Sonoma County Library will offer free 5-hour SAT Intensive prep classes during September and October 2019 for high school juniors who will be taking the Scholastic Aptitude Test (SAT). These classes are part of Sonoma County Library’s Path to College series that supports college-bound high school students and their families. With these classes, the Library seeks to meet the needs of students through all stages of the college preparation and application process.
Registration for SAT Intensive prep classes is required and begins on Saturday, August 10, 2019. Students or parents can pick up registration forms at the four libraries where the class will be offered: Roseland Community Library, Sebastopol Library, Sonoma Valley Library, and Petaluma Library. Registration is limited to high school juniors.
The SAT Intensive prep class includes study and review of problematic areas of all sections of the SAT including the essay. Students are provided with an individual copy of The Official SAT Prep Guide for use in the class and extended study at home. The class comprises two parts of 2½ hours each; students must attend both parts.
The course is offered at each of the following locations, dates & times:

A majority of past SAT Intensive participants have strongly agreed that they feel better prepared for the SAT test format, directions, and scoring, and would recommend the class to a friend.

I would really appreciate if the library to provide more of these services since there is such a great need for this information.”
