Another Successful Season of Let’s Get Ready
As the Fall 2017 Let’s Get Ready SAT Prep Program at Long Island City High School came to a close, many students expressed their gratitude and much excitement as they successfully completed the program. The closing celebration on November 29th, 2017 marked the completion of the program, but more importantly, the beginning of a college-focused journey for juniors taking the SAT for the first time. Let’s Get Ready site directors led panel discussions about college life and admissions. The celebration closed with a financial aid presentation, followed by each student receiving certificates of completion and gifts to prepare them for the upcoming SAT exam.
Ms. Anita Williams, College and Career Success Coordinator at Long Island City High School spoke to Kani about her experience during the 10-week program. Kani participated in the program to score higher on the SAT. She first expected the program to solely focus on preparing for the exam but quickly realized the program “actually prepared [her] for college readiness. [They] discussed topics like financial aid, college applications, college essays and more.” The time management skills she gained from the
program carry over into homework assigned by her teachers. In addition to learning how to manage time wisely, Kani appreciated the chance to meet other LICHS students and LGR’s college student coaches, mentioning she would without a doubt participate again the program next Fall.
