KENOSHA, Wis., Dec. 17, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Herzing University, which has campuses in eight states, and Test Prep Seminars, one of the country's largest test preparation organizations, today announced a first-of-its-kind nationwide partnership. The multi-faceted preparation program will include tutoring for the SAT and ACT along with educational sessions for parents and teachers, beginning at select Herzing University campuses in early 2016.
The test prep partnership comes at a crucial time, as both the ACT and SAT are undergoing changes that take effect in the New Year. In particular, the SAT's biggest revamp in 30 years will debut March 2016.
"Students of all backgrounds deserve to be properly prepared for the standardized tests that play such a vital role in the college admissions process," said Herzing University President Renee Herzing. "We want to make sure they and their parents have the information they need to succeed."
The partnership offers high school students who work with Test Prep Seminars complimentary coursework from Herzing University worth college credits at Herzing's brick-and-mortar campuses or Herzing Online. Eventually, Herzing's 11 campuses will play host to Test Prep Seminars' regular, four-week training programs, as well as a college readiness seminar for parents.
"We're not only making sure that students are ready for these monumental tests, but also that parents, teachers and administrators have the tools to support them," said Paul Rauseo, Chief Operating Officer for Test Prep Seminars. "Together we're helping students identify knowledge gaps and providing robust and affordable test preparation."
A pilot of the four-week program will begin at Herzing's Kenosha campus in January 2016. After that, it will be expanded and rolled out at other campuses, beginning in Ohio in spring 2016.
