From the Defense Activity for Non-Traditional Education Support (DANTES)
Children and relatives of service members can get free SAT and ACT preparation kits again this year, compliments of professional athletes and the testing company eKnowledge.
Service members (Active Duty, Guard, Reserve, Veterans and Retired), DoD employees and civilians performing military support qualify for the program. Eligible relatives and dependents of service members also qualify.
The SAT and ACT PowerPrep Program, which retails for $200, is available free upon request (there is a nominal charge for materials and shipping). It consists of 11 hours of video instruction, 3,000 files of supplemental test prep material, sample questions and practice tests. Students select the training they need and study at their own pace.
The sponsorship is in alliance with the DoD and is entering its eighth year. eKnowledge has donated 200,000 programs valued at over $42 million at no profit to the company.
