The company eKnowledge and its partners are continuing to offer students and families in Hawaii free $200 SAT or ACT prep programs via a volunteer benefit program funded by NFL and MLB athletes and more than 100 corporations, foundations and not-for-profit organizations. A student is only charged $17.55 for the cost of materials and shipping.
In 2005, eKnowledge formed The SAT/ACT Donation Project with support from the athletes and partnerships with the various entities.
“To date, the project has provided over 200,000 SAT/ACT Prep Programs valued over $42 million at no profit to the company,” said a company spokesman.
“This is a truly amazing opportunity for our student athletes and their families. Every student who wants to attend college must complete the SAT or ACT test, so these prep programs are invaluable,” said B. Elliot Hopkins of the National Federation of State High School Associations.
“Our biggest obstacle has been simply getting the word out to parents and students … about the SAT/ACT Project.”
The donated PowerPrep Programs (DVD format) contain 170 video lessons, hundreds of practice questions with detailed explanations, 18 quizzes and more than 40 hours of classwork.
Parents and high school students may obtain their copy of the SAT or ACT PowerPreptm Program at www.eKnowledge.com/HTH.
The SAT/ACT Donation Project covers 100 percent of the $200 retail cost. There is only the nominal per student fee for shipping, student support and materials.
