New York, NY (March 20, 2020) – With schools being closed, SAT administrations being cancelled or postponed, and college visits being postponed because of COVID-19, it’s a historically stressful time for high school students and their parents. To help make the college admissions process more manageable during this time, Kaplan Test Prep is providing students with free access for 30 days after signup to its SAT On Demand course.

This comprehensive online course taught by Kaplan experts provides students with instructional videos on test content and strategy; practice questions and explanations; and quizzes throughout each lesson, so they’ll always know if they’re on track. The instructors will also fill the lessons with words of motivation and encouragement and tips on how to stay balanced during this uncertain period.

“We want high school students and their parents to know that Kaplan is there for them during this time of great uncertainty. While we realize that the college admissions process is just one of many issues that families are juggling with and trying to make sense of right now, we hope that providing them with this free SAT prep course will give them one less thing to be uncertain about and provide them with peace of mind,” said Isaac Botier, senior director of college prep programs, Kaplan Test Prep. “As more and more families are affected by fallout from the COVID-19 pandemic, we want to help students and their families in the same way we’ve been successfully helping them for the past 80 plus years—by providing them with the quality resources they need to reach their educational goals.”
