and career options.

They decided to use Horizon Education’s SAT readiness course in order to grow student access to Colleges/Universities. The program equipped 3 teachers with the tools and resources to effectively integrate SAT content and strategies into existing curricula, and/or to run a stand-alone SAT readiness course. Total score improvement exceeded the schools expectations. 

"I don’t think we could have achieved our scores anywhere as close to last year’s level if it weren’t for the support we received from you and your team.  I want to thank you for that support and look forward to our continued partnership."  Joe Arzuaga, Principal
