Popular program returns to help high school students prepare for college entrance exams.  Registrations are now being accepted for the University of Pittsburgh at Johnstown SAT Super Series, an academic review for the SAT.  The SAT Super Series helps to remove the mystery behind the SAT exam and better prepares students for exam day.

Students are encouraged to enroll in the preliminary session being held from 6 to 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, September 12.  Participants in this session will complete an abbreviated version of the SAT to identify specific areas that may need attention in order to improve their scores.  All sessions are being taught by UPJ instructors.

The Mathematics Review will be held from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, September 15.  Michael Oravec, UPJ instructor of mathematics, will review arithmetic, algebra, geometry, probability and statistics, and data analysis.

The Writing and Critical Reading Review will be held from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday, September 22.  Dr. David Magill, UPJ assistant professor of English, will review the written essay, sentence completion, vocabulary, and critical reading.

Seating is limited for these sessions and early registration is suggested.  The cost is $159/series or $85/session.  An on-campus lunch will be provided for all participants at each Saturday session.
