FREE SAT Tutoring for Duke TIP & PSAT/FL Scholarships

Since Duke TIP and the Florida Scholarships require high SAT scores, the (proposed) charter school plans to provide FREE SAT tutoring during the MS and HS years, with a limit of 1 semester of SAT tutoring each for MS and HS respectively.

Our goal is to:

  • help every eligible MS student earn Duke TIP state recognition,
  • help every HS student earn an SAT score that will qualify for college admission, with at least 75% of our HS students earning SAT scores that meet the Florida Medallion Scholarship 1020 SAT score or Florida Academic Scholarship 1280 SAT Score thresholds.
