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.

74% of the
students scored higher on their SAT than their diagnostic test.
up to 520 points higher than on their diagnostic test. The average
score increase from the diagnostic test to the SAT was 95 points.
2400's goal is to make a

preparation course to help our 2009 graduates.
