ATLANTA, Jan. 6, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- C2 Education (C2) the nation's fastest growing network of subject tutoring, SAT®, ACT® and PSAT® test prep and education support centers, will award $25,000 to qualifying high schools in nine states throughout the country.
C2 will join forces with area high schools to host new SAT practice tests in January. The tests will give students an opportunity to familiarize themselves with the redesigned SAT and accurately measure performance before taking the real test on March 5, 2016. Students that are not able to attend the test at their school will be permitted to take it at their local C2 center. The SAT has been revamped before, but the updated format and scoring system bring a considerable difference to the test. Standardized tests such as the SAT and ACT are often an important factor in acceptance to college, thus can cause anxiety to both students and parents.
In order to help ease student anxiety, as well as support area high schools, C2 will donate all proceeds from the events to the hosting high schools. The company will award $5,000 to the four schools whose students obtain the highest average score and randomly select five participating schools for a $1,000 donation. To qualify for a donation, the school must have at least 30 students participate on-site or at a C2 center during the month of January.
The company is known for conducting practice tests, but what may not be as widely known, is C2's philanthropic efforts to help improve the communities in which they serve. The January test events are part of the C2 Community Giveback Program, which offers programs for parents and students such as Complimentary Homework Help and College Roadmap Consultations as well as online webinars covering a variety of important academic topics.
