“As a Hispanic student who wants to give a lot to this country and to have better opportunities, I want to thank you very much for having chosen me to be part of this program. I am very happy to tell you that I will attend to each session and that I will do everything I can to prepare for the SAT and get a good score. Thank you a lot!”

“The STEPS program has helped me out in many ways. It gave me a mentor who has been through what I’m going through and is willing to help me achieve my goal. He also taught me how to set up my own goals and is a perfect example of success. The Kaplan course taught me various strategies that have raised my SAT score over 120 points. If it wasn’t for the STEPS Program, I would have gone into the SAT with no idea of what to expect. One thing the STEPS Program can do to make the experience better is make the classes smaller so each student can get more help.”

-E. Franco, [School]
