The FEF’s partnership with The College Board was formed to enable the FEF to provide supplemental, community-based learning experiences for Florida middle and high school students. Through SAT strategies courses and summer intensive pre-college programs, students improve skills in mathematics, reading, science, and writing; prepare for standardized tests; and enhance their eligibility for acceptance into college.  Since 2001, over 6,500 students have taken FEF SAT strategies courses, and 2,000 have completed FEF intensive summer pre-college programs.  
SAT STRATEGIES COURSES

The College Board has trained our teachers to offer courses to prepare students for the SAT.


Make sure your child takes this course!

Since 2001, the FEF has offered SAT preparation courses at our Centers of Excellence and at churches and community venues around the State from Tallahassee to Fort Myers, using The College Board's SAT materials.

We now also offer the courses online for high school students, in addition to on-one-one Homework Help for middle school students, both  in our virtual classroom.

For more information on the FEF's SAT Preparation courses, or to offer a course at your church or for your community organization,  call Lyra Logan @ (813) 272-2772.
