College Board to sponsor December 5 workshop
to help students and parents plan for college

BEAUFORT – The College Board will sponsor a free workshop next week for students and parents who want to learn more about planning for college and the free resources available to assist with that planning.

The 6 p.m. workshop on Thursday, Dec. 5, will be held in Bluffton High School’s Performing Art Center.  The College Board is best known for administering the SAT college entrance exam, the preliminary SAT (PSAT) and Advanced Placement exams through which high school students can earn free college course credits.

Topics to be covered at the free workshop will include:

  • Starting a college search – questions to ask and where to find information.
  • Preparing for the SAT – taking PSAT or Preliminary SAT, using PSAT score reports and free personalized practice resources.
  • Building your academic transcript – selecting the right courses and how Advanced Placement (AP) courses fit into your plan.
  • Connecting to scholarships and other postsecondary opportunities – Student Search Service, College Board Opportunity Scholarships and more.

A similar event for students and parents, sponsored by the ACT college entrance exam, will be held at Battery Creek High in February.
