State Legislators Gift PrepMe’s ACT & SAT Test Prep to High School Students in Their District

Legislators support online education by providing students the opportunity to prepare for college with PrepMe’s Local Hero Program.


Chicago, IL -- (ReleaseWire) -- 12/16/2009 -- With test prep and after school programs falling victim to school budget cuts, PrepMe created a special program for state legislators to help their high school districts prepare for college. Thanks to state legislators’ commitment to advocating post-secondary education and participation in PrepMe’s “Be a Local Hero” program, high school students across the nation received free college test prep.

PrepMe is an education company offering personalized online curriculum aligned to ACT’s & SAT’s respective college readiness and guidelines and helps students prepare for the skills tested on college entrance exams. Only PrepMe students can boast 5 point score improvements on the ACT and 305 points on the SAT.

Through the “Be a Local Hero” program, high school students have four months access to online personalized weekly schedules comprised of over 150 lessons and quizzes and four full ACT or SAT tests. In order for students to have received this free gift, state legislators submitted their commitment on their high school’s behalf. Excited and eager to provide their school district with college test prep when so many programs had been cut due to budget restraints, legislators flooded PrepMe with written requests to help their high schools. These legislators are truly the local heroes of their districts.
