The following is a press release from the office of Councilman Ceasar Mitchell.
Please join Atlanta City Council President Ceasar C. Mitchell for the 15th Semi-Annual College Prep Series (CPS) on Saturday, October 19th from 8:00 a.m. until noon at Benjamin E. Mays High School, 3450 Benjamin E. Mays Drive, S.W.
The CPS offers students a free opportunity to be exposed to college
entrance exams in a simulated testing environment.
Mitchell is partnering with The Princeton Review to administer the
practice college entrance exams. Through this partnership, students have
an opportunity to take the Princeton Review Assessment (PRA), an
assessment that will help them determine whether they would test better
on the ACT or the SAT. The format of the PSAT will remain the same.
“I am proud of the continued enhancements we are making to the College
Prep Series,” said Council President Mitchell. “We want the College Prep
Series to be an on-going source of relevant and timely college
preparatory information for our youth and their families.”
The “scores back" session is scheduled for Tuesday, October 29 from 6:30 until 8:00 p.m. in the Atlanta City Hall atrium, 55 Trinity Avenue, Atlanta, Georgia 30303.
The Council President is also planning for some exciting enhancements
and additions to the 2013 series, including drawings for a FREE SAT/ACT
preparation class, and two sets of Princeton Review test preparation and
college guide books. The drawings will be held during the October 29th “scores back” session and students must be present to win.
Students may register by calling 1-800-2Review (273-8439), choosing
Option 1 – and asking to register for the College Prep Series event at
Benjamin E. Mays High School in Atlanta, GA. Students may also register

The College Prep Series is offered twice a year, in the fall and spring,
to help students reach their higher education goals. The series exposes
students to college entrance exams in a simulated test environment and
provides feedback to them on their performance. Interested students are
then connected with the resources needed to help improve their scores.
