Edupath and the San Francisco Public Library are partnering to bring you free SAT & ACT prep classes, taught by veteran instructors and tailored to your individual goals. Classes will combine live instruction with Edupath's College Passport SAT & ACT, free mobile apps that help students find colleges, get SAT & ACT prep, and manage their college applications right from their iPhone or iPad.

  • Workshops are free and priority registration to high school juniors. There is a limit of 25 students per class.
  • The registration system allows students to sign up for one class only. Once a workshop assignment has been made, students may only switch to another workshop if space is available.
  • Space permitting, students can join a two or four class series at any point, but we do ask that you make a commitment to attend all of the classes in a series.
  • Please ensure at least basic familiarity with the SAT or ACT by downloading either app prior to the first day of class.
  • There will be about two hours of homework between classes. Students who complete the homework and participate in class achieve noticeably higher score improvements.

Register below for the following classes:

  • 10 hour SAT or ACT Intensive - You'll learn test strategy to help you score high even when you don't know the answer, how to tackle the toughest trick questions with aplomb, and how to put it all in context with your college goals.This class will take place over four weeks leading up to an actual SAT/ACT administration.
