While some students wile away their summer vacations, others can prepare for this fall's SAT test with the help of the local HK Community Fund.
The fund is a non-profit organization that serves the communities of Maplewood and South Orange, and pays for several community outreach programs, among them are scholarships and the SAT workshop.
The cost of the workshop is $25 (scholarships are available) for high school juniors and seniors who live in South Orange or Maplewood.
The students do not have to attend Columbia High School, but must otherwise be eligible to participate in the school district’s Free and Reduced Lunch program. In addition, this will be a six-week program and the student must commit to making every effort to complete it.
The instructor of this workshop is Peter Hynes. Hynes is a Fellowship Advisor and Director of the Ruth Sharkey Academic Resource Center of Seton Hall University. Prior to coming to Seton Hall University, he worked as an administrator and a teacher for The Princeton Review since 2005. He has worked extensively with teacher and tutors preparing high school students for college, as well as college students pursuing post-graduate degrees.
This workshop will begin on July 12 in the HK Foundations Center, 515 Valley Street Suite 130, Maplewood (close to CHS), and run for 6 weeks.
