The cost to adopt one student is $350 and provides one year of online test prep, a graphing calculator and a test prep mentor. 

Gilberlyn L.

My name is Gilberlyn. In school my favorite subjects are English and Spanish. I'm not sure what I want to do, but I want to be someone great so I need to do well on the SATs and get into a good college. I am a Youth Community Organizer in my community. I have been working on a project that surveys 1,000 high schools to see how people of different cultures are treated by other students and their teachers. We are also working on a project about students who get bullied.

I am Nancy and I am a junior this year. I think this program is a great opportunity for me to prep for the SATs and prepare for college. With this study-a-thon, I can be more prepared than ever before! I believe that I can study for the exam, get into college, and have a great career if I receive this little bit of help.
