COVID-19 Academic Resource Center

High schoolers have been heavily affected by the coronavirus pandemic. Academically, students have experienced months of remote learning, canceled SAT and ACT test dates, disrupted extracurricular activities, changed college admissions policies, and more. Over the past few months, we’ve gotten lots of questions from both students and parents about how to handle these changes and how to stay on track for admission to dream colleges. To help, we’ve compiled resources here to help families navigate ongoing changes and keep students focused on their goals.
