Students ranging from high school sophomores to seniors are encouraged to take advantage of the program. Participants in the 2009 Spring and Fall programs not only saw an increase in their college entrance exam scores, but learned test-taking tips and received free tutorials in lower-performing areas.

The “College Entrance Exam Prep Course” is an extension of the “Career Futures Initiative” started by Representative Barbara Mallory Caraway in 2008 with a job fair to provide paid summer internships for high school students. “The Career Futures Initiative” is public/private partnership designed to give students 16 years old and older first-hand knowledge and practical experience in the fields of math, science, technology, and social networking.
