PROJECT 2400 Improves Student SAT Scores and College Opportunities

     PROJECT 2400 created in 2006, is a strategic partnership between the Cobb Chamber of Commerce and the Cobb County and Marietta City school districts to help enhance our students SAT scores. 
     Cobb County and Marietta City schools fare well compared to other systems in the U.S. and Georgia, however, many students lag behind or miss out on an opportunity to attend their college of choice due to low test scores.  
     Wanting to prepare our students in the best possible way for the test, which is now based on a score of 2400, the Cobb Chamber helped fund Project 2400 which provided an SAT preparation course to 273 deserving students in 16 schools.
2007 Project 2400 Results:

205 students took the Princeton Review’s diagnostic test and the SAT.

74% of the students scored higher on their SAT than their diagnostic test.  

Students scored up to 520 points higher than on their diagnostic test. The average score increase from the diagnostic test to the SAT was 95 points.

     PROJECT 2400 was well received and got excellent reviews from our educators. “Any increase is great and Project 2400 clearly made a difference,” says Leigh Colburn, principal of Marietta High School.  
      PROJECT 2400's goal is to make a difference for as many students as possible, extending the SAT preparation course to help our 2009 graduates.       
     McEachern High School fully supports this initiative and has replaced its own after-school SAT preparation program with this new program. To learn more about this program, contact Mrs. BettyJo Eldridge, Assistant Principal at McEachern High School, at 770-222-3710 x 225 or
bettyjo.eldridge@cobbk12.org. Spring classes have already started for the program and no additional courses are offered at this time.
