Let the studying begin.

Students preparing for the college-entrance exam, SAT, may take advantage of tutoring and test prep starting this evening, courtesy of Educating Children of Color (ECOC). The Colorado nonprofit works to encourage all students to pursue higher education, to support teachers as they strive to be successful educators, and to educate parents on what it takes to be college ready and to hold their child’s school accountable.

SAT tutoring sessions are scheduled for 6:30 to 8 p.m. Tuesdays from Feb. 11 to April 7. Walk-ins to tonight’s pretest are welcome, said ECOC Executive Director Regina Walter.

Sessions will be held in the Tutt Library, 1021 N. Cascade Blvd., Room 323. They are designed to help young scholars prepare for the critical collegian exam, and participants are expected to be in attendance for all sessions except that of March 23 (spring break). Students and parents will be alerted about cancellations due to inclement weather via text and email by 2 p.m. the day of the session.

Awards will be given for perfect attendance, participation and the greatest increase in SAT score over the course of the program.

Students who have their own laptops are asked to bring them; those who do not have a system may be supplied with one.
