SAT prep; class selection

Starting soon, Central Catholic will begin offering its SAT prep classes for seniors and juniors.

One class available is for the English and reading sections of the SAT and another for the math section of the test.

The classes will run five consecutive Saturdays Jan. 25 through Feb. 22. These classes are highly recommended for any student who plans to take the SAT, especially because the classes cover topics with which a student may not be familiar.

There is a cost for each class and they can be taken separately or together.
