Challenge

Maria deserved the best—she worked hard and earned straight A’s—but no one from Maria’s high school ever attends a top college. When we met Maria, she was a student government leader, a Varsity athlete, and well liked by her teachers. But she was frightened of the SAT, and her previous scores showed it. During our five week SAT preparation program, Maria raised her SAT score 240 points, bringing her within range of the averages at UCLA, where she is currently a freshman.

Solution

SEE has created a 5-week, 42-hour program and curriculum it carries out through partnerships with existing college preparation programs that lack the resources to fully prepare their students for college.

Long-Term Impact

At a cost of just over $200 per student, our SAT preparation programs eliminate more than 75% of the gap between the richest and poorest students and prove, once and for all, that all students can succeed if given the opportunity.
