Connecticut High School Supports College Bound Students

West Haven High School in Connecticut aims to engage students early in the college selection process and provide them the tools to achieve admittance.

Recognizing the growing importance of college admittance test scores, like the SAT and ACT, their impact on student college choice and reflection on the district, West Haven officials have decided to partially underwrite a prep course for students on March 28.

“Together with EdgePrepLIVE, West Haven High School is giving students the opportunity to have a flexible, individual tutoring experience without the overwhelming expenses and inconvenience of trying to fit it in to already busy schedules. We hope students and parents/guardians will realize the benefits of this program in relation to their SAT/ACT scores and this program will run for years to come”, said West Haven High School Guidance Counselor Danielle Marseglia.

The course, which will be offered the last Saturday in March at West Haven High School is offered through ACES (Area Cooperative Education Services), a Regional Educational Service Center (RESC) for twenty-five school districts in south central Connecticut, including West Haven.

Through ACES, West Haven High School will provide the EdgePrepLIVE SAT/ACT course to students at a substantially discounted rate. The course is provided to students in an online, virtual classroom. Students participate actively during the class with their live, certified instructor. After the class, students are provided with a custom 30-day curriculum plan. Students are coached by certified instructors during the curriculum period, where students take drills, view video explanations and take practice exams.

“We are thrilled to team with the West Haven School administration to provide our effective prep course to West Haven students at a rate underwritten by the school,” said EdgePrepLIVE founder Ryan Duques adding “West Haven has demonstrated their commitment to their students success by bringing on this college preparation course.”

West Haven High School students interested in taking the class on March 29 should contact their School Counselor if you have not received the EdgePrep Flyer in the mail or through Naviance.

EdgePrepLIVE, which was designed by Princeton University graduate Jessica Brondo, is offered through hundreds of high schools throughout the country. In Connecticut, the prep course is offered to all public high school students at a discounted rate. Students may register for the course through their RESC:
