SAT prep course available for students

LIHUE — The Kauai North Shore Community Foundation and its education committee are offering a SAT prep course for high school students attending Kapaa High School and Kanuikapono Charter School.

The course is scheduled for Saturdays, Aug. 24 through Sept. 28, 10 a.m. to noon at the Anaina Hou Porter Pavilion classroom in Kilauea.

SAT Prep is a concentrated study guiding students through the reading comprehension, writing, and mathematics sections of the Scholastic Aptitude Test. David Mireles, a college counselor and teacher at Kapaa High School, will lead the course, assist with problem-solving, and provide test-taking hints that can save time and improve overall scores.

Thanks to grants from the North Shore Lions and the Rotary Club of Hanalei Bay, full scholarships are available to students with financial hardship. Deadline for the scholarship application is Aug. 15.

The program can accommodate 20 students. Enrollment deadline is Aug. 20; cost is $145 per student and includes materials. However, students need to bring their laptops, notebooks, and pens.

Noelle McHugh is the programs administrator for the Kauai North Shore Community Foundation education enrichment programs.

Founded in 2012, the Kauai North Shore Community Foundation is a nonprofit connecting donors and volunteers to community needs and local charitable projects. The Foundation focuses on education and culture, youth and seniors, health and wellness, and public spaces.

Major initiatives include “Let’s Build A School” for a tuition-free charter school on the North Shore, annual Ohana Fit Fest 5K/10K obstacle trail run, the North Shore Dog Park, and annual scholarships to North Shore students attending Kauai Community College.
