Penn College Course to Help Prepare Students for SATs

Workforce Development & Continuing Education at Pennsylvania College of Technology is offering a course to help high school students better prepare for the standardized test used as an admissions tool by many institutions of higher learning.

The course will guide students toward success on the SAT through live instruction, self-paced learning and individual interaction with a professional instructor. The focus will be on math, English and reading, with an optional writing session available for those who wish to review and practice their college-ready skills with a Penn College faculty member.

Bruce A. Wehler, assistant professor of English-composition at Penn College – shown during a 2017 session – will again be among the instructors for a series of SAT Preparation classes beginning in March.
