CollegeSpring helps students from low-income backgrounds boost SAT scores, navigate the college admissions and financial aid processes, and confidently pursue college degrees because we believe that all students deserve the opportunity to choose a four-year college education. We partner with schools and community organizations to offer programs during the summer or school year. Our 80-hour SAT test preparation and college readiness programs include classroom courses led by professional teachers, small group tutoring and mentoring led by current undergraduates, and four full-length SAT practice tests. CollegeSpring students improve diagnostic SAT scores more than 180 points on average.
