FMU to offer SAT Academy this summer to boost scores

Francis Marion University will once again offer an SAT Academy to students who want to improve their scores.

The sessions will be led 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.

Those who would like to attend can choose from session one scheduled for June 23-27 or the second session set for July 21-25.

Middle and high school students will gather on these days from 9 a.m. – noon in Lee Nursing Building’s Thomason Auditorium on the campus at a cost of $149 for rising 7th and 8th graders and $199 for rising 9th-12th grade students.

The SAT Academy is offered to students who:

·         Plan to take the PSAT/SAT this year,

·         Have taken the PSAT/SAT and want to improve their score, or

·         Qualify as a Duke TIP Scholar. (More than 200 of past participants have earned the designation as a Duke TIP Scholar.)
