Project 2400 SAT Prep

Project 2400 SAT Program for Juniors

Do you need help raising your SAT Scores? The Cobb Schools Foundation and the Cobb County School District have partnered to create Project 2400! 

Pope is, once again, happy to participate in this fantastic program, which provides a SAT Prep course by The Princeton Review to high school Juniors (families only have to pay $25).  The program consists of 24 hours of instruction and 3 full-length diagnostic tests.  Courses will begin in late January/Early February and lead up to the May 4 SAT.  Courses will be taught at Pope every Wednesday during X-block from 2:15 – 4:15.  The 3 diagnostic tests are given on Saturdays, dates TBD.  

In order to have the chance to participate in this program, a parent/guardian and student MUST attend a mandatory informational meeting on Tuesday, Oct 23 at 7pm in the Pope Theater.  

Students will be chosen by lottery if more than 24 students express interest.  If selected to participate, students must pay the $25 fee and provide proof of registration for the May SAT to confirm his/her seat in the program.  Please note that, due to the overwhelming interest in this program, participation requires 100% attendance at every session and diagnostic test.  

Over the years, the average score increases from past Project 2400 classes on the practice tests (from Test 1 to Test 3) have been approximately 170 points! Students have improved 10-690 points.
