Bar Harbor, Maine – May 20, 2011 –

 

The dog days of summer are a time for relaxation, family gatherings, recreation, and … SAT preparation?

 

John Bapst Memorial High School 2010 graduate and Duke University sophomore Lucas Hubbard is committed to this mentality.  As a branch manager for Revolution Prep’s Ivy Insiders program, Hubbard is looking to boost the test scores of students from Bar Harbor to Bangor and beyond.  

 

Revolution Prep’s program improves students’ SAT scores by an average of 254 points—on the 2400-point scale—as well as providing an average 4.4 point boost on the 36-point ACT.

 

Additionally, Revolution Prep offers need-based scholarships for students, allowing them to take the 3-week classroom program or various tutoring packages at reduced or no cost. 

 

“The social mission of Revolution Prep is simple,” said Hubbard.  “We want to make test preparation available to all students.  And I’m excited to bring our test prep curriculum to Maine, where the SAT is mandatory for all juniors and is so important for the college admissions process.”

 

The Ivy Insiders program features branch managers in 47 states across the country, and these managers are all undergraduates at premier academic institutions. 

 

For those interested in any of the programs offered, or just want a head start on beating the SAT next year, a free SAT practice exam will be given Saturday, June 4th, at 9 A.M at an area high school to be announced.
