Ø  Students, when you receive your SAT results, make sure you take advantage of linking your results to Khan Academy for individualized practice.  Here is a short video with the 3 steps you must take to link them: linking their College Board and Khan Academy online accounts and unlocking their free, personalized SAT study plan.

Research shows that studying on Official SAT Practice for 20 hours is associated with an average score gain of 115 points from the PSAT/NMSQT to the SAT—nearly double the average score gain compared to students who don’t use Khan Academy.  See your counselor if you have any questions.
