Varsity Assist provides academic support, tutoring, and test prep (Regents/SAT/ACT ) to student-athletes who participate on teams at their high school. The program, which takes place in the partner school’s facilities, was piloted in partnership in 2013 and has resulted in 100% passing scores on statewide tests.
