FMU to offer SAT Academy, Jan. 11, 18

Francis Marion University will once again offer an SAT Academy to students who want to improve their scores on Jan. 11 and 18.                                          

Qualifying junior high and high school students will gather on these two consecutive Saturdays from 9 a.m. – 1 p.m. to be taught by Bill McKenzie, M.S., a full-time professional SAT tutor, a curriculum that is 100% test based. McKenzie teaches private lessons, presents in-school workshops and summer camps. He earned his Ed.D. from the University of Georgia in 1977 and has been involved with SAT training for more than 10 years.

The Academy will be held in Room 137 of Lee Nursing Building on the campus at a cost of $100.

The SAT Academy is offered to the following students:

  • Any high school student planning to take the PSAT/SAT this year.
  • Any high school student who has taken the PSAT/SAT and wants to improve their score.
  • Any rising 7th grade student wanting to qualify as a Duke TIP Scholar. (More than 200 of past participants have earned the designation as a Duke TIP Scholar.)
  • Any student entering the 8th grade who has qualified as a Duke TIP Scholar.
