Apex College & Sat Prep
We deliver possibilities to underserved Asian and immigrant youth from low income families in NYC.
This program offers college prep, SAT prep, and scholarship awards.
The College Preparation Program equips students with appropriate resources and tools through a series of educational workshops. Workshop topics include the college application process, writing an effective personal statement, financial aid and scholarships, and career development.
The SAT Preparation Program helps students prepare for the standardized college entrance examination by building skills and confidence in subject knowledge and test-taking strategies. The program consists of instruction and diagnostic exams. Classes are offered at a low-cost fee of $120 to New York City high school students. The fee covers eight instructional sessions, two professionally scored practice tests, and SAT Prep books and materials.
The Apex Outstanding Student Scholarship Awards are given annually to high school seniors who have demonstrated excellence not only in academics, but also in community service. Applicants must demonstrate financial need, have a minimum ‘B’ grade average and be currently participating or have participated in one or more Apex programs. Awards are used toward college tuition and/or related expenses.
